The season's best does not necessarily a good meal make

Inspired by all of the springtime recipes I have been seeing around the Internets, I decided to splurge on some fiddlehead ferns and ramps for dinner last night. I researched preparations for each very dutifully, and came up with a pasta that sounded absolutely perfect. And lo and behold, I had exceedingly boring dinner that allowed neither ingredient to shine.

So, SE'ers, do you have any seasonal failures you would care to share?
