Time To Revisit

I have asked this question before. But we have so many new members, that I thought it bears being revisited.

What makes a recipe for you a "deal breaker." You look at it and decide to go on to something else.

For me it is:

Too many ingredients.

Two many complicated steps.

More than 24 hours of preparation.

Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"

Too many ingredients
Ingredients I don't like
Too complicated


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Ingredients too expensive. Ingredients I can't find easily.

Nothing with cups and cups of sugar.

Nothing that calls for exotic ingredients that I do not normally keep on hand.
