If your memory could not be trusted, write down recipes that you like and make sure you remember where you keep them.
Sometime this year, I had a craving for Washington (Hello fellow ex-washington girls, Alma, Faye and Marissa!) carinderia-style giniling. I found several recipes in the net and tweaked them to suit my taste. My first attempt was not bad at all. It was just missing raisins which my husband detests. I wrote the recipe somewhere but unfortunately, after turning the house upside down, could not find it anywhere. Oh well!
