I have a lot of my friends ask for recipes of things when they come over for dinner, but 99% of them are bachelor guys who think that you can substitute cheap shaker parmesan cheese for freshly grated block parmesan in a recipe. I don't give them my special recipes, because I know they will mess it up and blame me.
On the other hand, I lucked out and married a wonderful guy whose mother and grandmother are amazing cooks. He is the oldest out of all the kids, so all the family recipes I want are at my fingertips! Victory is mine!
