As part of my goal of dining in this month, I tried a new recipe for mushroom barley soup. While the finished product looked alright, the soup was just ok… It was missing something – I’m not sure what, but it just didn’t have as much flavor as I had hoped. Therefore, I will not be sharing the recipe at this time. 😀 On a positive note, it got me back into the kitchen (for something other than baking!) and it was a good effort towards some veggie-friendly and home-cooked meals. I’m hoping that the leftover soup will take on more flavor and taste better the next day. Generally, I always find that soups and chili taste better the next day. Fingers crossed!
I will continue to try some new recipes over the next month, in addition to cooking some tried and true recipes and meals. I have a number of cookbooks (which I love), but it can get a little overwhelming trying to comb through all of the different recipes. I need to figure out a better system of remembering recipes I want to try from the different cookbooks.
Do you have any recipes that sounded great but ended up being a bust?
