Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops
OK - first off, February is not grilling season here on good old Cape Cod, MA - so I knew I needed to find an alternate cooking method. Here's what I did - I seasoned the chops with salt and pepper, and then browned on each side in a skillet in a little bit of butter. Removed the chops, scraped all the cooked bits, and then added DOUBLE all of the sauce ingredients MINUS the s&p, water, and cornstarch. I then plopped the chops back into the skillet, covered, and cooked for about 25 mins.... DONE! Was absolutely delicious, and the sauce caramelized very nicely in the pan and did not need the water and cornstarch to thicken. I definitely recommend doubling the sauce as everyone loved dipping the pork in the extra sauce.

Frog Cupcakes
Very easy, and very cute. I cut each marshmallow twice, widthwise and lengthwise, so I ended up using only 6, as each yielded 4 "eyeballs." I'm also unsure of this whole "glue the chocolate chip on with frosting thing" I knew that would be a fiasco, so I just jabbed the pointy end of each chocolate chip into the marshmallow till it was attached... much easier and less time consuming. I also didn't bother with the red food coloring, i just used brown and pink decorators icing to make the nostrils, mouth, and tongue. Overall, the kids LOVED these and I would definitely make these again!!

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake
Very good... i was being lazy, and didn't even bother "marbling" it, which subsequently resulting in my forgetting to add the last 1/4 cup of sugar..... didn't even miss it! I also doubled the spices as suggested by others. Next time I may give it a go with Neufchatel cheese, just to see if the extra spices and pumpkin flavor would mask the lighter taste.
