You forgot the sauce and messed up my dinner!, October 31, 2004 - 12:41 AM
Reviewer: Sammy Sauceless from Anywhere, California
I printed the recipe, bought the ingredients and made the recipe. At the very end of the directions, just as I was almost done, I noticed the words "add the sauce." Sauce? What sauce? There's no sauce listed in the ingredients. Oh well. So we plowed forward and served it. Tasted dry. Something was missing. Guess what? Yep. The sauce! I guess we'll get some spaghtetti sauce and hope that spruces it up tomorrow. Meanwhile, please DO NOT post a recipe unless you're willing to take the time to carefully check that you've got it right! Seriously! I find this an ongoing problem with recipes on the internet. Note: I think this recipe can be salvaged with some sauce. I'll guess the quantity. Thank goodness I'm not living in a remote village in Alaska where you can't get to the store to find the ingredients that the recipe provider forgot to tell you to pick up!

1/4 Parsely?, October 31, 2004 - 12:45 AM
Reviewer: Sammy Sauceless from Anywhere, California
One more thing. The recipe calls for 1/4 parsley. 1/4 of what? Is that a 1/4 tablespoon? 1/4 cup? 1/4 of a pound? Or should I load my pickup with 1/4 ton of parsley? Sure, I can guess what it meant. But why not be more careful?

Damn good, after corrections!, November 14, 2004 - 02:53 AM
Reviewer: Sammy No-Longer-Sauceless from Sometown in California
This is Sammy Sauceless, I was pissed when I made this recipe because a key ingredient was missing sauce! I have since edited the ingredients list. A day after my culinary disaster, I obtained the correct ingredients and repaired the dish. It came out excellent. I highly recommend this recipe and will make it again. Good stuff and very forgiving. Still, the person who posted this recipe with the missing ingredients deserves to be bitch slapped. After that, we can all sit down and enjoy this recipe. Peace!
