    I don't really cook a lot, but whenever I make the mistake of taking up the food making, my wife says that I add way too much salt. There you go, my own personal touch to food is a mistake. Damn, I'm good with cooking. I guess there is a reason why my wife doesn't let me cook too often. :p

    We have the same problem. I always go for salty taste so when I handle a dish, expect it to be slightly salty over the ordinary. It is ironic that I have kidney stones that are recurring. Oh, let's not talk of that, sorry.

    My husband is the cook in the house but sometimes his taste also falters so he calls on me to have a taste of what he's cooking. And when I say it needs more salt, he would shake his head and say that's pretty good already. But in fairness to me, that salty taste freed me from the burden of cooking. Neat eh?

    Well, I am certainly glad I'm not the only one, or that my "personal touch" isn't THAT personal, haha. I guess that a bit of extra salt is better than not having the food be salty enough, even if you can just shake some salt on top after the dish is done. :p

    I have to confess that I tend to go a bit mad with garlic. I made potato pancakes yesterday with loads of garlic, but it does mean that our house remains free of vampires.

    I remember doing different recipes from cookbooks (well I still do, when I have the time), but I always added my own personal touch and swap the used products a little bit. ;)

    I like to sprinkle instant coffee granules over vanilla ice cream and sometimes on chocolate ice cream.
