I learned the hard way this weekend that not all recipes work out. Sometimes, it's the recipe. Other times, its the utensils and ingredients that aren't working. And finally, there's the times when the fail is completely your own fault. Those are the worst of all.
Luckily, the failed recipe this time was completely the mixer and recipe. My family and I went out of town and stayed with two other families in this lovely home in Michigan City, Indiana. To show off my cooking skills, I donned the apron that was located in the house and pulled out Pinterest to look for a new recipe. My choice: Chocolate Cookie Dough Truffles (this recipe is on another website, since it wasn't deserving of this site). I am a chocolate nerd, so chocolate cookie dough, raw, was the best idea ever, in my opinion.
Turns out, though, that the recipe itself wasn't very good. For some unknown reason, the whole mixture was extremely dry. If I were to make it again, I'd say add 1 1/3 cups of milk in, instead of just 1/3 a cup. Also, the mixer in the home was extremely weird. No, not weird, it was severely broken. Because of this, the recipe could only be consumed with an extra glass or two of milk.
That's not to say it isn't a good recipe, it just wasn't my favorite. It also taught me a very valuable lesson that not all recipes will work out. Once you understand this, cooking will become much more enjoyable.
Hopefully, everything on this website works for you! If not, send me an email! I'd love to hear from you!
