I do all the cooking and never use a recipe. My wife on the other hand hates to cook (beleive me it's a good thing) and can't cook without a recipe. About 8 years ago I got her 1000 Vegetarian Recipes for Xmas. As of now. . . she's made 2.
Theres a review going for this, it must be hiding in the cookbook lab.
I really like the book.
