Recalling Cooked Dishes Recipes

Filed under: Kitchen,Personal — agnes @ 4:51 am


I have memory problem, recalling recipes I made up in my head and cooked before. Most of the dishes I attempted are from my imagination combined with recipes, blogs I read. I find it difficult to follow exact way as I do not have the same equipment nor weather condition nor ingredients nor personal taste. I made up one small part of the recipe and the rest from the what I can recall from reading or seen it done or tasted.
