Do you have a lot of recipes that you no longer use because you feel they take too long to prepare or contain too many ingredients?
I actually have felt the same about some of my recipes. Stop and think about when you last used that recipe and what was going on at the time. For example; when I was in 4-H, I had to make an angel food cake. At the time, we met every week and most often had to make the item we were required to exhibit that year.
