Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake
This rating is only for the filling. Delicious! Beautiful color, like a chocolate mousse but firm as a baked cheesecake should be and delicately flavored. I didn't have any cookies so I used a honey Graham crust. It was fine, though a chocolate crust would've been prettier. I've never had an issue with cheesecakes cracking because I use a bain-marie while baking, then when it's done I leave it in the oven for a few hours to cool.

Irish Soda Bread
I made this to go with our corned beef dinner and we ate it hot out of the oven. My dough was so soft and sticky I couldn't mark the 'X'on top and it rose up like a giant popover. Crunchy golden crust. Tender, yellow and slightly sweet inside. Only had 1 cup of raisins and it was enough. I wouldn't recommend omitting them.
