    Default Article: 5 Star Recipes that Fail.. Why it might not be your fault!

    It's safe to say that we've all tried a recipe (or two) that came highly recommended, but turned out to be a complete FLOP when we tried it in our kitchen. Here are several things that you might not have known before you prepared that recipe, dooming you before you even began . . .

    I have weighed my flours and sugars for over 30 years.
    btw in grandmothers recipes the milk had a lot of cream in it
    so use half and half to replace the milk called for.

    Thank you so much for this article.. I would have never thought that the flour used would be part of the problem. I also was very surprised by the tip to use the same set of measuring cups.. I was curious can we still make some of the older recipes since some of the ingredients asked for are hard to find.. Is there a dictionary to relate those ingredients to what is sold in stores today?

    This makes a lot of sense! My Mother was a great cook and she rarely measured, she always went be the texture or feel of the mixture. I was always amazed at how she did that, now I understand.
