I love to cook, but do I "LOVE" cooking enough that I will still enjoy it if that is my job? Probably not.
That being said, I love trying out new recipes, but it is so frustrating and discouraging if it seems like a good recipe turns out not so good. That is a waste of time and money.
There is one time I tried a casserole recipe and it was so bad that we were slowly and quietly eating. I guess we were processing in our minds if we were imagining it was bad or it was bad for real... then I had to put the fork down and told everyone to stop eating. They had this look of relief and gladly stopped eating. I think we went out to get something afterwards. That has never happened to us. That is why we refer to that as the "bad dinner incident" and laugh.
This recipe on the other hand... it. was. so YUMMY!
It was easy, tasted great, and not too pricey to make. What more can you ask for?
I knew it was going to be good when I tasted the sauce, but my family... once they had their first bite, their eyes got wide and they said, "Mmm!"
Now, that is a good sign.
It is exciting to find a good new recipe. I added it to my binder right away!
