I named this blog Recipe or Not because I inherited my dad’s culinary curiosity.
Growing up, I had front row seats to taste-testing meals my dad would simply create on his own. No recipe needed.
I follow in his footsteps.
Sometimes I get the itch to throw the ol’ recipe out the window and start making a meal with only the cooking knowledge I have, the ingredients in the fridge, and sheer willpower to (hopefully) create something scrumptious.
Now I don’t want to lead you to believe that all of my recipe-free dishes will have you coming back for seconds.
But I wanted to share with you this short little tidbit of what I’ve observed:
If you have at least some basic cooking knowledge and know-how, your pièce de résistance won’t be completely inedible.
And anything less than savory can be redeemed by the power of bacon.
