Recipes That Didn't Make the Blog {Episode 1}

I'm sad that I don't have a new recipe to share with you today.  It's not because of a lack of trying though!  Sometimes I have some really good recipe ideas in my head but they don't quite turn out in real life.  When I first started my blog I shared every single recipe that I made and let you know what I thought and if I'd make it again.  As time has gone on I've edited what I decide to share with you.  And sometimes recipes just don't work out well enough to actually post them.

This was supposed to be like a crockpot pizza casserole.  I used biscuits and pizza sauce and other toppings.  It sounds good but the uncooked biscuits were a bad plan.  It probably would work well in the oven but not so much in the moist environment of the slow cooker.

This one was inspired by a trip to the Caribbean...Jamaican Jerk Chicken.  The texture was good but the flavor was not great.  We all ate it but we all agreed that it wasn't the greatest.  I think jerk chicken is meant to be done on the grill or in the oven.

I had high hopes for this Green Chile and Cheddar Cornbread but it failed me.  My kids wouldn't eat it and I wouldn't eat it either.  It was too salty and it just tasted off.  I really want to try this one again.  I think it has potential if I can get the ingredient ratios right.

This one was supposed to be white beans and rice with some fresh homemade tomatillo salsa.  The problem was that I decided to cook the fresh blender salsa that I made in with the rice.  It was the best salsa ever until it was cooked.  Then it seemed bland and blah.  I want to try this recipe again but add in the salsa after the rice is cooked.  I think it would brighten the dish up and it would be super flavorful.  

Anyhow, hopefully this will be the one and only episode of "recipes that didn't make the blog" and I'll only have wildly successful recipes from now on.  I'm thinking that probably won't be the case but I can only hope, right?!

  1. It makes me feel better about myself to know that other food bloggers don't always succeed! Another thing is when a recipe is delicious, but no matter how you position it, it still looks not-so-good!

    1. You're right! Then those days when the light is bad and you can't get the food to look like it's not under a gray cloud.
