Goodreads Review of Code of Honor

As President of the United States, Jack Ryan has faced many challenges, but none have been as personal as this and never has he been this helpless in the face of evil in the latest entry in Tom Clancy's #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Father Pat West, S.J. was a buddy of the young Jack Ryan when they were both undergraduates at Loyola University. Father West left a comfortable job in the philosophy department at Georgetown to work with the poor in Indonesia. Now he's been arrested and accused of blasphemy against Islam.

President Ryan is desperate to rescue his old friend, but he can't move officially against the Indonesians. Instead he relies on the Campus team to find out who is framing the priest.

There's one other twist to the story. President Ryan discovers a voicemail on his private cell phone from the priest warning about a coming attack against America...

Watershed’s Fresh Apple Cake With Caramel Glaze


Serves: 16

Hands On Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour and 55 minutes


1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 apples, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces (Winesap or Granny Smith recommended)
1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped pecans
2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
Pinch salt
1/2 cup heavy cream



To make the cake: Heat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour an 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

In a mixing bowl, beat both sugars and oil until very well-blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and gradually add to the sugar and eggs, mixing just until well-blended. Stir in the apples, pecans and vanilla, and pour into pan.

Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours (begin to check after 50 minutes), until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan while preparing the glaze.

To make the glaze: In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add both sugars and salt. Stir until blended and cook over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Stir in cream and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

With a skewer or toothpick, poke holes all over the top of the cake. Pour the glaze over the surface. Serve immediately.

About the recipe

Moist and succulent, this addictive apple cake, equally good warm or at room temperature, was shared by Chef Scott Peacock.

We used Ceylon brand cinnamon in this recipe.

WOW, Roy Kelley, this post, comments, and responses is filled with a wealth of information.  I am glad I did not miss it, Roy. Have a great day!  Love, love, love the flower.  And Clancy is quite a novelist.
