I think it’s fair to say that everyone has a chocolate chip cookie recipe or a pancakes recipe tucked away in their recipe binder. Maybe it was mom’s or grandma’s…or maybe it’s just a recipe from Pinterest that ACTUALLY WORKED. Regardless of where it came from, having a few classic recipes in your wheelhouse is never a bad idea.
Though I love cookbooks and collecting recipes, I actually really like to be creative in the kitchen. A dash of something here, a sprinkle there…you never know what just might work!
I know this can be stressful for some folks…but seriously, if you have the staples down pat, you really can have fun adding in different textures and flavors…I mean the worst thing that happens is you just order Chinese, right?
So, as my mother would say, “put on your big girl pants!”. These classic recipes are great to have in your back pocket in case you find yourself entertaining a crowd or needing to cook up a last-minute meal.
