White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Our absolute favorite Cheesecake! This delicious cake never lasts more than 1 day. Make the recipe as directed, you won't be disappointed :-) Tips: bake in a water bath-I cover the outside of the springform pan with foil and place it on a cookie sheet that I fill partially with water. Once the cake is done, turn off the oven but don't remove the cake for an hour.

Pot Roast Dips
My husband and son gave this 2 thumbs up, I wasn't as impressed and just thought it was okay. I gave it 4 stars because it was simple to make on a busy work week and because I was overruled by the family :-) After shredding the meat and putting it back in the crock pot, the meat soaked up all the left over au jus and there was nothing left for dipping, although the meat was flavorful enough that you didn't really need more juice.

Simple BBQ Ribs
These came out so good! I've never made ribs before and wasn't sure how long to boil and bake them, but I followed other reviews and boiled for 45 mins before baking for an hour. Every 20 mins I put on more bbq sauce and when the meat reached 160 degrees, I uncovered the dish, poured on more sauce and broiled for a few more minutes.
