Food magazines test a lot of recipes. Like tons. They adjust measurements, ingredients and cooking times until they're pretty close to perfect. But have you ever made a recipe from a magazine that just didn't turn out like you'd hoped? I'm sure this has happened to even the most experienced home cooks.
But I have another question for you. Did you know there's a blog that's committed almost solely to putting magazine recipes to the test? If not, you should. It's called The Bitten Word and is run by two very witty and talented home cooks, Zach and Clay. They've tested many of our recipes before, the most recent being our Grilled Salmon with Walnut-Arugula Pesto. Don't worry, they liked it!
That being said, they've called us out when they think we're going a little too "foodie." I think you'd love to see their quite hilarious response to our Deep-Fried Bacon and Eggs with Lemon-Egg Vinaigrette. The great part about The Bitten Word is that these guys cover everything from equipment needed to how things actually go in the kitchen, as opposed to how they should have gone based on the recipe's directions.
Check out this unique blog today. You'll never have to question one of your magazine recipes again.
