Over the top “Foodie” Recipes are SO 2010…

Archived: July, 2011

I’m over Epicurious. There I said it. I am so tired of looking up a recipe for something simple, only to realize I would need to go spend $30 at the store to make it. Super fancy pants recipes are great if you are one of the following:

  • independently wealthy
  • bored
  • trying to impress food snobs
  • Hipster

For the rest of us, it doesn’t make sense. I can’t afford to buy obscure ingredients I’m only going to use once. Like the potato starch I went to 4 stores to find, that I never used again, and that went into a cake that no one ate because at this event I had a bunch of “I don’t like fruit desserts” jerks. (Not that I’m bitter or anything.) Nor do I have the time to go to the store every time I feel like cooking. I love the food that these recipes make, but unless I’m preparing something for a special occasion, my time is too precious to spend hours on a single meal.

So without Epicurious my choices are limited if I want to find recipes that don’t include condensed cream of mushroom soup. Because of this, I’ve been making up more of my own recipes, which as been really fun. Hopefully with my new snazzy iphone app that allows me to post on here really easily I can share some of them with you. Maybe my reward for studying all week will be to post a new recipe here. Ohhh, I like this idea….
