Every once in a while I'll try a recipe that sounded good on paper, only to find out it was awful. Other times, I will be suspicious of some of the ingredients and/or quantities of them, but soldier on with the recipe anyhow and have some faith that it will come out all good in the end, only to realize I should have trusted my instincts, lol. One that immediately comes to mind was a recipe by Ina Garten for roasted vegetables with orzo. Your supposed to toss it all in this homemade vinaigrette that is also included in the recipe. I just remember two things in particular about making this, it made way too much - I had to put part of it in second bowl. And the other thing I remember about it was that I took a bite of it, and it tasted like vomit. Literally, taste and texture. You know that gross sour taste when you start to throw up a little, that stuff. Any recipes you've tried out that were real stinkers?
