Sharing your "secret" recipes?

mollyomormon | Oct 30, 2006 06:23 PM

A post on another board here made me think of it. The poster was mentioning how he could never give out his wife's secret recipe because she would kill him. I totally don't get this at all. Why wouldn't a person want to share delicious food? I can sort of understand if it's a restaurant where part of their livelihood is based on protecting how the things they're known for are made, but as a person. Can someone who refuses to share their recipes explain?
