Cheddar Cheese Chip Crisps
Very Good 4.3/5
(3 ratings)

You know those heavenly, crispy little edges around your grilled cheese where the cheddar oozed out and crisped up on the side? Well... with these little cheese crisps that is just what you are getting!!

No carbs! Great for a little snack when you are craving that crunch from a potato chip. Just whip you up a batch of these little gems and they will satisfy that craving. Rich enough to where you only need just a few!

Mizzsoulsista's Soul-full Low-Carb Shrimp Casserole
Very Good 4.1/5
(8 ratings)

I hope that you like this, because it was really yummy to my roommate and I. It looks like it has a lot of ingredients, but it is really easy to make. Feel free to sub shrimp for other seafood or poultry.

P.S. Please excuse the tacky picture--I was really feeling myself ;-)

P.P.S. Please don't hesitate to season the shrimp VERY good, this dish will get most of it's flavor from the broth left from shrimp.
