Salted Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake

As promised, I have returned with a recipe from the Philadelphia recipe booklet I got in the mail the other day.
I've had such a craving for this ever since I saw it.
Perhaps when I'm done with this crazy string of nights I'll make a date with my kitchen and get to work.
I did make banana bread (with wheat germ which was such a good decision) yesterday night and it was nice to bake again.
I hope I get right back into it for the holidays.
Tonight at work things seem to finally have settled down.
One patient (very confused and paranoid) accused me of abusing him when I was trying to run the air out of his g-feed and then he threatened to break my neck when I told him I was going to start running the feed again.
(The man weighs maybe 75 lbs so the threat is kind of an empty one but it still hurt my feelings. I had just sat with him for a long time and listened to his concerns about being given medication that he thinks people are using to control I felt betrayed that he claimed I was abusing him!)
Anywhoooo he let me flush his g-tube and reposition him so I guess we're friends again.
And without further ado - here's the recipe!
