Raspberry Pretzel Cheesecake

This is just so good. Originally, it's supposed to be a salad. But it's totally not a salad. It's a dessert, like a cheesecake dessert.
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (6 ounce) package raspberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 (16 ounce) package frozen raspberries

Notes / Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix together the pretzels, 1/4 cup sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for no more than 10 minutes. Set aside to cool completely. In a medium bowl, beat the sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. In a medium bowl, stir together the gelatin mix and boiling water. Mix in frozen raspberries, and stir until thawed. Pour over cream cheese mixture in pan. Refrigerate until completely chilled, at least 1 hour.

*If using thawed raspberries, cool jello until it sets a little before pouring it over the cream cheese layer. You want to avoid liquids spilling down into the pretzel layer so that it will stay crisp.

French Toast

This recipe is an original of mine. I've liked it so much over the years that I've never felt a need to find another recipe. It's flavorful and simply delicious. Hope you like it too!

5 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 loaf of bread

Heat skillet to medium heat. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend till mixed through. Pour into a container. Dip both sides of the bread into the mixture and brown each side on a greased skillet. Swirl the mixture periodically to keep cinnamon and nutmeg from settling at the bottom of the container.
