Joy the Baker’s Cutting Room Floor
I think it’s important that you all know something about what comes out of my kitchen: it ain’t all pretty folks. Not every creation that comes out of my kitchen is pretty, polished and ready for its blog debut. The reality is that I have my fair share of flops, dropped eggs, burned butter and dirty dishes… I just don’t usually show those kitchen tidbits with you. Tricky, right?
Today is your lucky day. Here’s a peek at the flops, disasters and otherwise icky recipes I’ve tried and trashed.
Chilled Blueberry Soup. Ok, seriously. Who are you trying to fool? This was just an elaborate recipe for blueberry juice. You tricked me and I resent you Blueberry Soup. This won’t be soon forgotten.
Low Fat Chocolate Mousse with tofu. I think I over whipped the eggs with this little darling. It was so thick and tough just all around noooooooot cute.
Greek Yogurt Frozen Yogurt. I wanted to love you, but holy heck you were thick and rich. Too thick. Too rich.
This Nectarine Cobbler overflowed… big time… while I was one the phone. There was screaming and cursing… mostly because I should have known better.
You were supposed to be a fresh peach scone. Instead you decided to be a bland peach cookie… that’s just not good enough.
Ooooh Cinnamon Rolls. You didn’t fail me. I love you.
Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies. I must have eaten a cool dozen of these cookies trying to decide if they were good or not. I knew with each cookie that they were absolute rubbish. Bleck.
Apricot Scones. Flat and beige Apricot Scones. Note to self: figure out how to make scones. Seriously, how have you not mastered this yet Joy?
Avocado Milkshake. Boooooring picture plus do not like. The photo and taste gods were not with me on this day. For this, and for all of these recipes that I tried and failed.. well, I suppose I just have to shrug my shoulders and laugh you off. Thanks for the lessons… and the memories?
