In Search of...

Do you ever find yourself in a rut trying to plan out meals? Do you feel like you keep making the same thing over and over again? There are times that I feel the need to shake
things up in the meal planning department so I go looking for "faceless" recipes. I must admit, I've had some good and not so good luck with the good out weighing the bad.
Pam-3BoysMama that got me hooked on searching for these. It was her that coined the term "faceless" and wrote incredible blogs that were animated and cleverly done by photographing, reviewing and turning
faceless recipes into "formerly faceless" recipes . She posted some of my favorite blogs here on Allrecipes and I truly hope she resumes her blogs.
I'm not trying to take up the roll of faceless blogs after her, nor could I ever do faceless blogs as well as her. I just want to say how much I
enjoy finding faceless recipes and I want to thank her for my latest addiction on Allrecipes.com.
I never really gave faceless recipes much of a thought until I read her blogs and began a search of them. While searching for faceless recipes I've
definitely found some keepers.
Here's one I truly gave a face to.
I have also found some interesting ones that are quite good such as these. (Actually Baking Nana directed me to this one). Can you tell I like spicy?
This month I've stumbled across a few more that were quite good and filed them under my TNT folder.
Skintastic Baked Potatoes
I honesty wasn't sure about this one when I made it but what a surprise. This recipe is addictive and even better the next day.
Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasoning
My immediate thought when I saw this recipe was to make popcorn with the chipotle oil. Well, I did and wow, what a great batch of spicy popcorn. Definitely a keeper.
Homemade Chipotle Oil
It is my understanding that there are over 9,000 recipes that don't have faces and the list continues to grow. With the thought
in mind of shaking up my meal planning, I'm still in search of recipes without a face and I'm looking forward to new found keepers.
