Jeekinz, why do you get a watery mess if you mix them together and not if you cook them side by side in the same pan?

BTW, thanks for your sausage and peppers recipe!

Makes you wonder how much you can trust her recipes when she shows one thing and does another.
Gee, I've forgotten to put an ingredient in, forgotten quite a few times.

Trouble is a lot of the recipes aren't always written by the celebrity chefs but their staff, either from the inspiration of the chef or off their own back. That is often why you get the discrepancy. A while ago, some newspaper (somewhere in the world) tried cooking some of the celebrity recipes as they stood and they didn't work out at all! Think they may have taken that on board and get them tested before printing now.

Or I just haven't wanted to buy one small ingredient just to create a dish.

When I first moved out of home, I had no spices, only some basic ingredients and minimal cookware. I got invited to a friend's place so I thought I would take an Australian apple struedel - pretty cheap dish usually. Cost me over A$30 (several years ago) by the time I had bought the pan, the bowl the spices, etc!!LOL Would have been cheaper to have bought a tray of French patisserie cakes!

I hardly ever follow recipes exactly. I get the essence of it and put in what I want to put in. ;-)

I can't seem to use the spices fast enough before they go bland. The only ones I actually use fast enough is garlic powder and oregano, and maybe cumin seed.

Usually, the water in the veggies won't have enough room to escape so the water just stays in the pan. Like an over-crowding situation.

Add some evoo to coat the ingredientts, S & P and red pepper flakes to taste

I haven't finished them in 30 mins. either, but then I don't have a teleprompter in my kitchen telling me what to do next I also don't have my cutting board right next to the stove, so that may affect the time. The recipes I've tried have been good and fairly quick, though, maybe 45 mins.
