Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)
Great. My partner doesn't normally like marinated meats. This is the exception. It would be best (like most other meats) to cook over the grill, but we made do with stove-top cooking. Added stir fry veggies on the side. Summer plans include grilled pineapple.

Nutella(R) Cheesecake
We are fans of Nutella, and of both styles of cheesecake (baked & not). This was neither. I followed the recipe with the changes recommended - egg, baked, no sugar. The sweetness level was about right...but it was the only thing right about the dish. The dessert itself was very smooth, dense & heavy reminiscent of the original cream cheese bar it came from. It did not taste anything like a cheesecake - either style. The normally wonderful taste of Nutella was reduced to an ambiguous bleh. I was looking for a recipe for a special baked dish to take to an upcoming event..this was not it.

Cheesecake Ice Cream
I was hoping for a fresh ice cream with good taste & texture. Something light and non-descript in flavor. This one is not a keeper. Pros: Easy enough to make - no cooking. Common ingredients - no special trips to the store to make it. Has a great consistency and texture. Cons: Has a weird after taste, almost a bite to it. Doesn't taste like "cheese cake" at least none I've ever had.
