DIY crafts and Internet cooking
We've all seen our friends share those "easy crafts" and scrumptious suppers shared on Facebook. They tout headings like "only 4 ingredients and only 20 mins in the oven!". I was suckered in by a few of those recipes and here was the outcome.
Scramble eggs with a mixer (for smooth beating) and either season or pour over veggies. One egg per muffin cup. Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Healthy breakfast!
Here's the real life "egg muffin". No veggies as I had none on hand but was only seasoned egg. Not so pretty and symmetrical. No idea how these eggs got so out of control! We ate them but I never made this again. Even though the herbs were blended with the mixer it's like they floated to the top during baking. Just weird.
With the holidays coming up I've seen the Salt Dough DIY hand/foot print ornament recipe. Sentimental and inexpensive when you're living on a budget to give as gifts to family. Here is the super easy internet version...
.....and here is ours. Ours are not painted or technically complete yet but you can tell that they are a world of difference. Lol, seriously I'm not trying to discourage anyone from trying anything but have an open mind and be realistic. You never know if you don't at least try!
