Recipe FAIL

I wouldn’t call myself a gourmet chef, and I don’t really make up recipes off the top of my head… so I generally spend a little time each week perusing my small collection of cookbooks, or cooking websites for recipes that I can use for dinner. My most recent exciting discovery is The Nest website (sequel to “The Knot” for brides-to-be, prequel to “The Bump” for moms-to-be and so on… they seriously have you set up for life) filled with articles and information for newly-weds from decorating to cooking for two or buying a new home. I’ve had some fun searching through their recipes database and decided to try this one out last night for dinner:

Unfortunately, it didn’t work out as expected. It could have been that I’m recovering from a cold and my sense of smell (therefore, taste) is still a little off… or it could just be the recipe, but DH and I were both a little put off. I didn’t even finish mine! His first comment was “Tastes like ketchup….” (and I had left the ketchup out of the recipe). I was really hoping it would be as delectable as it looks in the photo, but it was definitely a recipe FAIL. Perhaps it needs some tweaking? I’d be willing to try again with suggestions…. any takers?

    In my opinion, there are too many wonderful recipes out worth trying that there's no sense in trying out a fail again… at least, not for a while.

    This is by far my favorite cooking blog right now: They've got a great recipe index worth perusing.
