Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake
I cheated and used prepared pumpkin pie mix from the store. Far easier to make. Don't skimp on the crust though...make that from scratch because it's much better tasting and simple to make.

Smoky Mac 'n Cheese
This was fantastic and, since it's more of adult variation, I disagree that "more cheesy" is needed. The flavor was rich and complex and paired well with a medium bodied red wine. Just to make sure to drain the tomatoes very well so it doesn't turn out soupy.

Garlic Prime Rib
This turned out fantastic with some alterations! I made small cuts into the meat and inserted slivers of garlic for better penetration of flavor, cooked it on Convection for a crispier crust, and took the meet out at 125deg for med. rare. 135 is too high in my opinion.
