Juicy Pork Chops
Added a TBS of brown sugar to the marinade, which made it taste a bit teriyaki. Used mostly regular soy sauce, but added a little bit of low sodium sauce. Marinated 1-8" - 1/4" chops for an hour and a half to two hours. Turned out wonderfully.

Old Fashioned Potato Cakes
These were delicious! The only things I added were garlic powder and an extra egg(as some previous reviewers did). I felt the extra egg made them difficult to handle and shape. Next time I will try them with just the one egg as the recipe calls for.

New York Cheesecake III
I chose this recipe because of the shortbread crust, as I don't care for graham cracker. This is absolutely the best cheesecake I've ever tasted. I do add a tsp of vanilla but that's the only change I make to the recipe. Creamy and heavy but not so heavy that it feels like a lump in your stomach after eating a piece. This was the first cheesecake I've ever made and it's so easy. I've made it 4 times now and it's been amazing each time. Just make sure you let the cream cheese get to room temperature first and you should get good results each time...even if you overcook it. The very simple, Whipped Cream recipe from this site goes lovely with it also.
