Very, Very, Very Good Cheesecake
I usually don't care much for cheesecake at all, but this cheesecake is very rich in flavor and has a light, creamy texture. Mmmmm, mmmm! I always assumed that cheesecake would be difficult to make too, but this was super easy and absolutely perfect! I actually did a half recipe, so I only needed to cook it for about 40 mins to get the internal temperature to 150. This cheesecake, like any other, should be pretty jiggly in the center once you turn the oven off. You then let it cool in the oven with the door ajar for 30 min. At that point, run a knife around the outside, leave in on the counter in the spring form pan until 100% cool, then refrigerate overnight before slicing and serving. The key to know is that your cheesecake will never LOOK done. Just check internal temp or go by the time and have faith that it's fine.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle
This is the best peanut brittle I've ever had! I live in Virginia, so I've had tons of brittles, but this one was perfect on every note--not too buttery, not too sweet, not overly airy or crumbly, and since I did a rounded 1/4tsp, the saltiness was perfect for me too! I don't have a candy thermometer, so I used the cold water test. However, I must say that you can really just go by color. Once it gets to the color that we all know brittle to have, go another minute and you're done. I forgot about the fork tip and I spread with a rubber spatula, which was less than ideal, because I ended up with 2 small holes. Not bad, but not perfect on my part. I spread some Godiva semi sweet baking chocolate and a touch of dark chocolate on half and did a light sprinkling of table salt on top. Yum!!! I think that this is actually better in a 9x12 pan, rather than the suggested one.

Fluffy Pancakes
The absolute best pancake recipe, hands down! Not even the restaurants can top this one. The pancakes are fluffy and soft with just the right amount of a slight chewiness to make the stand up to syrup and have a great mouthfeel. The flavor is also great--just the right amount of sugar, not too sweet, but just enough that you might even want to sneak one of these tasty pancakes plain. Yum, yum, yum! I do like to increase the vanilla to 2-3 tsps.
