Will we ever forget this month? I doubt it.
3/29 Apple Cinnamon Pancakes (CC Apr/May 17) Fussy and annoying recipe (or me?), but delicious.
3/14 Cast-Iron Apple Pie (ATK) Just filling and used stovetop method. Very good—no sugar only syrup and cider.
3/5 Banana Cinnamon Bundt Cake (KA) Made as two loaves—smallish, but fine. Good amt of chips. Moist, good banana taste. Cinnamon not strong. Did not make glaze.
3/28 Glazed Lemon Cookies (EF 5/09) Not what I expected (a soft cookie), but good.
3/19 Baked Apple-Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal (SL 10/19) Good, but more oatmeal-like than bake-like. Kinda dry, but tasty. Reheated with milk and this really was good--maybe I overbaked.
3/8 Everyday Chocolate Cake (SK) This took forever to bake. I would make it in the 9x5 next time, but good. Very chocolatey. Why bake at 325?
3/8 Antipasto Chopped Salad (CC 12/18&1/19) Tasty but not amped enough and now I see that I didn’t add the last bit of salt and pepper. Or maybe add olives?
3/2 Pork-Meatball Skillet Bake (MSL) Used my own marinara and mushrooms instead of peppers since that is what I had to use up. Pretty tasty! And was eaten at the potluck: always a bonus.
3/1 Apple Ricotta Pancakes (EW 9/19) Hard to flip, but fun. Needed more cinnamon sugar—maybe a cinnamon butter?

Hi Erin and Karen! I'm with you, what a time we are in.
Can I say your cooking sounds AMAZING! Do you ship?
I ate lots of salads, grain salads and brought in two slices of pizza more than a few times. Here's just a few since I wanted to join in.
Warm Quinoa Salad with Roasted Autumn Vegetables and Ginger Scallion Dressing (Flour Too cookbook) -- so good even with some changes. Definitely would make again.
Nacho Taters/Budgetbytes -- wanted to use up the bit of enchilada sauce I had, easy basic meal. I made a few changes based on what I had/wanted to use. I wanted a comfort type meal with melted cheese (yes!) so this worked great.
Avocado Chicken Salad (avariell/CLBB) --- excellent
Creamy Chili-Corn Soup with Chicken and Black Beans (Pam Anderson) -- I've made this one for years, I left out the chicken, and used only one can of creamed corn (like usual) and added a few other things. Freezes great. A great pantry type soup, since much of it just canned goods.
Orzo with Garlicky Spinach (CL) --- I had lots of spinach and didn't want to a salad, this was a nice change. www.myrecipes.com/recipe/orzo-garlicky-spinach

It's been so chaotic at work and getting used to working remotely, that I didn't even realize we were in April. Ugh.
I'm not sure why everything is mooshed together. Formatting in the edit post looks good, just not when it's final. Sorry about that...

"Irish Soda Bread Paul Hollywood's book of bread typo in the book - called for baking powder, not soda. Online it's baking soda."
Really? Good to know! (SAME EXACT AMOUNT, RIGHT?) Thanks! (And thanks for the recipes.)
Yum. You are making me want to pay more attention to Eating Well. (It's been awhile for me.)
Added: I have several ebooks of his. Just looked at "Soda Bread" in his Paul Hollywood's Bread -- appears corrected in ebook but this might be different than the one you made.
250g plain wholemeal flour
250g plain white flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
420ml buttermilkBUT WAIT!! i FOUND IT!! The goof is in his older book, 100 Great Breads -- I took this from his ebook. (I wonder how the rest of the recipes in this old book are...error-wise.)
Irish Soda Bread
500 g/ 1lb 2oz strong white flour, plus extra for dusting 20 g/ 3⁄4 oz baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
75 g/ 3 oz butter, softened
200 ml/ 1⁄4 pint buttermilk
150 ml/ 1⁄4 pint milk

Thanks so much to everyone who posted! Each month I look forward to see what you all report. This is one of my favorite things you all do for us!!
PS: Only one or two made? Post anyway. It's great to see what people made, even if it didn't pass muster. (Mustard.)
