Recipe Hit and Miss

I was searching for a homemade Polvoron recipe when I stumbled upon Yummly. It’s site that offers free recipes, including low carb ones. Polvoron forgotten, I got hooked at looking for food I can cook with ingredients I currently have at home.

For breakfast, i attempted to do “Cream Cheese Pancakes” and For dinner, I made “Pepperoni Pizza Cauliflower Casserole

Bottom line is, I can’t flip well! Can someone tell me what I did wrong?
The food may look bad, but it tasted really good. sort of like french toast, without the sugar or the carb. Perfect for LCHF eaters like me!

Here was my dinner experiment:

All the ingredients I need. i substituted the meat in the recipe with something that has no preservatives.

step 3: mix together with some meat and cheese. I had a hard time doing this, because i think I was using the wrong blade (or the wrong tool)

This recipe really worked for me. It tasted like pizza, felt like lasagna. A small slice immediately made feel full.

I think I’m hooked. That same night, I bought a low carb cookbook. Earlier today, I spent around P6k buying various type of cheese, cream and meat. I’m quite excited to experiment!

  1. Thanks for trying my recipes! On the pancakes, you have to wait longer before you flip in order for them to stay together. I’ve been making them for years and I still get impatient and end up with broken pancakes when I flip too soon! Glad you liked the recipes! šŸ™‚
