Mixed Bag Mondays: Mushrooms and Waffles

I swear I’m not being lazy, but I just don’t see the need to go through all the steps of sharing some recipes that aren’t ones I would make again. Let’s start with the waffles.

What’s wrong with this waffle?

Mixed Bag Mondays: Strawberries and Cakes

I know…it isn’t strawberry season, but I still wanted to share these. I used a recipe from Smitten Kitchen and also a recipe from a cookbook. But to be honest, I can’t tell them apart. I’m not positive which recipe came from which place. I think the ones directly below were from a cookbook and the circle ones were from Smitten Kitchen. I think.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Catching Up Time

Let’s be real here. I have so many things I’ve made from before the Chiplet was born, as well as right after. Some were were hits and some were not. None were awful, but some were just okay.

Regardless, I keep looking for and trying new recipes because I hope to improve my own skills. I had never made grilled pizza before, although I have made scallion pancakes.

I need to pull out my old recipe for the pancakes, because, well, let’s start there…

Mixed-Bag Monday (part 16): Overly Complicated Recipes

Sometimes, a recipe looks good in theory and even executes well, but just isn’t worth repeating. I’ve had a few of those recipes recently. The first was a garlic bread recipe from America’s Test Kitchen. I watched the video, and it looked delicious. Nothing too crazy if it actually worked as well as it said. Well, it ended up being fussier than I would like for garlic bread that tasted worse than what I usually make. Soooo, that was definitely not a keeper. I thought about trying it again, but I really don’t think it would matter.
