    Getting away from kits too early?

    arent you following someone's directions either way? if its not whoever put the kit together, then its whoever wrote that recipe...? the only difference is your ingredients arent pre-packed together when you get them. im all for (omg i cant believe im going ot use this phrase)...going "outside...
