    My cooking methods change with how well I know the dish I'm cooking. If it's just for me (or maybe me and one other person) I'll almost always improvise, it's unique and a lot more rewarding. However, if it's for my whole family or a dinner party, I'll follow the recipie to a "T" so I don't mess it up.;)

    I don't cook. Except toast, which really doesn't count.
