As a teacher, it's been wonderful to have the summer off and try new recipes for my low carb diet.  I've been testing some on the kids to see if they notice the difference... they usually can't!  For example, I made meatloaf low carb by using crushed pork rinds instead of bread crumbs, and… MORE

Creole Seasoning Blend
We used this on tilapia to make blackened fish. It was overall quite good, but too salty for my tastes. First, I made the recipe as written, but I reduced the cayenne to 1/4 teaspoon (to make it kid friendly). My kids really liked it (even though they said it was spicy, they still ate it up!!). Then, I made my husband's and my fish, by adding back about 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne to the remaining mixture. I thought the spiciness level was good, maybe even a little much (just personal preference). Overall it was good, but I gave it 4 stars because I felt it was way too salty as written. I will make it again, though, but with much less salt. You can always add salt once it's cooked, but you can't take it away!

Extreme Chocolate Cake
OH MY!!! What a delicious, rich, moist chocolatey cake!! I made it exactly as written and it came out great! Make sure to use a 9 inch pan, or it may bubble over like some other reviewers mentioned. I was a little unsure how it would be after adding boiling water because the batter was so runny, but it was great! I wasn't a huge fan of the frosting, but the cake was amazing, so I give the cake part of the recipe 5 stars, and the frosting part 3 because I didn't like the texture of it (but that might be personal preference).

Herbed Dumplings
I followed the advice of others and cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon. I felt the herbs were a tad overwhelming, and next time I will use half of each. However, the fluffiness and texture of the dumplings was exactly what I was looking for. I will make again, but with less salt and herbs.
