For me, a good recipe is one that; A) tastes great; B) looks cool when completed; and C) is easy to prepare. And I emphasize easy to prepare. Not that I can’t prepare things that require a little more forethought and effort, it’s just that I don’t always have that kind of patience and time. Some people do, though, and I envy them.
The following recipe fits my criteria for a “good recipe.” Throw in the fact that it’s seasonally appropriate and it’s pretty much perfect. By the way, my criteria for recipes is also a good test for choosing kid-friendly recipes. I realize that doesn’t say much for my culinary abilities, but I made my peace with that long ago.
