Recipes were made to be broken!

In the spirit of trying to grow my little baby blog I'm going to participate in Blogtember!  This fun little prompt/challenge is hosted by Jenni @ Story of My Life.  I had a lot of fun doing her last link up so I thought, what the heck!

Today's prompt reads: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered.  I'm going a little outside the box here! 

Well said, Julia!
I believe that recipes were meant to be broken!  If you always follow the rules then you'll miss out on the passion and creativity just waiting to come out!  I have a passion for cooking and a lot of great information to pass on!  Stick with me kid and you'll never go wrong!

1.  I cannot stress this enough... I've learned that it is SO important to salt things!  Have you ever tasted something and thought, hmmm this is SO good but I need a little salt?  Fail.  No... epic FAIL.  Taste buds are always subjective but 99% of the time, a little salt can make something perfect!

2.  No, I'm not going to tell you to always drink wine while cooking- but it can't hurt!  That is, unless you're really drunk and can't taste things and end up burning down the house-oops?  Try different things and don't be scared!  Wine, balsamic vinegar, cooking sherry and scented oils are great additions that can really give you cooking a little kick!

3.  Oh so true.  If you don't enjoy it, it's going to taste like that.  If you have a passion and love for it, it will taste so much better.  Do you remember Mom's special ingredient that made everything taste so good?  It's salt LOVE!

Those are a couple of tips to get you going on your path of fearless abandon in your kitchen.  Break the rules and experiment with your passion for cooking!  Who knows, maybe it'll create another kind of spice in your life?  *meow*

Until next time...


  1. People who love to eat AAARE the best people! :) I think my next hurdle to cross will be macaroons! :) They look so fun and intriguing...

    I agree that the rules are meant to be broken! Never be afraid to make it your own. :)

    1. I would be willing to test said macaroons when the time comes! I'm a team player like that!

  2. I love this :D So glad you're doing the Blogtember challenge! I did it in May and I'm so glad she's hosting another :-) I love these quotes. It's true: as the cook you have to bring a recipe the soul it's been missing!

    1. I did the May challenge as well and LOVED it. Ok, in all honesty I crapped out at the end but it was my second week blogging EVER and I was so not prepared, ha! I'm ready for it this time!
