How do we know which is the best recipe?

With all these recipes that we come across every time we type in what we’re looking for, I doubt it if we really know which one is the best one. I guess it makes a difference and depends on the mood we’re in, the time we have on our hands and the state of our appetite.

Bad news is that unfortunately not all recipes work, boooo!

I know! :/

Even worse is that they can leave us disappointed and demotivated if the dish doesn’t turn out right, believing that it was our fault or we’re not capable enough to cook!!

Recently we came across a chicken recipe online where it said that chicken needs  to be roasted for 2 1/2 hours. We naturally think that if you follow this kind of recipe, you won’t be able to find the chicken in the oven after that amount of cooking time!!

This is what brought this blog to come alive. Be really careful which recipes to go for. Look out for reviews at least so there’s proof it does work.

Also, seems like the recipe trend nowadays are these fast-forwarded, short clips which seem to be an excellent way to attract the eye and make us believe that that recipe is the perfect one for us. Don’t take me wrong, I have nothing against these commercial video clips but to my eyes they’re not real. They just show me massively edited parts of the whole process plus a rapid subtitled cooking time. Also, I still need to pause the clip all the time to write down ingredients and follow method, nah not for me!

So, would I really believe that these kind of recipes work?

A tried and tested recipe with real time and real home environment is what robandjas are all about. It can be really tricky to watch a whole 10-15 minute video recipe, however to my opinion; you are guaranteed a recipe that works and nothing beats authenticity if you really want to eat a good plate of food.

What do you think? How do you choose a recipe? Does it always work? Leave us comments on our facebook page, we’ll be very happy to hear your views.

  1. Hmm, I just cooked a chicken on Sunday past and left it in the oven for 3 hours. I like my food well cooked and it definitely wasn’t charred. I know sometimes, I tend to overcook. You won’t get undercooked beef or pink lamb in this house. I know that one restaurant I went to was disgusted that I sent the lamb back because it was pink. It may be uncultured but I prefer my food well cooked. But how do you know which is the best recipe? I like what you said about fresh vegetables and any recipe that uses less processed food is likely to be one I will try.
