This is a fantastic recipe. I made it with homemade multigrain bread because I had it on hand, and the taste was still wonderful. I also made it with the tomatoes available at my farmer's market---not plum necessarily. I think if your tomatoes are extra juicy you may want to de-seed them or perhaps just add a tablespoon of flour to the mix, to hel"

This is the perfect dressing for a taco salad---mixed greens, black beans, avocado, tomato, and some chicken or turkey, and some baked tortilla strips. Mmmmm. I like to add 1/8 teaspoon of red pepper flakes for a little kick."

I made this last year and at the time there were many fewer reviews. I cannot believe how many good ratings this got! I thought it was so bland, even with the addition of more seasonings. I only used half of the potato mix and it was still far too much. A friend of mine actually we made it last year too, and we still joke today about how awful both...

This recipe was fantastic! I did not cover the ham, Quinn. Also to cookingmamastl---if you ever find yourself without peach nectar again, just make it. We used two large cans of peaches (you could use equivalent fresh) in juice, about a cup of sugar, and a cup of water. Put it all in a pot and reduce. Eventually you'll blend and put through a fine...

This cake turned out really well---so incredibly moist, but not soggy. My boyfriend's mother, known for eating rather healthily, had two slices. I used meedjol dates, which are (I think a lot sweeter than California dates, and so I was actually happy that I couldn't get all of the caramel to soak in. It was plenty sweet with just 2/3 of it.

I would really like to make this recipe but two cakes seems like a lot. Does anyone see a reason I cannot half it?"

Fantastic!!! I was out of wine so I had to walk to the store, and good thing I did as I could eat the whole bowl of it! Some chives and black pepper are a welcome addition. I had to add some additional wine to get the consistency I wanted.

I don't know if I just have an inordinately small muffin tin - but I ended up with double the popovers. The first pan I greased before I started making the popovers, but the second pan I had to grease at the last minute. Interestingly, the first rose much more. Also, they were done at around 27 minutes or so. Delicious, though. Very garlicky.
