Ever since I began to use AllRecipes, it has really bothered me that people will make several changes to the recipe and then give the results a bad review. If somebody gives me directions to their house and I decide to make a left hand turn instead of
a right hand turn, I don't complain because I couldn't find their house. These reviews of recipes these people have never made drive me crazy, but I decided to hold my tongue - until now.
Today I was looking for some variations on a very simple sauce. I usually look at recipes in order of their rating. One in particular caught my eye because it was very basic and I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. I read a few of the reviews but one
caught my eye because it was a one-star rating in a sea of 5 star reviews. I couldn't believe what I saw. This recipe has three basic ingredients. Every variation of this sauce has the same three basic ingredients with perhaps two or three others to change
the flavor slightly. This woman genius states she totally left out one of the three, cut another of the three in half, and then said it tasted terrible! What? That's like saying I made gravy according to my mom's recipe, but I didn't have any flour and
I cut the fat in half. HOW IN THE WORLD
COULD YOUR SAUCE TASTE GOOD?!?!
If you don't make the recipe, please don't write a review. You make yourself look like a fool and all you're doing is taking up space on this website.
