On Cooking

I’m good at cooking, but you know what I’m not good at? Writing down recipes.

I just don’t function in a way that is conductive to recipes.

I judge things on texture, on color. I spice things by smell.

When I try writing down something I’m making, at best I forget to write something down. At worst, I add way to much chili. It’s also just not… fun. It’s unsatisfying and not at all stimulating. Trying to write down recipes turns a magical creative thing into Work.

I still want to share things, but I’m going to have to figure out how a way to do that without the drawbacks of writing a traditional recipe.
