    Nice twist on this dish

    CHERYL PETERSEN from ELBOW LAKE, MN

    I really enjoyed the subtle taste of cinnamon in this dish. All of the flavors blended nicely together. I don't know that I would use capers again as that was the only taste that seemed a little stronger than the rest. A good sign was that my kids ate it - no questions, no arguments!

    Wonderfully differnt

    Danielle Garcia from North Chili, NY

    We first tried this recipe several months ago, omitting the raisins and we all loved it, even my 3 and 5 year olds. My husband addes crushed red pepper to his and looks forward to having the dish often. Those who omit the cinnamon, are doing the recipe a HUGE injustice, as that is what truly makes this recipe.

    CINNAMON IN BEEF

    Jasmine N CODY from FARMINGDALE, NY

    I have put cinnamon in my meatloaf for years and everyone always wanted to know what the secret ingredient was - they could never quite put their finger on it. You really do not taste the cinnamon in this. . . just a hint of something different and good. I suspect many who reviewed that the cinnamon taste was too much, never really made this - as it is JUST RIGHT.

    Tasty with health benefits!

    Alyssa Medici from COLUMBIA, SC

    I've been reading a lot lately about how cinnamon is a great additive for foods because it helps the body in so many ways. They say that just a teaspoon a day is helpful. I loved this recipe because I get to put a little extra ingredient into teh food I serve the ones I love, knowing that they are eating a tasty dinner & reaping health benefits from the added cinnamon!

    Quick but average

    mary drake from Maryland

    I was looking for a super easy to make meal and I had all the ingredients, plus the recipe had 5 stars. How could I lose? I found this recipe to be boring, although I did enjoy the cinnamon and raisin combo and the other ingredients are ones I like. Actually, I would add more raisins. If a recipe doesn't inspire me to go for seconds I don't make it again. This one will not be saved.

    Not Bad

    DIANNE CAMPBELL from Ontario, Canada

    Wasn't bad, with 6 people to feed it's hard to make something that everyone likes. My six yr old son loved it went back for seconds and would have had 3rds if I'd let him. I won't add the raisins again though, they got picked out by most of the kids. My 17 yr old daughter thought that maybe sliced black olives would be nice to try in it. That will be a treat for just her and I, I guess as we are the only ones who like them. I will make it again.

    this was great!

    Loretta from PA

    This is a great twist on the hamburger, noodle & cheese classic. I was interested tasting it because of the cinnamon, and almost skipped the capers. Don't, they really add to the dish. My only complaint, is that the serving sizes could not be changed, but since we really liked it, the leftovers are still welcome.

These Savory Parmesan Bread sticks are soft, tender and tasty. Freshly made and topped with parmesan and herbs, you'll never buy the canned bread sticks again. Goes great with any type of pasta dish with extra sauce to dip in.

    This was my 1st cheesecake, and boy, what a winner! I did change it up a bit.. I didn't like the choc grahams, so I used reg.. I also pre-bake my crust for about 5 min. I used Nestles "Awesome", Swirled Milk Choc & Carmel Morsels, instead of plain choc ones. What A Difference! SUPER!! I'm surprised they don't call for those anyways, I mean really.. It is a "turtle" cheesecake, Right!! I also cut a few up and used them on top.. instead of the mini chips. Enjoy!

    I baked this cheesecake for my co-worker's birthday. She said she loves anything with chocolate in it. And boy did this cheesecake have a lot of chocolate in it. It was delicious and there wasn't any left over, but I think there might've been too much chocolate in the recipe. It kind of tasted more like pie, than cheesecake.

    Absolutely The Best!!!

    Timothy Robertson from Shreveport, LA

    I've always wanted to make a turtle cheesecake so when i found this recipe i was quite intimidated. To my suprise, i found that it was quite simple to make, and this cheesecake turns out perfect everytime. At this point i've made this cheesecake about 3 or 4 times, and it's a big hit. I can't find chocolate graham crackers anywhere, so if you have this problem, just get a box of chocolate teddy grahams, crunch them up very well, or put them in a food processor. One box has just enough crackers for the crust, but i've found it helpful to add more butter. Hope it helps!

