I love cooking. To me, cooking is a science. I love recipes. I love following recipes. I would love to study and learn more of the science behind cooking, but I’m content to follow recipes exactly. I can substitute, especially when I am out of something, and I think just about any dish can use mushrooms. But I love to follow directions and eat.
My husband loves to look. He thinks cooking is an art. He hates recipes. He definitely looks down on me for using them. He likes to cook based on taste or an idea in his head. He cooks from scratch. He doesn’t like using anything from a can or a jar.
