If you’re like me, you love to cook. You love trying new recipes and experimenting in the kitchen. But lately, you’ve been feeling burned out. You’re tired of trying new recipes only to have them turn out mediocre at best. And you’re especially tired of recipes that look amazing online but turn out to be complete flops. Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone. I, too, have been feeling the same way.
Why is it that so many recipes disappoint? I think there are a few reasons. First of all, recipes are often written by people who are not professional chefs. They may not have the same level of experience or knowledge as someone who has been trained in the culinary arts. Secondly, recipes can be very specific and if you don’t have all of the ingredients or equipment, they’re not going to turn out right. Finally, some recipes are just plain bad.
So, what’s a home cook to do? I say, it’s time to take matters into our own hands. It’s time to stop trusting recipes from the internet and start trusting our own instincts.
Here’s why I’ll never trust a recipe from the internet again:
1. They’re often written by amateurs.
As I mentioned before, many recipes are written by people who are not professional chefs. They may not have the same level of experience or knowledge as someone who has been trained in the culinary arts. This can lead to recipes that are inaccurate, unclear, or just plain bad.
2. They can be very specific.
Recipes can be very specific and if you don’t have all of the ingredients or equipment, they’re not going to turn out right. This is especially true of baking recipes. I have tried numerous baking recipes that call for ingredients that I don’t have and equipment that I don’t have. The results have been less than stellar.
3. Some recipes are just plain bad.
Let’s face it, some recipes are just plain bad. They may be poorly written, use ingredients that are hard to find, or be missing key steps. Whatever the reason, bad recipes are frustrating and a waste of time.
4. They often don’t turn out as good as they look.
One of the most frustrating things about recipes from the internet is that they often don’t turn out as good as they look. The photos are usually beautiful, but the reality is often a far cry from the picture-perfect results.
5. They can be a lot of work.
Many recipes from the internet are a lot of work. They often require multiple steps and can be time-consuming to make. This is fine if the recipe turns out well, but if it doesn’t, it’s a huge wasted effort.
So, there you have it. These are just a few of the reasons why I’ll never trust a recipe from the internet again. I’m not saying that all recipes from the internet are bad. I’m sure there are some good ones out there. But, for me, the risk is just not worth it. I’d rather spend my time cooking recipes that I know will turn out well.
