Oven Baked Jambalaya
I made this for dinner tonight. I had to cut down on some of the hotter spices in the mix so my young kids could eat it and rather than baking it in the oven i did everything in a big electric roasting pan that has a lid - I cooked it for 45mins on medium heat and it was perfect. Very nice thanks!

Chocolate Covered Cherries
I was not sure of this recipe as im not a huge glace cherry fan...and i was right to be unsure. I didnt like the glace cherries so I made them again with room temperture frech cherries and dried cherries. With the fresh ones...dont let them sit for 2 weeks you wont be liking the mouldy cherry but they are fantastic served the same day with coffee after dinner and the dried cherries were fanstastic as you could let them sit for a week or 2 and they retained all the flavour of a real cherry without the mould. VERY YUM!

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake
I made this twice and gave this 4 stars for a for a few reasons. 1: because the wafer base turned out yuck so i had to make it again and i used oreos instead. 2: because when made according to recipe it was too chocolatety so i changed it too 1/3 less and used dark chocloate 70% cocoa which made it yummy and also used only 2/3 of the condensed milk because its too sickly 3: it wasnt fudgey it was just cheesecake texture and i dont think there is anything you can do about it. Was yum once the kinks were ironed out.
