When I read food blogs (yes, I read sometimes, I am not always only eating pounds of homemade food) (ok, I must admit, I also eat while reading) (no one is perfect!)
So, as I was saying, when I read a food blog it’s to get new ideas (sometimes), to be tempted (always) and to steal some recipes to modify them because I don’t have all they need or because the balance between the ingredients sounds weird to me. (And yes, I am aware that it might be the problem, sometimes! :))
Anyway, I have noticed that you can find two sorts of people posting recipe: the “honest” kind who are not ashamed, sometimes, to explain you how they failed the first 19 attempts and the “first shot, great shot” kind, the one who never failed any recipe. That second category that makes you feel like a little goose when you completely screw up fail a little bit your recipe.
Since it happens to me quite often, and because I am not the type of person who wants to hide this fact (all my friends all remember my famous “tiramisoup”) I felt like showing my latest catastrophe. I tried to reproduce the best cookie ever (oh, yeah), the “chocolate-peanut butter cookie” from Levain, which I told you about here. Let’s be honest, the taste was quite good (but with chocolate and peanut butter in it, that’s pretty obvious) but I think I might say there is a tiny little problem with the shape. As well as the color. What do you think?
