Okay, I admit, I came across several Tasty recipes on my Facebook feed and made them when I was in a pinch for dinner. Sometimes they do post pretty delicious looking stuff.
But that was a while ago.
Now it seems like dozens of Tasty copycats are vying for our short-lived attention spans on our feeds by promising us that any dish can be fixed if there’s enough cheese involved. We have Nifty, Cooking Panda, Thrillist, and more looking at different ways to win our hearts and stomachs by reinventing classic recipes to make them “hip” and “fun” while, instead, they look like a trip to the ER for gastrointestinal issues.
So, this is CT Boom’s official plea to all those recipe videos clogging our Facebook feed to STOP. Chill out. It was fun while it lasted but the basin of ideas has clearly run dry. There’s only so many ways to make upside down pineapple cake.
Think we’re being too mean? Take a gander at these five creations that made our stomachs spin faster than Simone Biles coming off the Olympic vault and then tell us what you think!
