Better wait a few days before trying the Chron recipes (cont'd)
The Chronicle corrections page (which frequently declines to correct factual errors like this one) is usually pretty good about correcting errors on previously published recipes (doh!), which occur with such regularity that we recommend waiting at least a week before trying any recipe published in the newspaper. Here is the latest correction, from the 3 September 2009 edition:
A recipe for pesto on Page B6 Wednesday left out an ingredient. For the complete recipe, see Page B8 today in the Letters column.
Surely most Chron readers already look to the letters column several days later to see why the recipe they pulled from the Chronicle wasn't a big hit. *eyeroll*
Or not. As a friendly Public Service Announcement to all, we would suggest once more that it's a really good idea to wait at least a week -- and to check the corrections section during that time -- before trying any recipes published in the Houston Chronicle.
