Best Cheesecake on Earth
This was... alright. I split cooking the batter into 2 seperate dishes - I wanted a traditional in-the-crust cheesecake with this, and then the rest in a small square dish with the water pan. like the recipe says. Everything cooked great and worked - but it's not as "cheesecake" tasting as I was hoping. The texture wasn't as smooth either, even though I had it in the mixer to cream it for awhile. This is a "hmmm" cake. I'll probably look for another one to try out.

Clam Bake
Due to the season, I couldn't find fresh mussels, but I did the bake anyway! Turned out so good, and amazing broth left over! I like things spicy, so after I served myself, I added some fresh red pepper flakes and black pepper, which added a nice flare. In the bake, I also put chucks on onion and whole garlic cloves, which everyone loved. I'm looking forward to doing this more when summer comes around again!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough
My husband and I wanted to find an alternative to cut down on heavy breads and weighty pizz crusts, and this was a winner! Makes a very tasty thin crust, and definitely held up with all the toppings we like (a lot of fresh ingredients on top - basil leaves, olives, tomato slices, onions, garlic, grilled chicken, etc). We shared this when we had a small party and it was a hit!
