Not every meal is a masterpiece, and there are times where I am just plain underwhelmed by a recipe. It can be one that is pinned a million times on Pinterest, or even one shared by a fellow blogger. In the end, it doesn’t even come close to tantalizing my tastebuds. (i.e. the Fish Sauce debacle from a few weeks back…)
Now, for a food blogger, you get to the end of the process…. you’ve taken all of those pictures, You have the step by step process beautifully captured before you ever take the first bite. It makes it even more disappointing when something doesn’t quite work out.
WW Buffalo Chicken Bites were what this was supposed to be. Found the recipe on Pinterest, but it made more of a buffalo chicken soupy mess.
Macaroni and Cheese Muffins… Another Pinterest find. This was supposed to be my answer to my Kraft Mac and Cheese cravings… but it was just bland city. I even doused it with hot sauce to choke it down, but it just wasn’t good.
Even though the pics are pretty… there’s no way I’d post the recipe. I don’t post things that are just “ok” afterall. I just don’t think that’s fair to you guys. I mean, what if that’s the only recipe you try… and it’s lackluster??? I just can’t have that.
Rutabaga Fries… I felt better when my girl Gina over at Skinnytaste agreed that rutabaga fries are a no-go. I tried to like them… I really did…
How about my two-time failed attempt to make bourbon bbq sauce? Yeah… no need to share all that!
And, while I don’t have a picture of it tonight to share… my kitchen gets messy too. I mean, how could it not with all this food in it?? I get a lot of questions about how I keep things so neat. Silly, readers…. I just don’t take pictures of the mess!
