Default How to create your own recipe

Hi. I'm new to the group. I love to bake and I was interested in
creating my own recipe. However, since I've never done this before I
need a few pointers. Does anyone know of any websites or books that
could help me with this? Thank you!


In my opinion, the most helpful book for baking would be:
"Cookwise" by Shirley Corriher

Also check out: "On food and Cooking" by Harold McGee

These will give you information about how baking and cooking and
ingredients work, so you can alter or create recipes from a
knowledgeable standpoint, not just trial and error.
