Re:Pumpkin-Ginger Tunnel Cake

I took this to work, and it was virtually gone before noon. Everyone gave it very high compliments for flavor and moisture ( I had to bake it for almost 20 minutes longer than suggested in the recipe before the skewer came out clean, checking every 5 to 8 minutes after the 45 minute direction in the recipe). I use an oven thermometer, which indicated the temperature was correct. The suggestion to use a lightly oiled knife to finely chop the crystallized ginger was a big help. The one thing that did not work was creating a trough in half of the batter. The batter was not thick enough to create that trough, but no one cared, as they all loved the well distributed filling, as well as the cake. Even those who do not like pumpkin loved this cake. It is definitely one that I will make again. Several asked for the recipe, even the couple who do not like pumpkin pie.

Re:Shrimp & Cannellini Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette

Overall, I liked the recipe, but I liked it more with some changes that I made. For my taste, I added more chopped tarragon (a total of 3 tbs.) I used cherry tomatoes which I halved, added more garlic, and added chopped sun dried tomatoes for a little more depth to the tomato flavor. I like cheese, so I crumbled a little bit of feta cheese on top for a little tang. A very quick and easy recipe that is sure to satisfy.
