“The secret ingredient is love…and butter”

“The secret ingredient is love” (or “The secret ingredient is always love”) is a cooking saying that has been printed on many images. “The secret ingredient is (always) love…and butter” has also been printed on many images.
 
“Really good cooking, the kind that nourishes as well as fills, requires a secret ingredient—love” was printed in the Longview (TX) Daily News on June 25, 1954. On the animated television series The Simpsons, the episode “Flaming Moe’s” that originally aired on November 21, 1991, Professor John Fink said, “Brace yourselves, gentlemen.  According to the gas chromatograph, the secret ingredient is…  Love!?  Who’s been screwing with this thing!” “Making pork chops. The secret ingredient - is love. No, actually, it’s pepper. Lots of pepper” was posted on X/Twitter by Roseburg MacGuy on May 9, 2007.
 
“BTW, it doesn’t matter which dish you are doing, the secret ingredient is always love” was posted on the newsgroup rec.games.computer.ultima.dragons on November 4, 2003. “Just love, the secret ingredient is always love” was posted on X/Twitter by Becky L. on April 7, 2009. “The secret ingredient is always love” was posted on X/Twitter by Milagro Cantinas on January 27, 2011. “culinary challenged- lol! gotta tell you- the secret ingredient is always love- put some and the meal will be great & simple” was posted on X/Twitter by Precise Portions on November 8, 2011.
 
“Just finished reading a cookbook. Spoiler Alert: The secret ingredient is love. That and butter. Lots and lots of butter” was posted on X/Twitter by Stephen (call me Mister) EπŸ₯ΆπŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰ on May 3, 2022. “Love. The secret ingredient is love. And butter” was posted on X/Twitter by Coach Feeback 🏈 on June 21, 2022. “The Secret Ingredient Is Always Love and Butter” (on a sign) was posted on X/Twitter by Maha jobs on November 3, 2022. “The secret ingredient is love…and butter πŸ‘” was posted on X/Twitter by DatGoobzilla on January 2, 2023.

25 June 1954, Longview (TX) Daily News, “Who Is Best Cook Hotly Debated Between Sees” by Gay Pauley (United Press), pg. 8, col. 6:
To which Miss (Marguerite—ed.) Piazza answers—“Really good cooking, the kind that nourishes as well as fills, requires a secret ingredient—love. Woman’s cooking for her family is done with love and solicitude.”
 
Wikipedia: Flaming Moe’s
“Flaming Moe’s” is the tenth episode of the third season of the American animated television series The Simpsons. It first aired on the Fox network in the United States on November 21, 1991. In the episode, Homer tells Moe Szyslak about the Flaming Homer, an alcoholic cocktail of cough medicine and fire that he invented. Moe steals Homer’s recipe, renames it the Flaming Moe and sells it at his tavern. The drink is wildly successful and boosts Moe’s business, but Homer is angry at him for his betrayal and seeks revenge.

To be honest, what makes a chief great is not the receipe (it’s only a small part of it), but the execution. So if it doesn’t turn out okay, while it may be Arcana’s recipe’s portion is wrong, but it also could mean you have no talent. Ouch! BTW, it doesn’t matter which dish you are doing, the secret ingredient is always love.
