Chantal's New York Cheesecake
My three-star rating includes the four-star taste and the two-star tips from reviewers I chose to listen to. With every recipe I read the reviews first to pick up tips from others who had more success adding ingredients/steps/etc. I decided to use the following tips all to hopefully stop the dreaded cracking of the cake: "lower the oven temp to 325," "grease around the sides of the pan to the top to help prevent the cake from adhering to the walls," "mix everything by hand until just incorporated," and "use a water bath or a pan full of water underneath the cake." Well, after taking these precautions, a half hour into the bake and I had a HUGE crack down the middle. Very disappointing. I liked the taste of this uber-traditional cheesecake, but I think next time I make this; I'll forego the safeguards from other reviewers and follow the recipe without worrying about cracks. A crack does not affect the taste, but the useless tips wasted my time and dirtied more dishes. By the way, I made a vanilla mango sauce for the top and it was fantastic.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad
This recipes makes a TON! Perfect for tailgating with a crowd or a family reunion. I usually make 1/2 or 1/3 the recipe...but I keep the bacon - yum! Thanks AFMC for adding tortellini to my favorite salad!
