Ghirardelli Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Hearts
This recipe is exceptional! I felt like a top chef winner after making it! To all the questions re: is 4 oz enough? Yes, it is. Having said that, I did add a full 8 oz pkg of cr.cheese b/c I never know what to do with the left over cr. cheese. The dark choc is so rich, it really overpowers the cheese flavor so I don't think it matters if I used 4, 8 or 24 oz of cr. cheese because the chocolate flavor really comes through loud &clear! As a previous reviewer suggested, I placed a piece of buttered parchment paper in the bottom of my 13x9 pan & it came out like a dream. No sticking or crumbling. In fact, the pieces came out with the cookie cutter! I found that rinsing the cookie cutter between pieces helped reduce the problem I was having with the cake sticking to the cutter. I might try buttering my cookie cutter in the future. Also helpful was using a meat tenderizer (basically a glorified hammer) to gently tap on the cookie cutter once placed on the cake & pushed it down as far as I could by hand. It really helped cut through the crust. Like many people, I could not find chocolate graham crackers so instead, I used a package of oreos with the middles scraped out & omitted the sugar in the crust the recipe calls for. I also reduced the butter in the crust to 5 T. to avoid the over greasiness mentioned by another reviewer. This is a 5+ star recipe & I plan to use it year round. Maybe star shapes w/white choc ganache & blueberries atop the raspberry coulis on July 4th.

Chicken Enchiladas V
This recipe is very good and easy to make. I think I got the biggest compliment last week about it boyfriend and I went out to eat at a local, well-known Mexican restaurant. He ordered the he pushed his half finished plate away he told me "your enchiladas are better"! I have made a few modifications to the recipe to suit my tastes. Instead of the cream of chicken soup, I use Campbells Nacho Cheese or Southwestern Cheese soup. I add a jar of medium or mild green chile salsa to the sour cream/soup mixture for texture and spice. Instead of chopping the chicken for the filling, I shred it and add a few tablespoons of the sour cream/soup mixture to moisten the filling, otherwise it tends to be a bit dry to me.

Cheesecake Brownies
This recipe is fantastic and best of all EASY! In my family, I've gained the reputation as being the one who brings the sweets to family gatherings. But, this time, I was too tired to make the usual multi-step bars and brownies, so looking for something easy and quick, I decided to give this one a try! I made these for a Memorial Day get together in May and again for the annual 4th of July barbecue. Holy cow were they fantastic! These were sooo moist and they couldn't get any easier to make. These got lots of A++ reviews from my family and friends. I'm going to let them keep thinking I slave all day in the kitchen to make these wonderful brownies - but really I'll know the truth! ;-)
