I gripe a lot about recipes that fall apart and don't look pretty. When I make a mess of french toast, or crepes, or some kind of complicated dessert, I tend to care more than I should about the way the whole thing looks. Sure, it may taste great, but what good is that if I can't take a pretty picture of it?
I realize this is ridiculous. And I realized it even more when earlier this week I made a pot pie for dinner that looked AWESOME and tasted, well, kind of blah.
I wanted to love this pie. Really. It browned up so nicely and it cut easily into pretty, rustic looking slices. It just didn't taste that great. The filling reminded me of something from a frozen dinner or a lacklustre high school cafeteria meal. So I will not post the recipe here, because I like you people and I don't want to convince you to make something not great.
But please enjoy these lovely photos.
