I am an avid cook and baker. I enjoy it and find it quite relaxing. I’m not big on measuring, but I am very big on experimenting. I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to recipes I want to try. If, after I actually try them, we want to make it again, it gets moved to “Favourite Recipes” along with all my tried-and-true favourites.
I’m most often a do-it-from-scratch-or-don’t-bother, kind of girl, but I can appreciate that when you don’t have time, you reach for a box.
So today, I was sitting at my computer with my fresh cuppa joe, looking through my “recipes to try” board when the Cheesy Potato Soup in a bread bowl caught my eye: YUM!
Potato soup has to be my favourite…hurray!
It’s pretty chilly here today and even I, the polar bear, am wearing a sweater. Perfect soup weather. I even have potatoes in the house (which is unusual) …hurray!
Nope. Not hurray.
This isn’t a recipe it’s a sham! I am so sick of people combining processed, packaged foods and calling it their own recipe. Where is your originality. Hell, where is your PRIDE?!
Seriously? How can you call it a soup recipe and then direct me to open THREE cans of Campbell’s cream soups, throw in a bag of frozen hash browns, some cream, some salt and pepper and some cheese and call it your own recipe??????
Seriously! That’s not a recipe, that’s a shopping trip!
Then I noticed the hot links provided for “cream of chicken soup” and “cream of celery soup”. I thought, oh good, redemption. She’s just using canned soup for the quick solution, but she actually has a recipe….
Uh…nope. Nope, just a link to her blog tags. Okay, that in itself was
But my truly favourite part was that the so-called “recipe” called for you to dump everything into your crock pot and let it cook for a few hours… WTF?
Are you kidding?
For canned soup!?!
Shit, talk about fooling yourself.
