2020 Recipe Disasters.
Annnd I’m back with alllll of the recipe disasters in this disastrous year! As usual, it’s my annual recipe disasters day!
Obviously 2020 has been a doozy in a multitude of ways!
Like most of you, I probably cooked more this year than I EVER have, and that’s saying something since it’s cooking is pretty much my job.
If you’re new around here, I’ve shared my recipe disasters every year after Christmas for nearly a decade. While I had MANY more disasters than this, these ones took the cake.
Literally! I mean… not even sure what that one up there was supposed to be.
This beer cheese soup fell very flat and did not impress these sourdough pretzels. It was weirdly gross.
A million times trying to make ramen mac and cheese work. Spoiler alert: it didn’t.
I made these asparagus tempura bowls and they were actually good but I mean, look at that asparagus. Looks like worms or something!
This baked cauliflower is a take on a restaurant dish and good in theory, but I couldn’t figure out how to make the recipe work. Plus, could it BE any less appetizing!?
These were snickers stuffed cookie bars that totally did not work. AT ALL.
Really great job at making my garlic butter naan!
OH the sourdough fails. SO MANY sourdough fails. I still haven’t made one good loaf. In my defense, I haven’t tried since the summer. But my starter is still going strong!
Most of my loaves came out completely flat. Whomp whomp.
Burning all the things. So many things.
We tried to make grilled bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers. What a disaster. The bacon wouldn’t cook, the filling melted out – it was quite the mess. They smelled amazing though.
And this broccoli gratin was as dry as dry could be. Boring, dry and nothing special at all.
My saddest fail was this year’s christmas cake! I just couldn’t get one to work. This attempt at chocolate cake with white chocolate frosting – it was bad. The frosting was basically cement. The coconut looked terrible. The topping!! I mean what was I doing? I think my kids could put this together better than I could. Whomp whomp. 2020 does it again!
