White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
This is excellent. HOWEVER...I just never use white chips, as they are not chocolate, but rather artificially flavored chips. I prefer real white chocolate, (make with cocoa butter.) I used 12 oz. of bar white chocolate. (Ghiaradelli is what the store had.) The flavor is so much better. I also use chocolate Teddy Grahams for the crust. I have used T.G.'s before, in their honey and cinnamon flavors, as well. They are so easy to crush in the food processor. I also use the water bath on the shelf directly below the pan.

Warm Mexican Corn Dip
This dip is quite good, but the fat count is just off the charts...2 sticks of butter! Yikes! Here's what I do: I used just 1/2 stick of butter, (unsalted,) and I also use the lower fat cream cheese, (Neufchatel.) I also put the canned tomatoes into the food processor and pulse it a bit, to chop up the tomatoes, and give more consistency to the tomatoes when they are in the dip. I use frozen corn, as other do. I just zap it in the micro for about a minute or two. If you can't find white corn, yellow frozen corn works fine.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops
Great flavor. I sauteed a chopped shallot in oil, then browned the chops in the pan. I removed them to a plate, and added the butter to melt, then stirred in the b.sugar, cinn, and nutmeg. Added apples back to the pan, coated them well, and then put the chops back into the pan, covering them with the apple sauce. I covered the skillet, and baked @325 for 45 min. PERFECT. The only thing I will do next time is to remove the chops just before serving, and pour the gravy into a oil-separator. Then add back to the pan, and thicken it up a bit. to beat! My family loved it!
