Definitely quick, but I made a few mistakes...first batch I turned out of the pan and they fell all over the place (nuts flying off). Second batch I was smarter--put a cutting board over the top of the pan, THEN turned the pan over holding the board to the top. MUCH better. These are certainly not sweet, since the dough is bread dough, but they do...

I can't get enough of this! SO delicious...and we substitute fat-free greek yogurt instead of 2%. Yummy, creamy, make-ahead breakfast--and the make-ahead is the best part. This is my daughter's specialty, and the whole family enjoys her (minimal!) effort the next morning.

Very yummy, if not a little too sweet (so of course the kids love them!). I did spray the pan first because I was afraid of sticking, and they came out easily. This is a very simple recipe, and I love that in the heat of summer there is no need to use your oven. Tastes like a combination of a buckeye and a peanut butter cup, so you really can't go...

This was both delicious and beautiful....the fresh herbs with the squash made for a beautiful presentation. Unlike the other reviewer, I found the squash, cut small, lended a creamy richness with the pasta water and parm cheese. One of my favorite meals--can't wait to make again!

Ok flavor and pretty, but dry and dense. Probably won't make again---cranberries, cooled, did stay beautifully in center, but cake was dense and dry, even when served with coffee. served the second day by slicing and brushing with Triple Sec to add some moisture.

Very good flavor, and beautiful to the eye. Just had a bit too much dressing it seemed--shouldn't have put it all on. But seeing the grill lines on the potatoes, and those red onions are so delicious grilled! Yummy!"

Delicious--used leftover grilled split chicken breasts; short on time, so added lemon juice and mustard to Hellman's olive oil mayo rather than making homemade mustard, but followed the rest of recipe with all of the fresh herbs (delicious!), shallots, etc. This is the ONLY chicken salad recipe I have ever liked. looking forward to trying it again"

This dish was AMAZING--my family all loved it. My youngest daughter asked if it was really "ALL we were having for dinner??" (wondering where the beef was, I guess!) and also thought she would never eat a zucchini. Turns out, my kids had seconds--and on the zucchini, too! This was so easy , largely because you cut the food into large wedges before"
