A series of post of the successes and failures that have come from my recipe ventures through a little phenomenon you have probably heard of called Pinterest.
I had a wild hair and decided to try this rosemary bread. It was a tasty addition to our hearty bowl of soup and made really delicious sandwiches for the week. I pinned it thinking I would make it in the crockpot as mentioned in the notes of pins but the recipe called for the oven, so I made it according to the recipe but I suppose leaving it in the crockpot to rise and bake would be a worthy experiment.
One other note, I was expecting this to taste like the bread at the Macaroni Grill but due to the whole wheatiness of it, it wasn't quite the same. I will sacrifice for the healthy factor.
I've realized my usual pinterest flops are due to elevated expectations. This is one of those that the pictures were so good that I was sure it was going to taste just as good as it looked. And it was easy. So I really wanted it to be eyes-rolling-back-in-my-head good. It was just ok. Kind of just tasted like bananas, sweetened condensed milk, graham crackers and cool whip. They didn't mesh. I am sure if I had made from-scratch whipped cream and made my own crust that it would have been much better. But I was wanting a mindless, sit down and flip through my magazine easy kind of recipe. I guess that's just unrealistic.
This wasn't BAD, just disappointing... again makes me think I did something wrong. I do see a pattern developing in my bad category.
This rendered me speechless. I can't decide if I am in love or horrified.
