I hate recipes that ask of odd measurements. Is that OCD?
You won’t see me using three quarters of a can of tomatoes. I’m going to use the whole can, or half a can and save the other half for a second dish.
You’ll see that most of my recipes ask for 1 cup, half a cup, 1 can, half a can, 1 packet, half a packet etc. It just makes sense to me.
It can be a real pain the arse though. I have a thing about splitting eggs. I know, you can save your bowl of egg yolks or whites for another dish. But I can’t count the number of times that a bowl of egg yolks has sat in my fridge until it is time to throw it out. So now I just avoid making recipes that call for split eggs. Or if it’s possible, I throw in whole eggs. Naughty, I know.
What do you do? Do you throw in full measures of things? Or do you stick to recipes?
p.s. This is another reason why I’m no good at baking.
