That August Personage uses recipes??? What a hack! ;-)

Seriously, though, I must admit honestly that I don't always test  
recipes in real time, either; more often I do a simulation run in my  
head. But it's probably a combination of experience and extreme luck  
to have gotten away with it all these years, and I certainly would  
neither counsel my method for anyone not comfortable with it, or for  
anyone for whom there's another method that works better. I am all  
about doing what works for people.

I hope you were able to make her eat her words, Antonia!
