A recipe for love 
A recipe for disaster
A recipe for commitment 
A recipe to hold it together 
A recipe to make it fall apart

The rules of the game are simple

A tiger in the apartment 
Is a recipe for a hospital visit

Vinegar for eggs is a recipe 
For a failed cake

Lack of attention 
Is a recipe for a failed marriage

Innovations are interesting 
But recipes WORK.

In times of crisis 
Such as ours
A recipe is 
A direction 
A hope

The measure is the man and woman and us
