Sometimes when you're trying new things, they don't work out. (See also listening to friends' musical suggestions, trying out new restaurants, viewing documentaries you've never heard of...)
Here are a couple monumental recipe failures from the last week or two...
Beans with Pesto Bulgur
YECCCHHH! I was able to get two bites of this down before I realized I had made a horrible, horrible mistake! (Yes, you have to take the second bite to make sure you didn't somehow process it wrong.)
Couscous with Dried Fruit, Butternut Squash and Turmeric
Woah! I can't describe to you how much of a disappointment this one was.
