Hope5 7 years Yes, all the time! Hope5 7 years Yes, all the time! MissEnglish07 7 years I love experimenting in the kitchen. It is such a satisfaction to do something new that you have never done before. I am confident that with all of the experimentation I do, I could walk into a culinary school and be just fine. :) CestLaVie 7 years Also, I have my "tried and true" recipies that people have actually requested and are a hit every time- guacomole, creamy cucumbers, buried cherry cookies.... CestLaVie 7 years Yes but not if I am going to a function where I don't know a lot of the people. If it is a family thing for me, I will try out something new but I don't want people to give me the "she's a bad cook" title for trying something I made for the first time if it bombs and they have never tried anything yummy I have made before.

There has only been once that a recipe turned out so badly that I actually threw it away and went to the phone to order pizza. Marci 7 years I'm always trying new things in the kitchen. Of course, the new recipes I try are things I know will appeal to my fiance and me, but it's so much fun to find something new to add into the rotation. julieulie 7 years I love trying new recipes, but so often I find that the ingredients are so expensive. Living in the middle of DC, food prices are ridiculous, and I can't always afford to spend a lot of money on something that won't come out well or on one expensive spice that I need 2 tablespoons of, but can only buy by the jar. dior_show 7 years I always want to cook after watching the Food Network, but I have my favorite shows (and cookbooks) and types of food I usually stick too. mwmsjuly19 7 years That's why I collect cookbooks -- to cook new things! Funfunfun -- until I have to do the dishes! lms 7 years Yes I do. I have quite a few Williams Sonoma cookbooks and I regularly go on their website for recipes. They have really delicious items. chellebaby 7 years I love trying out new recipes or putting a twist on old ones. I'm constantly whipping up something I've never had before. crispet1 7 years Ive tried a few new recipes this summer and theyve all turned out pretty good. Nothings more depressing than a new recipe that is a flop! :( darkoblivion 7 years At least 3-4 meals per week are something new. I like variety and I love to cook! bandages 7 years Yeah, I love finding and trying new recipes. As long as I don't try to make up a recipe. Those are always a train wreck. LaLaLaurie06 7 years by the time i come home from work, i'm too hungry to get down and dirty in the kitchen. over the weekend, i'm either eating out with my boyfriend or at his parents' house where i get a nice home-cooked meal. davie-k 7 years Of course, half the time cooking is about experimenting with new recipes, trying new ingredients and making your own recipes. That's the best fun, right?? lulis 7 years All the time. I love to cook! lulis 7 years All the time. I love to cook! mollywog 7 years I don't know if it really counts as trying NEW recipes, but I constantly improvise and change the things that I regularly cook. I'll change the spices or try adding something or substituing something. Tuna noodle cassarole is the bomb when you use chopped black olives and not peas.
