For many, "fast and easy" are the most important criteria in recipes. Lengthy and difficult are deal breakers. Nancy's cooking-phobic friend wails "Who would waste that much time when ten minutes later it's gonna be gone?"
Well, me, actually.
I'm always browsing around for something that looks to be a fun day or more in the kitchen.. But when I do, I want a result for all that effort that's better than just okay.
Recently, both Nancy and I spent multiple hours on complex cooking projects that turned out fine. They were good. But not all that good for the amount of work we put in. Especially when we think of the fast easy stuff we've made that actually turned out better results.
