Mini Crab Cake Sandwiches/58 1/2 Recipes Down

This comes from Just a Bunch of Recipes. I love a good crab cake sandwich and some cole slaw. I thought this recipe would be right up my alley, because I needed to make something to take over to a friend's house for an MMA fight. Unfortunately, the get-together got cancelled a few hours before it was due to start because the host wasn't feeling good.

What did I learn from this recipe?
Something is wrong with my taste buds. I don't know if they are changing or what, but these cakes were bland, just like the last recipe I made. It couldn't have been the recipe. It called for 1-2 tablespoons of Asian chili sauce. I didn't have that, so I substituted red Thai curry paste.

And though the cakes came out nicely moist, it was almost like a mouthful of nothing. If it weren't for the cole slaw, I'm not sure I would have known what I was eating. :(

My Big Fat Greek Avgolemono Soup/57 1/2 Recipes Down

Thanks to Awesome Recipes & Kitchen Shortcuts as inspiration, this is what we had for supper tonight. I had been eyeballing this recipe for sometime, and I had everything to make it tonight.

What did I learn from this recipe?
I followed Sam's directions to the "T" and you know what...I didn't like it. It was extremely bland. I can't help but wonder if that's how it's supposed to taste, or was there a mistake somewhere after all? I mean, it has a good amount of lemon juice in it. How could it be bland?

Anyway, I was disappointed in this recipe.
