      A more interesting topic might be which CI or ATK recipes did you dislike. I don't like their mac 'n' cheese recipe or their zucchini bread recipe.

        Wasn't thrilled with their cornbread either.

      I make the skillet ziti quite frequently, and generally use their method of cooking dried pastas in sauce. I also loved the cheese lasagna (don't recall if it is 3 cheese or 4 cheese). That one is very, very rich, though.

        The chocolate chip cookies made with browned butter are very popular at my house.

          Ooh! Those cookies are so good, they should be illegal!

          Hot and sour soup. We make it LOTS, although we use black vinegar and sub in dried lily buds for what I'm remembering as a balsamic/other vinegar approximation and bamboo shoots. What a delicious recipe.

            I'll be making Summer Vegetable Gratin up until the first frost.
