Of course, what good are recipes? Everyone's oven is different, the

eggs ate ... it's just too many variables to draw any useful conclusion.
There's no point in trying to measure the flour exactly when everything
else will just change the result anyway.
 As a matter of fact, that is true. It is a waste of time to make exact 
measurements of flour, or liquids or eggs or herbs or.... Recipes are rarely 
followed exactly by good cooks, mostly because of the variables involved. An 
experienced cook knows they are ballpark figures and pays attention to the 
appearance, taste and texture to create a great dish. The point is enjoying 
the food, not how exact the rule of thumb is that gets you to the food. I 
think of food recipes about the same way I think of wpg, CO2 and nutrients.
