Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Maybe you can help me solve a mystery today. What’s the problem with these biscuits I made last night??
I was craving some bread after my hubby made this fabulous dinner of beef stroganoff and they were eating what I could not…cheesy garlic bread.
So, I scoured Pinterest for a low carb version and came up with these delicious sounding Cheddar Biscuits like Red Lobster makes-using almond flour of course!
I followed the given recipe, yet frowned when it called for 1 Tablespoon of baking powder. Maybe I should have trusted my instincts, they turned out beautiful-but bitter!
I was so disappointed!! You don’t know how badly I wanted that bread and how so looking forward to something delicious I had been. I almost cried. Now I have to pitch the whole lot.
That’s a waste of expensive ingredients, I know us cooks have failed experiments and that’s just part of the process but…ouch! Whether you grind your own or buy a bag, almond flour is pricey!
Now, I guess it’s possible that the almond flour was bad, yet it had been in the refrigerator, not even opened yet. It was an off brand that I got from Aldi, but fresh.
Normally I buy the brand in the link above, yet this time I replaced what I’d used once before with the same thing. I don’t think it was the culprit though.
I’ve included pictures of the recipe and my final product. You tell me…what went wrong?? They were so pretty too. 🙁
All the ingredients I used were new and fresh except the baking powder. Not sure if it’s old, or if the quantity was just too much, just want to understand why they were bitter!
I know I have been away for a while, I’m considering scrapping my whole site since I have not had the time lately to post. The internet is saturated with keto blogs now anyway.
I’m about to be unemployed again (even though I was only working part-time, I still need the money), so I need to get serious about my goals and really try to earn a living through my writing.
Should I keep it? Change it again? Write about something entirely new? I’m open to suggestions here, I know, I do this every year don’t I? What can I say, New Year, new aspirations.
I got a new journal for Christmas, a prayer journal, and my hubby is remodeling the office and buying me a new desk for my Christmas present!
I had him paint it cream and lavender-it’s going to be lovely when he is done and hopefully, inspiring!!
Well, I hope you can help me solve the mystery! I also want to wish you all a Happy New Year whatever your plans, stay alive, don’t drink and drive PLEASE!!!
Love you all, goodbye 2019 and good riddance! JK, I guess it wasn’t ALL bad.
