Flip Flop

Food Network, Talk Shows, Facebook, Pinterest etc.  tempt us all day long with scrumptious food. 

They show us dishes that look sooooo easy to make but are they really?  How many times have you tried to mimic a recipe from social media just to have a total flop, waste of time, ingredients and now your starving.

Here I am going to test how easy the recipes are to make? 
Are chef skills required?
Specialty store for ingredients required?
Special tools required?
I'll let you know if it's a Flop or a Flip

If there is a recipe you've been dying to try but were afraid of going hungry if it failed, maybe a recipe you would like gluten free.  Ask me to add it to my list of to try!

According to the Today Show making these recipes will in turn make me overweight. 
In interest of maintaining my girlish figure I'm going to pace myself
 

Tried:
Eat Well Cauliflower Tots
Tots by Skinny Tastes
Flip, love them
easy after all the social media hoopla
I had to try them.
I didn't like any of the recipes I saw soooo...
I combined a couple and they came out awesome!!!
 
My version Cauliflower Tots

Flip Crockpot Beef & Broccoli

Definitely a flip
no changes needed
but very flexible if you want to change it up






Rachael Ray's Carbonara Pasta
Flip Carbonara Pasta
Definitely A Keeper
Flop Anne Burrells Carbonara
I flopped it really bad I'm sure someone with more Chef skills wouldn't flop.  Rachael Rays worked so easily and the risk of flopping it is so slim I'm sticking with Rachael's version.
