Failed dinner

I tried to make lemony rice with spiced cod over the top last night and despite following Martha's recipe did not come out very well.  The rice was pretty good but had a little to much lemon(I added to much).  The cod on the other hand was not as successful.  I did not dry the fish before putting the rub on..duh..but the spice mix was not my favorite.  It seemed kinda flat.  I am finding out that Martha's recipes need some adjustments.  Hopefully tonight will be better.  We are having BLTAs and then heading next door for a T-shirt themed birthday party.  I made some earrings, leg warmers, wine bottle cover and plan to make arm gauntlets and bun(hair) covers today.  Super excited!!


  1. I challenge you to make a meal with as many of the seasonal ingredients listed below! I'll do it, too! Can't wait to see what you make!

  2. yeah, i always add more salt to martha's recipes! she is skimpy with it, and that's the one thing they teach you in cooking school: salting. if you add the right amount while cooking, you actually end up using less and everything tastes sooo much better.

    i'm super excited you have a blog, too!
