Pollo Fajitas
This wasn't bad, but wasn't amazingly awesome either. It seemed to be a bit vinegar-y, and I'm not sure it really has an authentic Mexican style taste to it. I did let it marinate in the fridge for about an hour before I cooked it and added twice the amount of garlic that it asked for (but followed the rest of the directions). Both my boyfriend and I thought it was just OK.

Taco Seasoning I
I didn't have any paprika or red pepper, so I substituted a total of 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper instead. I also used slightly less than a teaspoon of sea salt, and it was still plenty salty, so I think that could be reduced next time. With my substitutions, it made slight over 6 teaspoons (or about 2.5 tablespoons). I ended up using about 1.5 Tbs for 1/2 lb of ground beef and the amount of seasoning seemed to work just fine. Like others mentioned I added flour to the mix before dumping on the browned, drained beef and added water (a little over 1/3 cup) and let it simmer down.

Extreme Chocolate Cake
I followed the recipe exactly, and it came out very rich and dense. Making the recipe as is with two 9" pans resulted a 2-layer cake that was about 2" tall. Each layer did not rise very much at all. I ended up having to bake the cake for an additional 15 minutes before the toothpick came out clean. I thought it would dry out the cake, but it was still very moist. We ended up not eating it for another 1.5 days later, and it was still very moist and delicious. It was very easy to make and surprised everyone that I made it completely from scratch!
