Do You Follow Recipes Exactly

I was just watching the cooking segment on the television program called Homekeepers and they were doing a baked potato skin recipe where one of the hosts didn't followed the recipe for the finished product that they showed (done before they showed how to do recipe ) and the comment was made who knows the combining of everything and putting in the skin may be better that doing it inlayers as was demonstrated with the oil and seasonings brushed in the bottom. and then cheese and bacon added. The finished product where everything was mixed together look goood and they said it tasted good which makes me want to try it the mixed way.. I know except for certain baked goods where a recipe needs to be followed exactly I don't and wonder how many of you out there are like me?

I will take the basics of a recipe and change it up a bit for my liking. I just made chocolate fudge, but used peanut butter chips instead, so its peanut butter fudge. It tasted all right, when I tried a bit off of the spoon, and it smelt heavenly. So sometimes it does work.

Now that one depends. If it is something I've never made before and want to try I will say yes. but then if I don't have all the stuff here then I will say no. Most of the time I don't even use a recipe and just cook. I like it a lot better.

I am one of those who try to follow recipes but often finding oneself trailing off and suddenly winging it. I have made more disasters than successes that's why I try to follow recipe by heart. Sometimes though even after following recipes to the dot, you will find you may still have to make a few adjustments. Cooking, especially if you are not naturally born with the skills, takes practice. I'm still terrible but.....improving in many ways. :)
