Using Other People’s Recipes
Recently, I’ve been trying a bunch of new recipes by other people. The first one was French Onion Soup. For some reason, when I was shopping, I had sherry stuck in my head for this soup, instead of the vermouth that it calls for. So, I came home with sherry. I also used three types of onions. If I had to do it over, and I will, I would leave out the sweet onions and try it with vermouth. It was really sweet. Really good, but a bit too sweet for me. It was awesome with baguette and gruyere melted on top though.
I used to try all new recipes exactly as written and then adjust it the next time I made it. What I found out was that I didn’t actually re-make anything if I didn’t like it the first time. So, I try to make changes the first time if I think it will suit my tastes better.
Like these Teriyaki Meatballs by Budget Bytes. Don’t get me wrong, these look amazing as written, I just didn’t have green onions. So, I shredded some red onion instead. It was awesome and I think I’ll keep it. The Teriyaki Sauce recipe is an awesome recipe to have. I don’t think I will ever buy it again, this was so easy!
I also found this Healthy Living EBook Collection, many of which I’ve been thinking about buying anyways. Now, I got a great deal! I expect all the recipes in these books will be keeping my busy for a while. That and Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
