Typically, I make one pretty plate which I affectionately call the "picture plate" and all the pictures that go on my website - typically come from that single plate. It's become a nightly competition to see who will get the prized picture plate for dinner.
I pulled a recipe off of Pinterest for the CUTEST ham and cheese puffs and lets just say - MY puffs were less than Pinterest worthy. (Like most of my Pinterest recipes really --- tasty but not really picture worthy.)
But like I said earlier - my family isn't accustomed to pretty food - they just want delicious food. Because of that - these puffs were a huge hit. Not too pretty but SUPER yummy. My family raved about how good they tasted and their weird appearance didn't stop me from posting them on my blog either. They were so delicious that I couldn't bring myself to eliminate the recipe just because of how they looked so please excuse the pictures and trust me when I tell you - they tasted better than they looked.
