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
The measure is the man and woman and us
