Thyme of the Season

I never trust a recipe that encourages me to "season to taste." It's as if the recipe can't make a commitment.
I picture a hefty Italian mama in her apron and floral-print dress (pulled tight across her bosom), wooden spoon in hand, leaning over to taste her pasta sauce.
Though years of taste-testing hot spaghetti sauces have burnt off her taste buds, she will still emphatically declare, "needs more oregano."
Mangia!

One of my fantasies is to have several live-in Mamas of varying ethnicities that spoil me and cook for me...
