After all the gorgeous baked goods this week giving you not ONE but TWO decadent Valentine’s treats, I thought it would be fun to post some of my recipe flops.
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.
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.
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!
In the end, you HAVE to try a lot of recipes to come across the GOOD ones. I’ll keep screening them for you, my dears… but I couldn’t resist sharing some of the flops I’ve had along the way.
What’s the worst concoction you’ve made lately?
[…] versions, with no luck. Remember those macaroni and cheese muffins I talked about with my Friday Food Flops? Yeah… that wasn’t enough. I needed the real deal […]
