I have trained a neural net on a crowdsourced set of vintage jello-centric recipes

I believe this to possibly be the worst recipe-generating algorithm in existence FAIR AND MOOSE<br />
<br />
 Ingredients <br />
3 cans (8 1/2 oz) crabmeat, drained and cut in half quarters <br />
1 1/2 green beans, chopped <br />
1 tablespoon grated onion <br />
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed Cheddar cheese soup <br />
<span class=1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons mustard
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
3/4 cup lettuce leaves
1/2 large cucumber, quartered
1 3/4 oz pkgs green jello, drained " src="/images/1px.png" data-src="">
When the AI produces recipes like this I feel a mixture of pride and relief.

Then I realize how very very low my standards have fallen.

At least it remembered to pit the peas. Jellied Vegetable Salad<br />
<br />
2 tbs. unflavored gelatin<br />
½ cup cold water<br />
1 cup boiling water<br />
1 cup boiling water and sugar<br />
1 cup diced, shredded cabbage<br />
1 cup finely shredded beetroot<br />
1 cup finely shredded carrots<br />
1 cup finely shredded cabbage<br />
1 cup pitted cooked peas<br />
<br />
Sprinkle gelatin over boiling water in blender container. Add cold water and sugar. Process at low speed until gelatin is clear. Add vegetables, Process at
One thing the neural net has learned from humans is that it's good to include a story with your recipe.

It is bad at this. The White Savory Curry will satisfy whippersnappers, carnivores, and even a pet rabbit. It's easy to make, warm, and satisfying for everyone. <br />
For me, it's the best normal dish for getting screwdrivers out of your food. <br />

Yield: To fit a chipmunk; 3-4 servings.<br />
Ingredients:<br />
1 (2 lb) pkg bacon grease<br />
2 (2 oz) cans red meat broth, drained<br />

2 cups sour cream

People ask why the neural net generates stuff that wasn't in the recipe dataset. It's because although I finetuned it on recipes, GPT-2 was originally trained on a broad dataset of internet text.

It still remembers how to make Pokemon, and will do so occasionally, unprompted. [Fluff]<br />

Today's AI is much closer in brainpower to an earthworm than to a human. It can pattern-match but doesn't understand what it's doing.

This is its attempt to blend in with human recipes Stuffed Heart<br />
Ingredients: Heart, Skin, Bones, Shell, Toasted Olive, Marinade.<br />
<br />
Directions: Remove the heart from the stomach, and place it on a board. Cut out the heart's most prominent features, leaving the cavity in the flesh. Worry about the bones and the jelly. Cook the heart in a fire, and put into a jelly-filled shell. Dissolve the Marinade in 1 cup boiling water, add, if needed, the heart and bones.
