A note on my “recipes”
Sharing my ideas for what to do with leftovers is easy but explaining the actual recipe is a bit harder. What I mean is that I cannot give exact amounts to add because the leftover amount will always be a little different for everyone. So most of these recipes require an ‘eyeballing’ of amounts. This is also how I cook–I do not usually measure anything. What I make rarely requires exact amounts of ingredients. That is why I don’t bake often!
