Do you cook recipes known to you or do you search new ones off the internet?

My mom's a great cook,there's no doubt about that but when we get used to something too much, we kinda start not liking it much or the more atleast the way we used to before.That happens to everything, be it food be clothes and all.So I kinda help my mom on this,not that i dont help her out in anything else.lol. I search out recipes for her and if she finds them interesting,she gives them a shot.Ain't gonna hurt trying right? So how about you,do you try new recipes or just prefer sticking to the old ones? If your not the cook at home how about your wife or your mother? Do they try something new by getting recipes off the web?

I very rarely cook at all, but when I do cook I cook what I already know, I very rarely try anything new. If there's a dish at a restaurant that I like and want to try to make myself, I will look it up online, but I like to use family recipes most of the time. I have even posted a couple of my family's recipes on the internet so others could use them such as my mom's "preacher cookies" that most other people refer to as no-bake cookies... Here's the link if you want to try them: http://www.epinions.com/content_4179140740

I mostly stick to what I know. My boyfriend doesnt like everything so I will not try new thing for him. I'M so afraid he will not like it. My brother is pretty good in inventing new recepies, si something I'M trying adding new ingredients to things I do.

I use the same basic recipe when I am running behind. I cange a few things up in it so that it taste different to the children. I also get recipes off of the internet or cookbooks. I will change up those recipes as well to adjust them into food that my children will eat.

I cook not alot, but when I do it, I do my recipies (from my mother mostly) or from the internet. I use recipies from internet when I'm cooking a different meat that I don't have any recipies on it or when I want to try something different.

I always need to cook by myself,sometimes i will follow the recipe from the web or those which are posted by other mylot members,othertimes if i want to try something new, I will go to the internet to search for something new adn try to make it by myself when I have free time so that I can share with my friends.

I have used recipes that I got off the internet. I think it is fun to try new recipes and see how my family likes it. I also stick to a couple of my sure fire ones that I have been using for years. As far as the new recipes, if I think that I can do it, then I will. I cooked a whole mexican meal with recipes I got off the internet and my family loved it. I think it is fun to get new recipes off the internet, if they don't turn out the way you like, then you can tweak it to your liking. That is the beauty of getting recipes off the internet. Good for your mom to try new recipes.

I can't cook lol. I am not sure if being a guy makes it an "excuse". Anyway, my Mum is the one doing the cooking. And she gets recipes from friends or cookbooks occasionally. Sometimes she just experiments it herself.
