The holidays are upon us and whether or not you can host your family or just yourself, you want to make the meals somewhat special. With all the Covid-19 quarantine doldrums, something different might be just the thing. Recently, I found a Poblano casserole recipe that looked very inviting and decided to give it a try. It didn't require blackening the chili skins, just a 3 minute soak in boiling water. Then piling on shredded cheese and pouring beaten egg and milk over the top and baking. What a disappointment! It's not the first time I've searched online and found an interesting recipe. This casserole, however, was not as bad as the 3 ingredient peanut butter cookie. What a waste of ingredients, energy heating the oven and my time. I think we are all drawn to the attractive pictures on the internet and expect that they should deliver. It's also easier to browse than search through a bookshelf of cookbooks.
