See that Tres Leches Cake above? I was curious about Tres Leches for a long time. The concept of a cake soaked in three milks and iced in whipped cream? Hello! Sign me up for that! I used the recipe from Pioneer Woman's site and made this cake for our Mexican-Inspired Thanksgiving. PW's recipe worked great and the cake went together just fine. The end result was a big surprise to me.
The overall recipe was fine, but it was just a miss for us. We ate it, but didn't love it. We found the cake to be light, which was nice, but a little too on the mild side. I'm sure this recipe would be great for some, just not us. Tres Leches Cake has been a recipe on my to-do list for a long time now and I'm happy to say that I've made one. It really doesn't hurt my feelings, or my thighs for that matter, that I didn't love it. More room for other desserts, right?
Another miss were these Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins from Everyday Food. If you've read my blog for the past few months then you know that I love my Everyday Food magazine. All of their recipes have been big hits in my house, but surprisingly these Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins just fell flat. The muffins were lacking in pumpkin flavor and were surprisingly dry, even though they contained buttermilk, which almost always ensures a moist baked good. I very rarely make things and toss them, but I tossed these. They just weren't worth the calories. I still love you Everyday Food!

Yum - Jeffrey's Roast Chicken with that beautiful sauce and cheesy potato risotto! Hit! Hit! Hit!
here. This one was really neither a hit or miss, just kinda crazy.
Some hits and some misses. It may sound strange, but I do enjoy an occasional miss here and there. It's never really a bad thing when you learn what you like, as well as what you don't like.
