Chantal's New York Cheesecake
Who knew a cheesecake could be so easy? With 1 recipe (12 servings) I made 2 separate cheesecakes in the store-bought graham cracker pre-made crust pans. Same cooking time, but you will definitely have a lot of leftover batter. I'm definitely NOT a cheesecake fanatic. I could generally take it or leave it, if there are other dessert options (love me some cobbler) available, but this turned out much, MUCH better than any other pre-made or restaurant cheesecake I've tried. I'll definitely make it again!

Campbell's(R) Green Bean Casserole
Eh... it was okay? The problem for me is that I've never actually tasted a green bean casserole, as my family never served it at any functions or festivities. Maybe if I'd grown up with this dish, I'd love it like my husband does. I followed the recipe exactly, but I feel like using Campbell's is probably not as good as a more made-from-scratch approach. Nonetheless, I'll keep it on file. My husband says he liked it.

Pie Crust IV
I normally avoid making pie crust, because I hate how complicated it can become with certain recipes. Some require that you use freezing water (with an actual layer of ice), that you place the crust in the refrigerator for some time, etc. Plus when it comes to made-from-scratch vs. store-bought, I feel like the crust is the least important part of the pie. Most people just want the filling. That said, I ran out of pre-made crusts this Thanksgiving, and had to make a from-scratch crust. This was the EASIEST recipe I've ever used, plus it was tasty and had a nice texture. This is now my default crust recipe!
