|Breakfast fixins at my house yesterday. All homegrown goodness that the kids made into omelettes!|
The Cowboy claims he knew I was the one because we were such a good match. He told me:
"You have cows, and I like chasing cows. You like to cook, and I like to eat."
It's true. I did (and still do) have cows...and I love to cook. And I have a shelf full of cookbooks to prove it. But, thanks to the Internet, I actually don't use my cookbooks much any more. I prefer websites that offer not just recipes, but recipe reviews. We all want to cook something tried and true, after all.
If you also like those cooking websites I wonder if you're as amused and befuddled by those one-star reviews that show up on nearly every popular recipe. You know the ones; they go something like this:
"Oh, this recipe was awful! I was out of lemon juice, so I substituted prune juice. And we don't eat sugar, so I omitted that - and the cream. That's just too fattening! Then, because I had to go somewhere, I upped the temperature fifty degrees and reduced the cooking time in half. It was horrible! Too bland and crumbly - and it tasted like prunes! I'll never make it again!"Of course, they're hysterical to read - unless you submitted the original recipe. Then they'd just be maddening.
