Do recipes that have a lot if ingredients "scare" You?
How many ingredients is too many for you?.

I tend to stay away from recipes with lots of ingredients especially if they aren't ingredients i use a lot. If i have to buy bottles.of.sauces or seasoning i don't like it

It depends. If its a lot of items that I keep around for other recipes then I will try it. But if its tons of things I don't use I pass.

During the week, I don't want to mess around for a long time cooking supper. I like things that are quick, easy, and have few ingredients. Usually we squeeze in supper after work/school and before someone's ball game.

Weekends are my cooking time. If we are home, that's when I pull out the things that take longer to make or things that have more ingredients. They don't "scare" me. I just don't want to mess around with it during the week.

They don't scare me I actually like those type of recipes but as of lately I try to avoid them simply because of cost unless of couse all the items are things I already have.

That's my biggest issue. My grocery budget is very very small so unless.its stuff i use already each additional item adds up.
