Meatball Nirvana
These were excellent, and easy to make! My only concern was that they tasted a bit salty, but I will see what I can do next time I make them to refine that for our family's taste. There will definitely be a next time!

Five Minute Ice Cream
Delicious! I made mine half frozen strawberry and half frozen peach (5 ounces of each). I used my blender, an appliance which I have never felt mastery over. It doesn't seem to like really chopping up big chunky frozen things (like ice, or fruit in this case) and although I added half the amount of the cream at the bottom of the blender before trying to blend the fruit, it still didn't really work perfectly. I had to leave the blade running probably a lot longer than I should have, which melted the ice crystals more and gave me an "ice cream soup" texture, rather than firm scoopable ice cream as shown in the picture. REGARDLESS, this was an excellent, creamy refresher. My kids went gaga over it. I should mention that I started with adding only half of the sugar (1/4 cup) and found that was plenty sweet for us. Your mileage may vary! :) Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake
Beautiful, delicious, and complex in flavor. I did not use coffee liqueur because I didn't have any. I just used instant espresso powder + hot water for 1/4 cup, and hot freshly-brewed coffee for the other 1/4 cup. The only other changes I made were increasing the crust amount as suggested by other reviewers (I tripled the cookie crumbs and doubled the butter) and exchanging ONE block of cream cheese with neufchatel cheese. My cheesecake cracked during the time it was in the fridge. I recommend slipping a knife between the crust and the pan edges before putting it in the fridge to cool overnight. I think this would have prevented the cracking. Thank you for the fantastic recipe. We enjoyed it for Valentine's Day and have several more slices in the freezer to enjoy over the next few weeks.
