    boobeary got a reaction from Derval in Rescue my mayo   
    I just wanted to thank everyone's suggestions. I attempted my first mayo this afternoon following a basic paleo mayo recipe from paleospirit.com (lemon juice, organic mustard, cayenne and light olive oil with the eggs). I tried in the blender adding just a bit of olive oil. Nothing seemed to be happening then I read a NY TImes article about adding a teaspoon of water to the yolks before the water. I tried again doing this and tried using a whisk. It seemed to be going nowhere again, but I didn't let myself add to much more oil. I looked at these comments on the forum, added a yolk to the blender, added my mixture, and continued adding the oil very slowly. It ended up with the most amazing, creamiest mayo I've tasted! I don't know if I waited long enough to stir the first time so maybe it would have turned out? But just want to thank the forum for seeing me through this. DAMN, it's good.

    boobeary got a reaction from helen in Uhmmm... I just binged on chocolate :(   
    Magda-- I so admire your courage in posting after the Chocolate Bath! (And the Sex in the City episode is hilarious. Miranda throws away a chocolate cake, and then begins eating it out of the trash bin. She calls Carrie and says she needs to be checked in to the Betty Crocker clinic). I am on my first whole 30, day 20, and my sugar dragon is red wine. I realize my addiction was more emotional and I've somehow made it past cravings when I originally pictured myself losing it and turning in to the lead character from Sideways who ends up drinking out of the spit container at a fancy wine tasting. I'm not craving it as much now. Since I can't have any other sugar, I'm now dreaming of peanut butter cookies, the kind I used to make when I was a kid, with the fork imprints. And also the girlscout cookie, TagAlongs, the peanut butter cake covered in chocolate.
    Oh my, this probably isn't helping. Back to my original point. Kudos for fessing up and starting over. You can do this. See ya on the other side!

    Deblang- I think the cheese might be the disqualifier, not the bacon. Unless I'm missing something important.
