Ever have one of those recipes that you just can’t wait to try? In fact, after hearing just the title, you can almost taste it, and it is good! In your imagination you savour every last bite. And then you get all of your ingredients together and the excitement builds. It looks beautiful going into the oven, smells heavenly while cooking, and looks perfect when it comes out of the pan.
And then you taste it.
And it doesn’t live up to its expectations.
And your husband doesn’t want to eat anymore (and he loves dessert.)
And the perfect dish now sits in your fridge sad and unappreciated.
Has this happened to you?
This weekend I was flipping through old magazines and found a recipe for Upside Down Pear Gingerbread Cake. I LOVE gingerbread and thought the pear part sounded delicious. And it certainly looks good, doesn’t it?
It will get eaten (because I hate wasting food) and then I will move on to another intriguing recipe and hope that the results are better.
(And perhaps I can apply what I learned from Pete the Cat: Did Andi Cry? Goodness no! She kept on going and singing her song….knowing that there is another, better, gingerbread recipe out there just waiting to be found!)
