ATK banana bread and chicken/dumplings or other?

I have read on a few sites about the ATK banana bread and chicken/dumplings recipes being great. Anyone tried them out, what about compared to Ina Garten's?

    I made the banana bread recipe from the ATK Family Cookbook (not sure if it's the same one you're talking about - this recipe calls for yogurt) not too long ago and it was among the best I've ever made. Moist, not bland, generally delicious. And now I have to make it again. Mmmm.

      I don't know America's Test Kitchen's recipe. But when I want Banana Bread, this is what I make. It is also called Wendy's Secret Banana Cake. But I make it in a loaf pan, and when I do, it's Banana Bread. When I make it in round layer pans, it's Banana Cake. You can also make it in a Bundt pan. No matter what you call it, it's melt in your mouth moist and delicious. The best I've ever had. I use sour cream not yogurt.

          It's a good recipe. The only thing I noticed is this poster at Our Patisserie goes a little heavy on the whipping. So below is a link to the thread where the recipe originally came from. Just keep it simple.
