What I Did: My super crafty friend posted a photo of BEAUTIFUL baked avocado eggs she made for breakfast this morning. I thought to myself, I can so do that. Easy peasy. Mine ended up smelling, tasting, and um… looking? Like fart.

My Result:


Next Time I Will: I would need to use avocados that weren’t slightly past their prime, and probably dig more of the avocado out before pouring in the egg. Or just eat them separately, because that would most likely be yummier.

What I Did: When you follow a strict diet like the Paleo diet, you often seek to replace your old favorite foods with modified versions. Hence my attempt to make these drool-worthy cinnamon rolls. Despite following the directions to a tee, I should have known something was wrong when the dough was impossibly sticky, making the “roll” part of the cinnamon roll quite difficult. They looked kind of like dough blobs by the time they made it to the pan, and this was my final result.

My Result:


Next Time I Will: My husband loving chided me, saying, “There is no way the picture of a cinnamon roll on that site was made from something other than flour.” Although the blobs were delightfully tasty, I don’t think they were worth the messy hassle.

Dexter Bloody cupcakes broken glass halloween

What I Did: A friend of mine asked me to make these for him, so I figured “why not?”. I’m rather skilled at baking and these looked easy. The only thing I did different was I used wilton food coloring for the blood and used very little water with the corn syrup.

My Result:


Next Time I Will: I would probably use a larger baking sheet for the “glass” so it won’t be so thick.

What I Did: What happened was I wanted to use what I had in the house. This extremely CREATIVE wreath was constructed out of household recyclables:empty V-8 cans, blue painters tape, orange & beige raffia, orange & white lion’s heart yarn (apparently, this is considered “cheap” yarn in the knitting world), and spider web treat bags blown up.

My Result: 

Next Time I Will: This is as good as it get when one uses “cheap” yarn and tries to recycle crap

What I Did: I loved this picture and wanted to try with my 2 month old. I first tried her with just a pamper and then put the romper on because I thought she hated it because she was cold. My husband said she hated it because she was placed inside of food. I will modify pumpkin and try again.


My Result: 



Next Time I Will: Try a bigger pumpkin.
