Lori2882 Posted February 5, 2014 Share Posted February 5, 2014 I am stressed/overwhelmed/upset by basic recipes failing for reasons I can't explain. It also is doing the same for my pocketbook! We are doing our first Whole30...ate ok before - not worst of the worst, but definitely not great either. We are 5 days from the end of our 30 days, and I'd like to stick to this way of eating, but it seems like it'll be difficult to enjoy sticking with it with FAILS on things like a freakin mayo recipe! First mayo attempt failed on a consistency level...this time followed a video posted on theclothesmakethegirl.com and ROCKED the consistency part, but it tastes AWFUL! Like bitter wood! Used light olive oil. Sitting here racking brain about what I did wrong...thought I used a higher quality oil...I did accidentally let egg sit out for 3 hours...may have used old mustard powder...but I've also read about blending issues making oil bitter...or lastly I also wonder if it is just my tastes that are screwed up from years of commercial junk? But I don't know cause I mean this. stuff. tastes. BAD! I just don't know where to start, but I feel like its too risky/expensive to try 10 more times to get it right! (Especially when every comment about the recipe I'm trying is a raving review about how awesome it tastes! My coconut butter didn't turn out so hot either!) Anyone else having these issues? I'd just like something to go right for once considering how much time (I know my kids are missing me as at times I feel I live in a grocery store or kitchen!), MONEY, and effort is going into this great way of eating! I've cut out the bread, pasta, sugar, oils, dairy, etc. but dammit I NEED mayo and other such basics to make this transition easier! It also makes me scared to try other recipes like these out of fear they will taste awful and be a waste of time and money - hence the 20 days in between my first mayo attempt and my second!
