How do you get the inspiration for all your great recipes?

From Doug H - Cedarville, MI

I find inspiration everywhere - cookbooks, magazines, restaurants, friends, and remembered flavors. For each book, I start with a list of 75 to 100 ideas, then over the next two years, I add recipe ideas and delete the ideas that don't work. I'm always looking for recipes that are things you really want to eat, with ingredients you can find in a grocery store, and that you feel you can make.
