What I Did: In search of a healthier diet I’m trying LCHF, these were supposed to be a substitute for bread, made with meringue, egg yolks and cream cheese. Psyllium husk was optional, so I left it out as I didn’t have any, perhaps that’s the key to not wasting 3 eggs and half a pack of cream cheese?

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Try adding psyllium husk, it was a bit thin…

What I Did: We just used can frosting, did no specify what to use. Well the frosting was not the right consistency and was just melting, once we put the “bunny ears” on, it all went down hill…. literally.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I will use different frosting and use smaller ears.

What I Did: My son is having a friend over tomorrow for a play date. I excitedly told the other mom, OH, I will make them some Kool-Aid playdough! I am an experienced baker and the recipe seemed super simple. I followed it exactly. It was total sticky mush, something I needed 5 minutes to wash off my hands! No way am I letting my 2 year old near this! Where all the people praising it in the reviews lying? Lol, maybe :)

My Result:

Next Time I Will: The only possible explanation I can see is that I’m in Mexico. Drinks here are often much sweeter than in America. Maybe the Kool-Aid mixture has much more sugar, or some other ingredient that made things go wrong? Nothing I can do about it now, though!
