Cooking aint science

Is it?

(I know,,,technically combining different ingredients to make a different one *is* science,,,,but not real science.)

We were going to try another new recipe for pork..because we don't belong to an 8th century repressive religion. Anyway, she looked at the recipe and followed the thing right down to using oil instead of lard like she usually does.

I asked her why she did the taters that way? She told me "that's what the recipe said."
I told her, it's not a chemistry project- it's a reccomendation. An idea about what to do.

She was adament- the recipe says what you- you do it.
That's her technical mind.

I use recipes as an idea of where to start.

What about you?
