    I once spent three days making a dish, I called it three day chilii, although it wasnt really chili. It had a bit would of this and a bit of that, I know the ingrediants, I know the process I took, but I have never been able to replicate the dish from that first time. And so it became im great lost recipe, and its not the only time Ive had this happen either. Im wandering if I'm the only person that does this

    I never learned to cook when I was younger, although I saw my Mom prepare many a meal.
    I tried to replicate her meatballs, escarole soup with the little meatballs (different from the large), and her pasta fragioli.
    I got close to the large meatballs, but the others- not even close.
    Simple recipes, I know, yet can't recreate mama's magic.
    Sometimes I'm glad I can't. ....keeps her on that pedestal. ...

    That happens to me all the time. I've finally learned to try and scribble down what I did immediately after a meal if something comes out good. It's not an exact recipe, but it gives me a place to start. Assuming I can read my handwriting later.

    Quit writing with your toes!
  5. That's the beauty of it. Won't be the same, it may even be a bit better next time.
    Look for some other recipes and mix and match the good ideas to create a recipe what really works for you.

    It looks like you've mastered the feet writing. It's time to step your game up :)
