OK, so maybe that’s a little bit harsh for a title, but there are just some ideas in my brain that don’t lend themselves well to actual, edible foodstuffs. I mean, we all try, right? Sometimes trying just isn’t good enough when you’re talking about things you want to put into your face and chew. That said, I can’t always tell what’s hot and what tastes like snot just from an image. Can you?
1. So how about these bon bons? Did they make the grade?
Bzzzt! No. A nice idea turned into a bad execution when I decided to try coating hamburger meatballs in a ganache to see what they’d taste like. Proof that two great tastes do NOT go together, this is definitely a case of bon-bons… gone wrong-wrong.
2. Bread, the staff of life. Was this loaf love?
You might have one life to live, but in this case, it was the case of no loaf to love. The bread, while ready for its close-up, Mr. Demille, was absolutely horrible. Sometimes it’s really difficult to nail the perfect bread. And other times, you want to use it to nail in roofing brads.
3. Beet juice. That’s right. I said beet juice.
While the concoction looks like something Edward Cullen would snarf down for a morning get-up-and-go drink, this juice was surprisingly terrific. Beets here were combined with celery, green peppers and carrots for a healthy vegetable drink I actually enjoyed.
