Chocolate Mint Cheesecake
This came out great and was requested from my mother-in-law to definitely make again for the holidays. Instead of chocolate wafer cookies, I used Thin mint GS cookies. I didn't add the sugar to the crust since the cookies have enough sugar in them as it is. I misread the recipe and didn't have enough of the bittersweet chocolate for the topping, so I melted chocolate chips instead. I'm not sure if this is why my topping was too soft for piping into a lattice design but the chocolate glaze on top (which was basically a panache was delicious. As recommended from others I omitted the sour cream topping step. I also used 1/4 teaspoon peppermint oil since I couldn't find the extract at the supermarket I went to. All in all an expensive dessert indeed but I think it tasted as good or if not better than the ones you buy for about $40-50 at those cheesecake specialty shops. Yum !

Mushroom Pork Chops
My 5 year old son LOOOOOVED this and couldn't get enough ! I did what someone suggested & browned it first, then put it in a Pyrex dish & baked at 350 for 45 min (actually it said an hour, but my pork were cutlets, not chops). I used a Family sized Cream of Mushroom for extra sauce (I didn't add the milk, but will try that next time) and my son kept asking me to add more sauce to his. This is a keeper.

Shrimp Linguine Alfredo
Very good and easy to make. Only change I made was add some roasted garlic to it (since I made it the night before and had leftover cloves). Delish !
