Food & Wine (April 2009)
When selecting recipes from food magazines, there's never any guarantee that they're going to be good. Sure, food mags have test kitchens and recipes have (we hope) been tested multiple times before being published.
But even when following recipes to the letter, there can be problems. Sometimes the cooking time may be off. Or there might not be much flavor. But sometimes you find a real treasure of a recipe -- something that really wows you and makes you want to return to it again and again.
So it's a gamble.
And when you choose something called "Carrot Macaroni and Cheese," it's an especially big gamble. I mean, when's the last time you heard of Carrot Mac and Cheese?
Would it be a hit or a miss?
