What I Did: Yesterday I attempted to make homemade fruit roll ups because the picture of them on Pinterest looked amazing. I followed the instructions, however the end result was no ooey gooey deliciousness. No, I ended up with a strawberry glass cutter, or a fruity shield that could stop a bullet. My son took a bite and said: “thanks mom for the yummy fruit CRACKERS.” Sigh…

My Result:

Next Time I Will:† I think it could be saved- it still tasted good! The recipe said to cook the fruit mixture for 7-9 hours. I would cut the cooking time down and see if that helps!

What I Did: My Husband has been bugging me to make him a pumpkin pie for a year! So I thought I would make him 24 mini pies! It looked cute and I knew he would love it! The only thing I changed was instead of a pumpkin cookie cutters I did a round! They turned out great! I was so happy! And so was my husband!

My Result:

Next Time I Will:† I forgot to add vanilla but it tasted just fine! :) Wouldn’t change a thing!

What I Did: My son’s room mom chose this and the Cracker Spider to be made for their class Halloween party. Due to miscommunications, we made samples right before the party. Hence the fruit roll-up wrapped phallic turd and the cracker with the black things.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Pick a different project. The spiders are just lame.

What I Did: They didn’t all turn out badly, but man…my first “mummy dog” was a doozie. I made these for my daughter’s preschool Halloween party. It’s a good thing I don’t derive all of my self esteem from the success of my projects.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: There is no saving the mummy dog. Enjoy preschoolers!
