Home DIY: Natural Lemon Tub Scrub Test

It works okay but it takes a lot of scrubbing and it's a bit messy. This can be good once in a while but I feel there are more effective ways to clean a tub. I doubt different types of citrus work better. Please share your experiences and/or tips if you've tried this!

I've originally seen this done with a half of a grapefruit but lemons are easier to find where I am--and cheaper. Salt was also used but I tried baking soda since the particles are smaller and there's less of a chance of scratching up the tub (it still may, be warned)! You can find the directions here should you also want to try this out.

Low Carb: Buttery Lemon Shrimp!

I saw this pin on pinterest. I had shrimp. So this happened. 
I spiced it a bit differently with some garlic powder, oregano, and pepper. 
They were cooked 25 minutes instead of 15.

Hard Boiled Eggs...Baked in the Oven?

Yesterday I saw this on Pinterest and felt like giving it a go today. It was certainly interesting--the concept of baking eggs to get a creamier hard boiled consistency. Or something. Not sure if I'd do this all the time, though I suppose it's as easy as 'hard boiling' the normal way. I didn't notice a huge difference in taste or texture. They didn't smell as horribly heck hound-y like normal boiled eggs... but they still smelled. Cause they're eggs.

Watch me use an egg white like a puppet:

Low Carb Spinach & Bacon Muffin Frittata Crustless Quiche Things!

Guideline of ingredients (add whatever else you want!):
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of any shredded cheese
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup chopped bacon (6 or 7 pieces)
  • Spices with amounts up to you: Salt, pepper, garlic powder
Cook the bacon in a pan. If using fresh spinach, cook it in the pan after you're finished with the bacon. Chop the spinach and bacon up when they're cool enough. Combine all the ingredients and put them in muffin tins. Cook at 375 for about 15 or 20 minutes (or until done). Be careful not to overfill the muffin tins like I did. :) 

I guess this isn't a "real" frittata since it's just baked. Crustless quiche maybe? Eh. It's tasty. All that matters. Dysfunctional cooking.
