Chantal's New York Cheesecake
This cheesecake is delicious. I do add a teaspoon of dried lemon rind and would advise to NOT use a graham cracker crust because of how long it has to cook ) I use a shortbread crust and it comes out perfectly!

Penne with Shrimp
This recipe is a good base recipe. I added basil, oregano, and italian seasoning. I also added some sliced red, yellow and green peppers. I cook the sauce separately, and then add a bit of corn starch mixed in water to thicken. I've also used pre cooked shrimp. It has many possibilities. . . I usually just use what I have on hand, and it is good every time. It has become a repeat recipe in my house.

Chicken Pot Pie II
This is an awesome chicken pot pie recipe, and I've tried A LOT! I didn't have any celery or mixed veggies, but it still turned out DELISH! I used a crust for the top and bottom. . . I used a basic pie crust recipe, added a little more butter/shortening so it would knead thin, added dried parsley and onion powder to the crust mix. I used some left over baked chicken I had from the night before, therefore I omitted the salt and pepper since the chicken was already seasoned. I used frozen corn, canned green beans and added mushrooms. I used 2% milk, and added sage and rosemary along with the thyme. For those of you who are getting a "watery" filling. . . make certain you are cooking the filling long enough for it to thicken. . . my filling came out superb using a lower fat milk (who needs the extra calories? lol) I will definately be making this again with fresh vegetables and celery!!!
