Now, I did take my camera with me and I had planned to get some great food buffet photos. But as I walked into my parents' house for Easter dinner, low and behold my family had started eating without us. According to my watch, and my husband's watch, we were not late. But they just "couldn't wait." Because heaven forbid they wait a few extra minutes for the rest of the family to arrive, on a holiday no less, with two of the side dishes, the utensils, and dessert. I was very upset about the whole situation. So my beautiful carrot cake, deviled eggs, jello salad, and the rest of the Easter buffet went un-photographed. I guess holidays with the family can't always be picture perfect.
So instead you get my win/lose food review for two new recipes I tried this past week. Because I think it is important to share the disasters as well as the triumphs.
The moral of this story: You win some, you lose some. And that's ok. How can you grow your collection of well loved recipes if you never take a risk and try something new?
