Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake
I made this for my mom's birthday. Made with a graham cracker crust. I was nervous as I tried the creamcheese batter before putting it in the oven and to be honest I was underwhelmed. I bought a back-up pecan pie, just in case. Well I was pleasantly surprised to see everyone ranting and raving about the cheesecake (even my step father who doesn't like sweets). The store bought pie went virtually untouched. My mom called a few days later to say they were fighting over the last few pieces! Will make this again! :)

Spaghetti Squash I
This was my first time cooking with spaghetti squash and I was pleasantly surprised! I used a 1 pound (small) squash and cut it in half as directed. I ended up baking it face-down for 45 mins based on other reviews, and still think it could have cooked for another 10 minutes. I caramelized the onion in the saucepan for extra flavour and used 2 large cloves of garlic. As tomatoes are very expensive right now, I used a 398mL can of diced tomatoes and the flavour was gorgeous. I also used dried basil and left out the feta and olives as I didn't have any on hand. Both myself and my boyfriend (meat eater) loved it! I know this is a lot of changes, but I can imagine how much more flavour the feta and olives would add, and will definitely add them in the future! Thank you.

Duck Breasts with Raspberry Sauce
Excellent recipe - really important not to over-broil it at the end. The sea salt, cinnamon and sugar rub was too much, and I ended up using only about 3/4 of it. I used Triple Sec instead of Creme de Cassis due to availability which worked out just fine. Otherwise the dish was fantastic and received rave reviews at Christmas dinner.
