Re:Campanelle with Butternut Squash and Herbed Breadcrumbs

Wonderful - a weeknight marvel, and if desired you could substitute evaporated skim milk for some of the cream, and also perhaps increase the broth a bit too.

Re:Summer Fruit Cobbler

This was a big hit with family and guests, used blueberries and plums first time, added some other random stone fruit the second time. It doubles beautifully - used a 9"x13"pan and cooked closer to an hour. The leftovers make great breakfast!

Re:Pork Chops with Sugar-Roasted Peaches, Fennel, and Cheddar Grits

This was a big hit at family dinner tonight. My changes: added half the butter called for to the grits, and no butter on the pork-chops after cooking. I held the hot sauce in the grits for the table since everyone's heat tolerance varies. I suggest cutting the fennel into slightly smaller pieces than called for - I preferred the taste/texture of the pieces that were more cooked. I used fresh rosemary for both the sugar roasted peaches and again in the chops. This combination will definitely be a repeater in our house.

Re:Fresh Pear Pie with Dried Cherries and Brown Sugar Streusel

I agree with other reviewers - too sweet as written, especially with the dried fruit. My pears (Bosc) were too hard after the given cooking time - home grown and perhaps just not ready yet. I could make future adjustments. I have used a ginger walnut streusel left over from a pumpkin pie - went really well with the pears. Obverall, pie was OK, but doubt I will make this again. I used the all butter pie crust from Rose Levy Berenbaum for blind baked crust - that was great.

Re:Chicken Braised with Red Wine Vinegar and Tomatoes

Just made this and really liked it - I mis-read the recipe and bought chicken breasts instead of thighs, but it turned out fine. I used 2/3 a very sharp homemade red wine vinegar and 1/3 fig balsamic vinegar -really nice sauce flavor. I doubled the chicken, and other ingredients, but not the tomatoes.

Re:Whole Wheat Challah with Apricots

Hi - not sure how the recipe is, but you may want to re-write the intro: recommending challah for Passover?!

Re:Bourbon Pumpkin Tart with Walnut Streusel

A definite keeper! Relatively easy to make, delicious, and holds up nicely as leftovers. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but might amp up the crystallized ginger a bit next time. Also, I "scrunched" the streusel mixture with my hands so it was a mix of larger and smaller chunks.

Re:Caramel Pumpkin Pie

A good "traditional" pumpkin pie; looks nice - I like the darker color - but kind of a pain to make the caramel, and not sure the end result is worth it.

Re:Gingerbread Biscotti

Easy and delicious - a really nice contrast to"classic" almond biscotti; I followed the recipe pretty exactly.
