PHILADELPHIA New York Cheesecake III
This has become my staple recipe. I've tried some in the past that were too eggy, fluffy, or just too bland. This one has the right amount of tang from the sour cream and a really dense dense texture. The trick is to avoid overbaking it; i bake for an hour before shutting the oven off and letting it sit another 20 minutes. I then crack the oven for another hour or so before finally moving it to the counter. Eventually it makes it to the fridge where I cover it with saran wrap and leave it to set overnight. This method prevents any cracking whatsoever and one is left with a smooth, vanilla creamy looking top. FYI I only used 4 packages cream cheese and 1/2 cup sour cream this time as it was all I had, tasted excellent. Reduced to 3 eggs and 2.5 tbsp of flour to reflect difference in sour cream/cream cheese. I also used a shortbread pie crust as the base and it turned out excellent also. Great hit, rave reviews, staple recipe!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies
Every time i've made this cookie its received rave reviews ... its the perfect balance in texture - crisp on the outside with a semi chewy middle and soft center. You can make the cookie softer or more crisp by varying the cook time which is another thing I like about this recipe. I use butter instead of margerine, add 1/2 tsp vanilla, double the amount of salt (kosher), and swap out butterscotch for chocolate chips. I've tried many many cookie recipes and this has become my definite staple, go to recipe. It's super easy and when I bring these to potlucks or meetings people really enjoy them. These cookies are addictive and yummy!

Mom's Sticky Chicken From 1972
This is a really good recipe, reminds me very much of sweet and sour chicken. Followed recipe to a T, came out just great. I was thinking about skipping the fry step though I'm glad I didn't. Without it the chicken wouldve likely been too soggy. This recipe is def worth a try, I'll be integrating it into the standard lineup. Perfect with steamed rice and fresh chopped scallions sprinkled over top before serving.
