Cooking without a recipe

Growing up my mom rarely opened the bottom drawer in the kitchen containing the recipe books. I always thought to myself that she was probably missing stuff in our food or measuring everything wrong. But now... I find myself doing the same thing. It started out with me adding more of the things I like into my recipes and less or none of the nasty stuff. The last two nights I wanted to make some really yummy food and had looked through recipes here. But then when I got home to where we have no internet I decided to go out on a limb. First I made up a recipe for a shrimp, vegetable, and dill oven omelet. Then it was mango curry chicken and rice.
Ingredients:
Chicken
      Curry
      Parsley
      Salt
      Pepper
Rice
      Chicken broth
      Parsley
On top
      Mango
      Green peppers
      Onions

I even found this article about cooking without a recipe. And I like to go here for inspiration.
Make up something all your own. Do it, I dare you. Cook without a recipe.

  1. haha I love cooking this way! Once you get the hang of what works and what doesn't...you can really create lots of love with food. And I'm sure I learned this from my mom.

  2. I do this all the time. Chad thought I was just weird for doing this. But I rarely ever cook anything that doesn't turn out.
    I think the way you cook tells a lot about your personality. I think I will have to try out your recipe soon.
