Failburgers

Recently I've not been cooking for myself very much. I'm not quite sure why. I think it has to do with the ungodly heat in Georgia.

Or the fun I've been having outside my apartment. Or the fantastic restaurants that my foodie friends have been introducing me to.

Anyway, a friend demanded a blog post, so I scrounged up ye olde memory card, looking for something from the past that was fabulous but unblogged.

I found nothing.

That's not true. I found things, they just weren't good. But... I feel like blogging, so you guys can enjoy these failburgers from days gone by.

This muffin...


was cobbled together and ended up being a bland, whole wheat, lemon, lime, sour cream muffin. Like Mountain Dew... as a hearty breakfast food. Gross.

These handmade peirogi...


were so blah I tossed them out.

This mustardy potato, sausage, spinach salad...


was just that. And I didn't even think about the fact that I don't like two of those things until I tried to eat it.

This... this...


I have no idea what this is. But I think I remember it was good. I fell into a one pot place for a few weeks and everything looked kinda like this. But it all tasted fab. (Because I threw jalapenos in every pot.)

These egg-free banana chocolate chip cookies...


somehow sent some folks running for the loo. They were amazingly tasty. But... apparently the egg-free, dairy-free substitutions I made were... too much all at once?

Finally, these beautiful pancakes...


tasted like a salt lick.

So... I'm hoping that by showing you the seedy underbelly of food blogging, I'll inspire myself to get back in that kitchen and turn out something mouth-watering and delicious. Until then, loves, don't make my mistakes.

This made me lol so hard and simultaneously feel better about. ... well, everything. So glad to have you in the peach state one more year. .. and yeah I know that what I just wrote is very glad-you-have-bad-days-so-i-dont-seem-as-big-of-a-fuck-up, and I'm okay with that today. Now about those brownies...

Amanda said...

kmari03: No, that dish was totally of my own doing. But consider this me asking for the greek baked beans recipe! That sounds awesome. : )

"The seedy underbelly of food blogging" is the winning phrase of the year! Gorgeous pyrogies... gorgeous salt lick, too! My gosh, I can so relate!
