this is the only picture i took. chocolate banana baklava cupcakes. sounds great right? and they don’t look half bad. but trust me when i say they were a spectacular failure. the brownie in the middle tasted wrong (even though on their own they were way yummy) and the honey was over the top, and the banana? where’s the banana? ugh the whole thing was just one big mess. i couldn’t let these represent me. in the trash they went. all 50 of them.
ugh..i don’t know what happened. these brownies came out a cakey spongy mess. They weren’t even sweet. just complete rubbish. i trashed them right away. they were still hot.
justlikemissamerica asked: I'm sorry your sprouts turned out badly! But next time if you ever do work up the courage to try them again, you really should cut them in half. Once cut, the insides will cook at the same rate as the outsides and you cant avoid that horrible sulfur-y smell/taste that comes from cooking them too long. I'm saying 9 minutes max if you cook the bacon separately and then add in the flash steamed/dried off sprouts back in to caramelize. But they are really pungent, no getting around that I guess :)
thanks for the tip, you had me till the end. lol.
I followed the lovely recipe here. I’ve never had brussel sprouts in my life. So I decided to give them a shot. I mean anything cooked in garlic and olive oil can’t be bad. Plus my friend suggested to toss them with bacon and I was like “Sure! Why not?!” Boy this is gonna be good. Right? WRONG!
Lets take a journey from the fridge to the trash shall we?
These veggies just have a strong pungent taste thats pretty gnarly. If someone wants to make me their version of brussel sprouts and prove to me they really are good i say go ahead. But I don’t feel the need to ever make these again.
I realize i forgot to cut them in half but i really doubt that would have changed the taste.
vanilla cupcakes with matcha green tea frosting. these were crap. they ended up in the trash.
