Slow Cooker Thai Curry Chicken Soup

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it definitely has been a winner! Not only is it an easy, one-crock-pot, no other fuss recipe, but it is absolutely delicious.  I will generally put this together at lunch, and then it's ready for dinner! I have not tried it on low for 8 hours yet, but I bet it would be just as delicious.  I have made this 3 times, and it never disappoints.  I even made this when my mother-in-law was in town visiting and I wanted to have dinner ready when I came home from work.  I'm allergic to peanuts, so I use almond butter.  I'm sure it's even tastier with peanut butter.  I also think it would be delicious with 1 can of cut pineapple at the end with the lime.
Also, random tip I picked up somewhere, the easiest way to peel ginger is with the back of a spoon! No more wasting ginger when you use a paring knife or peeler.  The ginger peel slips right off!

Best Ever Cheesecake

Just in time for Valentine's Day!
Reid calls this "the amazingly good cheesecake".  It is really good.  I don't think I could over express how freaking delicious this cheesecake is.  I have given this recipe to one friend in vet school and she also gets comments on how delicious this cheesecake is.  I recently made this for work because a whole slew of us had birthdays at the end of January/beginning of February.  One of my receptionist requested it for her birthday in September, too.  Reid also requested it for his birthday, coming up next week.  This cake is Reid's absolute favorite cake.  So in summary, everyone freaking loves this cheesecake.  It is amazingly smooth and fluffy and delicious all at the same time. It would be great for Valentine's Day. 
This recipe comes from my aunt Co Be's friend Art, who went to culinary school for fun.  He had catered a few of our family reunions and we all had to have this recipe.  I think Co Be was the first one …
