Lately I have been seeing a lot about a two-ingredient lemon bar concept. Reading numerous comments regarding the challenges of making the bars, the confusion surrounding the recipe, and the reviews of the taste of the product, had me wondering. The thought that this would work seemed kind of crazy to me, so I decided to challenge the idea in the What’s Cooking test kitchen. Well, I have concluded my own study and am here to share it with you.
With only two ingredient how can you go wrong? I mean seriously? My thought is that many people simply do not follow instructions. One of the first rules of cooking that I was taught, is when using a recipe, read through the entire recipe from beginning to end before starting. It is very important to make sure you understand what it is you are trying to accomplish.
Also many of us have preconceived notions of what a dish should taste like based on past experiences. If you are trying a different recipe for a potato salad, remember that it might taste different that the one your mother used to make. No one said it would taste the same as Mom’s.
