I hate when good recipes go bad.
Ok – maybe it wasn’t a good recipe, but it sounded good. Unfortunately Ina Garten can make anything sound good…..and doable.
I shouldn’t blame the Contessa – I’m sure it is something I did. Or didn’t do.
For gosh’s sakes it was only macaroni and cheese. Sure it had like 4lbs of cheese (three different kinds!)…..and bacon and I followed the directions to a T. What could possibly go wrong?
Don’t get me wrong – it wasn’t horrible or inedible. Maybe my expectations were too high. Maybe my skills weren’t high enough. Normally they aren’t when I cook and things still work out. At least I enjoy the process, if not the final product.
….and it’s still harder than I thought to be a food photographer. I don’t know how those guys who do the Ponderosa menu do it!
