We started out the night with Morgan's Honey Spread. She came into this swearing we would hate it. She almost didn't bring it thinking for sure we would think it's awful. Well, she was wrong. So wrong in fact that she ended up in 2nd place for her dish. It was quite tasty with all the different components incorporated such as dates, olives, feta cheese, nuts, and, of course, honey. She served it with toasted (but "hard"...according to Kim...ha!) pita chips.

Next up was Cara and her Pear, Honey, and Goat Cheese Crostini. This dish was an immediate hit. I'm beginning to think there is a goat cheese theme here. Kim came in second with her Pistachio Goat Cheese Grapes. I came in second with the Goat Cheese and Basil Oil with baguettes. And, now, Cara came in first with her Pear, Honey, and Goat Cheese crostini. Congrats to Cara for her win. They were delicious!!

We ended the night with my homemade doughnuts. Unfortunately, the glaze on my chocolate doughnuts ended up being a bit too sticky. As a matter of fact, Morgan was caught with a small glob of the glaze on her tooth. However, the honey and powdered sugar glaze was much more successful. Even though the doughnuts didn't do too well at the iron chef; they were a hit at my work and they really are best right out of the hot oil. I will post the recipe soon!
