Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake
I made this recipe with full fat cream cheese, etc for about $12. I also added the salted pecans that another reviewer suggested -- very good addition. I took it to a special birthday party and it was a total hit. Since there was about 15 of us, we had relatively thin slices -- yeah, it's rich. And I did do some extra time on the dreadmill and ate a little lighter than usual the next day. Overall, the dessert was fun to make, everyone enjoyed it and I didn't go up a dress size because of it. Thank you Betty Crocker. Controlling obesity has a lot to do with common sense and eating balanced meals + exercise. It doesn't exclude occasional indulgences.. unless you can't handle taking just a little of something and then end up eating the whole thing. If you can't control your food intake or tend to make poor shopping choices, maybe you should not even LOOK at a cheesecake recipe!

Slow-Cooker Steak and Black Bean Chili
My husband put this together in our slow cooker. The only thing he did different was to use a London broil which he cut up in small pieces. It turned out great! I can't wait to do this one again.
