Her Recipe

I love her stories, so I thought I’d take a chance with a recipe that she posted.  I wondered at her insistence upon a certain ingredient, but went with it.  I pondered how little butter she used — and nowhere near enough salt — but I went along to see what happened.  In the end, I tossed the misshapen, inedible results and went with what I know.  Seems like a metaphor for telling stories, does it not?
