Sometimes when I get home from the Saturday Farmers Market I just want to dive in and start cooking. This passion keeps me from using exact measurements or even reading a recipe all the way through! This way of cooking comes with pitfalls but also great spur-of-the-moment culinary victories.
Studying recipes isn't practical when the winds of inspiration are blowing through your kitchen, so here are some simple guideline recipes. They are designed for the adventurous cook who wants to "just throw something together." They are easy enough for even the novice to succeed - no measurements, no fancy techniques, just real fast food.
