I'm often inspired by recipes that I read on food blogs, in cookbooks or through sites like Pinterest. I get really excited to find new recipes, search through the comment section (to make sure the recipe is accurate) and put them on my to-do list.
Over the past couple of weeks I've tried two random recipes that absolutely failed on all accounts. The combination of flavors wasn't well-balanced, cooking time/temp was off and they were just plain untasty. Last night, I drowned my sorrows in a bunch of pretzel rods and a pile of Nutella.
These weren't complicated recipes, and I'm really good at following directions. It's not that I'm doubting myself or my abilities as a cook. Maybe I need a new oven :)
What do you do when a recipe doesn't work out? Do you make adjustments and try again? Or just toss that one out and start anew?
