Just under the wire Jan

Oh hey! I’m terrible at suspense/lazy at the end of the day on a Tues, so here’s the TL;DR on Jan: I just barely made my 4 recipe goal.

Between the previously mentioned time crunch and a very stubborn cold, it was a squuuuueeeeaaker.

I know all 2-3 of us are here for terrible food pics and boring recipe talk, so here’s the rundown on January’s premier recipe:

Recipe 1: Bon Appetit’s Healthy-ish Cauliflower Bolognese

Before:

After (there is a filter doing some serious work here):

This one drove home exactly how rusty I am. I had to assemble my food processor. It was touch and go.

Pro tip: Plug it in! Jokes, it was a different issue, but there’s a clue here…

To be honest, and I hope I can be, this recipe did not impress. I didn’t brown the onions as much as I should have and probably over chopped both the cauliflower and the mushrooms. I have high expectations of anything bearing the name “bolognese” and it tasted a bit bitter and like a waste of a lovely box rigatoni.

That said, after sitting in the fridge for 3 days, it improved significantly.

Cooky thing rating: 2 out of 5 cookies (3 out of 5 after fridge-aging)

deliciousness to kitchen chaos ratio: 1:3 Not ideal.
