Sometimes, I swear, I can follow recipes exactly the way they’re written.
But they rarely turn out as well as when I take a few liberties. Know what I mean?
The vegetables cut in your family’s preferred shapes.
The sugar and salt adjusted to your tastes.
Even adding the ingredients in the order you’re most comfortable with (liquids first vs. dry ingredients first) that leaves you with the energy to bake or cook with LOVE. Preparing food with a loving heart is the real secret to success.
It’s the thoughtfulness and care that goes into it. The customization.
And really, if we did everything with that much attention, wouldn’t the world be a better place?
