I personally would be quite insulted if I found out that my host felt it necessary to both chlorinate and boil anything I had come into contact with. If a person is really so filthy, why are you hosting them in the first place?

One year at Thanksgiving, I offered to host my brother and his girlfriend overnight. I fed breakfast, lunch and dinner. My brother drank all the beer I had purchased. They showed up empty handed, even though in our family its a tradition to bring something, particularly for Thanksgiving. The girlfriend asked for the leftovers for her cats! I was so shocked I just did it, I should have said no in retrospect. In the morning, I found that she had hidden two of the sodas she brought for herself in the meat drawer. She had gotten three meals plus snacks, leftovers to bring home, and she was concerned about someone taking one of "her" sodas. Cheap cheap cheap.

It's not that I won't share recipes, its often that I can't. I rarely measure, so writing down a recipe is difficult. I only measure for things like baked goods where the chemical balance is important. When I share my process for cooking something, I see people's eyes glaze over. They want an exact recipe, they don't want to pay attention to what is in front of them and improvise, which is how I approach food prep.