    This cheescake is totally amazing! I made it for my 2 boys and husband because we were invited to Thanksgiving dinner next week and I am bringing ham and dessert.

I better make 2! :-)

    YUM YUM!!!

    nelissa sierra from plano , TX

    Great cheese cake gets an A+. I was however confused that you didn't have to bake the crust so i ended up baking it for 5 minutes. You must use the chocolate/cream cheese filling right away as it will harden, and I only put 1 1/4 of chocolate morsels and 1 1/2 cup of cream cheese for more of the "white" filling. SOOOO GOOOD!!!! Got compliments from the very best! I'm making it again for our thanksgiving dinner!

    James Thibeault from Birch Run, MI

    I have had the pans to make cheesecake for some time, and finally settled on this one for my first one. Boy was I glad I did. This is a delicious and very rich cheesecake, that even looks good. I couldn't find chocolate graham cracker crumbs at the time, so I used regular graham cracker crumbs mixed with a few chocolate cookie crumbs, and it turned out great. If you love chocolate and cheesecake, you'll definitely like this one.

    "Death by Chocolate"!!

    Jamie Angelini from CENTREVILLE, MD

    This is the most amazing cheesecake I've ever eaten! Many of the reviewers here have spoken of the smoothness of this cheesecake but I would classify it with a consistancy between cheesecake and a very firm mousse. I made this a few days ago, and sent a piece to several of my neighbors. They're all begging for me to make it again. If you make only one cheesecake this year... let it be this one!

    This cheesecake is delicious, easy to make and the presentation makes you look like a star. I definitely earn points with my son-in-law when I bake this. This is my gold standard with Turtle Cheesecakes!

    Jason VanDerveer from Lake of the Ozarks, MO

    This was my first cheesecake, and EVERYONE loved it. We have a small diner and I gave it out to our regular customers as a thank you. Almost everyone said "Jason there is no way you made this" It was a huge success!

    Rich and Yummy

    Melissa Sommers from DOYLESTOWN, OH

    I made this cheesecake for a friend's birthday. Everyone commented on how beautiful and delicious it looked. One of the girls (very skinny and eats mostly only healthy food) had to try a piece....she loved it. Said it was one of the best cheesecakes she'd ever had - she will pay me to bake one for her on her birthday. Everyone thought it tasted amazing. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and it actually wasn't that hard to make. The problem I've had with every cheesecake I've made is that I can't get it off the bottom of the spring form pan. Next time I'm going to try using some parchment paper. Excellent recipe for cheesecake and chocolate lovers!

    Very Rich, but good

    L Venvertloh from FRISCO, TX

    I made this cheesecake because my father loves turtle cheesecake. It was fun to make together with my husband. I watched the videos on how to bake a cheesecake successfuly and it helped trifold! It was yummy, but very rich!

    Mmmmmmm

    Lori McInerney from Niantic, CT

    This cheesecake is beautiful to the eye. It is chocolate chocolate chocolate. Perhaps next time I can go with less chocolate filling. I'll divide the batter saving more of the original. Add a few less melted semi-sweet morsels to the remaining batter and whah lah. I assume it will make for a more marbled look. This recipe is excellent....BRAVO!

    Valentine Treat

    Melisa Agness from Nevada City, CA

    I made this cheesecake for Valentine's Day. I used regular graham crackers( had on hand)instead of chocolate. The lime does give the cheesecake a different flavor. It was good and easy but we have had better. If I make it again I would use less lime juice.

    Celebration or not

    Vicky Williams from ANDERSON, IN

    I first made this for a July 4th party, after that it was requested for EVERY get-together. Much easier than I expected. Didn't have mini-chips so I ran reg size chips through the chopper and they worked great. I liked that even better, more interesting to look at.
