Chocolate Chip Cheesecake - John Scott (email@example.com)
This is a very decadent desert, not for the faint of heart. The platter we served tonight at a little league cookout disappeared in five minutes.
1 8oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
for chocolate chip cookies:
2-1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks (1 cup) butter (room temperature)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Make dough for your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, or as follows: combine 3/4 cup white, 3/4 cup brown sugar with butter until smooth; add eggs and vanilla. Add chocolate chips (nuts, coconut, etc. can also be added). In a separate bowl combine remaining dry ingredients. Combine the two bowls until smooth.
Mix cheesecake ingredients: beat 1 egg; add cream cheese, mix until smooth; add vanilla and sugar; mix until smooth.
Spread about 60% of the cookie dough in the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 pan. Spread the cheesecake evenly over it. Top with patties of the remaing cookie dough. Leave some evenly spaced gaps of cheesecake showing.
Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. The center should no longer be loose.
Let cool before cutting.

Melt butter in large sauce pan and saute garlic and parsley for 2 min. then add the cauliflower. Stir and cover cooking for about 8 minutes, until the cauliflower has softened slightly.

Frogmoor Stew - Grateful Steve (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I first encountered this dish at a community festival in Frogmoor, SC. It is the perfect one pot meal, suitable for as few or as many as the size of your pot will acommodate.
1/4 - 1/2 lb. shrimp
6" of kielbasa
1 ear of corn
4 - 6 new potatoes
Old Bay Seafood Seasoning to taste...more is hotter...hotter is better
Cut kielbasa into 1" pieces.
Shuck and break corn in half
Place sausage, uncut unpeeled potatoes and Old Bay into the pot and bring to a boil.
When potatoes are tender, add corn.
When the water returns to aboil, add unpeeled shrimp.
When shrimp turns pink (about 2 minutes), remove.
Serve with horse radish cocktail sause and no utensils. This is finger food. Give the corn cobs and shrimp shells back to the earth.
For a big crowd, us less (or smaller) shrimp and more potatoes.

Grateful Dead playing in the background
It's really simple!!!all you have to do, is spread the butter on both sides of both slices, then put the cheese in the middle, and slap it in the frying pan if you want, sprinkle a little herb(s);-) on for flavor. when you can't take it any longer, eat it hot. Tastes best when Aoxomoxoa is playing in the background. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!Peace!
Noodle Thing - Tom (email@example.com)
Here's a really easy dinner sort of thing. Not sure how to describe the taste, but it's good. It is also impossible to screw up unless you manage to set your kitchen ablaze.
Big handfull of spaghetti
1 or 2 big tablespoons of sesame tahina
monster or montery jack cheese
Put cooked pasta into bowl, chop into 1/2" cubes a bunch of cheese and add to pasta, add 1 big tablespoon of sesame tahina. taste. Kinda horribly sicky, eh? No?,then add another tablespoon of tahina. Add soy sauce until it is the desired taste. Enjoy! Add carrotts and peas if you're too lazy to cook a vegetable; just dump them in and nuke it to warm it up. Of course the cheese melts and really make a good trough job of it. Oh yeah, on a diffferent subject - if you live in a "community" house where others never do the dishes and there are never clean plates go out and buy youself a dog bowl. Trust me, you'll never find it dirty (well, this might only work if there isn't an actual dog in the house).
