This year, I've challenged myself to try a new recipe each week. Generally, I can through some ingredients together and have a somewhat decent (with room for improvement) dish. My past few attempts have been rather lackluster.
Pear struesel with cider glaze: the pears were a bit overripe and really soft. The pastry got really soggy and kind of fell apart at the seam.
Smore bars: sadly, the marshmallows didn't stick to the graham cracker crust very well, so the bars were crumbly and sad.
Smore cupcakes (see a trend?): I used a baking kit and somehow made it incorrectly. The cupcakes were flat, and the marshmallow icing just tasted kind of funny.
Stuffed peppers: the filling was rather tasty, but I didn't bake the peppers long enough. They were a bit too crunchy.
Eventually, I will make something that will be blog worthy. What dishes didn't live up to your expectations?
