We have a long standing family joke- don't ask my mother to make the same meal twice. When my sister and I were young, she used to make to most delicious meals. However, my mother, like me, rarely used recipes, and rarely measured her ingredients. As a result, try as she might, she was often unable to replicate meals that she had made. The best example was when my sister requested duplicate of a delicious Italian pasta salad for her birthday one year. The resulting dinner had many more qualities of lo mein. I started A Boston Food Diary as a way to keep track of my own recipes, so I wouldn't suffer the same fate of course, and to explore my inherent passion of food.
