My cooking triumphs
When my first attempt at Cheesecake turned out quite tasty! It makes me feel good about my cooking when people tell me I should open a bakery.

Blueberry Cheesecake
Incredibly good!! I used Peggy Ellender's tips on cheesecake making and NO cracks, amazing crust, and followed recipe as is. Graham cracker crust is baked for 10 min. @ 350. Cool before pouring in cheesecake mixture. For cooking, I didn't try to wrap Springform pan w/foil, I put a cookie sheet with water in it on the bottom rack, and preheated to 350 (same as crust), turn to 250 soon as cheesecake goes in for 1.5 hrs. Turn off and leave in oven (door closed) for 3 hours for slow cooling. Refrigerate, then before serving, add blueberries. I used way more than 1/3 cup jelly! This is an AMAZINGLY good recipe and 3rd time I followed above. Store bought quality with ALL organic ingredients. MMMmmm MMM

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo
This was an incredible recipe, and turned out REALLY good!! I did make a few revisions, and it was still great! The amount of chicken was reduced to 4 breasts cubed, due to the large size and amount of chicken. I thought 1 Tbl spoon of salt was an awful lot, so didn't fill it up; and lastly, I only put 3 cut, minced cloves of garlic in w/the chicken. There were just two of us, and the amount this recipe made left plenty for another dinner or lunches for a few days.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
Tastes great!! I followed other reviewers advice and went with a full bag of the Choc. chips (milk Choc.) and the add'tl 1/4 of Graham crackers. The bottom set up nice, but seemed awfully dry prior to putting into the fridge and was too crumbly upon cutting it up. Next time, I'll stick with the 1 1/2 cups of the graham cracker and see if it holds together better. Tastes very similar to Reeses.
