I've baked a lot from CI and the only recipe I didnt like was the coconut cake(march 2001). I make so many of their baked goods ( and savory recipes) over and over because they are really excellent. Here are some of my favorites.
Chicken fajita's ( fabulous, but I always add a bit of tequila to the marinade)
Spinach lasagna(bechamel based, will be making this again next week for a dinner party)
Tall and fluffy buttermilk biscuits( there is a pic of these in the biscuit thread)
Pineapple upside down cake( a friend told me this was the BEST pineapple upside down cake ever, better than his mom's)
German chocolate cake( pic on my blog)
Chicken, green bean mushroom stir fry along with the baked brown rice
Pan sauteed chicken breasts w/ sage vermouth sauce
spinach salad( pic on blog)
chocolate pots de creme( we made and served this at a former job)
multigrain bread( fabulous, makes 2 loaves)
scones( blueberry and maple oatmeal pecan)
Strawberry cream cake( YOU MUST MAKE THIS!!)
Big super nutty peanut butter cookies( just made these a few days ago, pic on my foodblog)
Lemon layer cake
Grilled pizza( omg, so good)
Baby back ribs
eta: NY style crumb cake
I love their bulletin board too( Hi Darcie!!). I learn a lot from the folks over there. The new issue is out and I want to try the Hummus, and the Berry fool along with the oatmeal snack cake( I think I'll make this today)
Ok, whose next? What have you tried and loved? Hated?
