Recipe Fails of 2015 comin’ through!
By some magic eclipse of time, it’s the last post of 2015! And what better way to ring in the good vibes for 2016 than by re-living the gloppy, sad-looking, mostly green messes of the last 12 months" Right" I thought so, too.
There is usually a theme to be found within my recipe fails, and this year is no different. I’m declaring the theme of 2015 to be GREEN GONE WRONG. Yes – all things green were the recipe fail specialty this year, probably as a result of my obsession with the *delicious* green recipes of the year, like the Magic Green Sauce, the Jalapeño Cilantro Dressing, the Kale Pesto, and beyond.

So grab a coffee or a tea or a leftover Christmas cookie (please tell me you have the ones where the two Ritz crackers are spread with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate and sprinkles" no"! is this a tacky Midwest thing") and pull up a chair. I mean, seriously – get comfortable. At this point, you might as well just be sitting in my house on a pile of my laundry examining all the little tufts of stray dog hair around our baseboard. That’s just how much we’re about to be up in each others’ business.
To warm us up, let’s take a peek at the fails that happened in a few other categories of life before hitting up the recipes. Just to get in the spirit, you know"

I could try to convince you that that was actually a delicious meal or I could laugh until I cry at everything about this photo.
…those tacos WERE really good, though.
Another 2015 personal fail in the fashion category would be one of a wearing-a-cape-as-a-shirt variety.
I made my grand entrance and Bjork said: “Oh! …you’re wearing your cape today.”
Yes, dear one. THAT is how good I...
