When you read a recipe, what makes you trust it enough to try it?

Hm....the list of ingredients is usually that draws me, if they are all things that I like or think will go well together.

You are lucky, I run into recipes EVERY DAY that don't use everything they call for, or did not tell you what step 2 was.

If I have the stuff for the recipe already or if I dont have to buy a lot of stuff, then I will probably give it a try (if it sounds good of course). If there are things missing from the directions then I wont try it.


If there are a lot of complicated steps, then i wont try it. Maybe its a bit of laziness, but Im not the best cook, and I guess I dont trust myself enough for a big complicated recipe. If the author uses simple terms, thats a big draw for me. I do like extra explainations that sometimes are included in a recipe. That helps me often in the future.

I agree about lots of setps, or complicated steps.

My mom never had recipes either, she just "dumped".
