Have you ever thought that the recipes with a gazillion ingredients must be good but they look incredibly complicated? And regardless as to how good they look, you avoided them at all costs? Guilty as charged.
Well, over the years I’ve concluded that simple recipes with simple ingredients can be just as tasty, if not tastier (wink-wink). For example, remember the Slow Cooker Creamed Corn recipe? Or how about the Rice Cooker Rice Pilaf? Both are easy to make and incredibly delicious dishes. I call that winning, friends.
