Although Lee owns well over 400 cookbooks, she most often just cooks without using a recipe. However, she does read her cookbooks and scours the net for recipe ideas. When she does use recipes, she chooses reputable sources and then follows the recipe exactly. If left with no choice, she will substitute. (see substitutions).
