5 Stars
This is a very moist, tender, delicious roast chicken. The potatoes and onions were a great addition. I will definitely be making this again. 
5 Stars
I loved this one. I served it with rice pilaf and stir-fried vegetables for a delicious meal.
4 Stars
Super simple to make and very tasty. My chicken was not dry, but my asparagus was still pretty crunchy. I think I'll steam it for a few minutes next time. Mine took a little longer to cook - about 7 extra minutes.
5 Stars
I followed this recipe exactly, but made only half as much. I was planning to marinate overnight, but ended up marinating about 36 hours (love those really long baseball games). My flank steak was tender and delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!
5 Stars
I threw coarse salt and whole black peppercorns in my spice grinder, then added the lime zest (I dried my own overnight on waxed paper). This was simple to make and tasted wonderful in a lemon pepper grilled chicken recipe.
3 Stars
I really had high hopes for this recipe, but it just didn't turn out the way I'd hoped. The lemon flavor wasn't strong, but the amount of butter and sesame seeds seemed excessive. I couldn't really get the seeds to toast (I've always toasted seeds in a dry pan before). When I poured the sauce over the asparagus, the seeds just clumped together on top. I will have to adjust this recipe as I like the idea. I plan to cut back on the butter and sprinkle dry, toasted sesame seeds on top after adding the sauce.
5 Stars
This was wonderful and so easy! My husband, who doesn't like cornbread as a rule, loved this. The bacon really does something special for this. Mine was done at the 20 minute mark. Definitely a keeper!
4 Stars
This tasted good, but had a slightly odd consistency for me. I will probably make this again, but I think I will freeze the fruit before blending to help thicken the shake.
5 Stars
This is fabulous! I made it exactly as stated in the recipe, but only made one serving. I used fresh pineapple since I had it on hand. I will definitely make this one again!
5 Stars
Simple, delicious, and sugar free. Perfect for my diabetic husband and myself. This is so refreshing on a hot, steamy day!

5 Stars
This is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and had great results. The pineapple juice does make it sweet, but that's what pineapple juice does. This is a great combination of flavors and will definitely be made again. Thanks for a great recipe, Witchywoman!
4 Stars
This is good, but I'm still not sure I like the celery with the fruit. That's just me. I found myself leaving the celery in the bowl. I substituted pepitas for sunflower seeds as I had them on hand and used red grapes instead of green for the same reason. Very tasty recipe.
3 Stars
This was just okay for me. I guess I expected to like it more. After refrigerating, the pudding mixture started to separate. I thought the chocolate layer was a little overpowering.This was just okay for me. I guess I expected to like it more. After refrigerating, the pudding mixture started to separate.

 Delicious! Moist and flavorful. Mine took a little extra time to bake - about 5 minutes. This one is a keeper!
I hope you've found at least one new recipe to try.
Thanks for dropping by!

May 17, 2010 5:25 pm
Definitely going to try the Banana Coffee Cake!
May 17, 2010 5:26 pm
You may have had a few less than 5 star recipes there, but you made them all look like 5 star. Nice job as usual. Thanks!
May 17, 2010 7:06 pm
Good heavens, it's a smorgasbord. Lots of great recipes to try. Pics look wonderful!
May 17, 2010 8:11 pm
Wow! Great job, everything looks great.
May 18, 2010 5:22 am
Great looking pics!
May 18, 2010 6:14 am
great pics Pam, it all looks so good, I often choose a recipe b/c it has a pic over how it was rated. Thanks for giving me a few more to look at:)
May 18, 2010 8:51 am
what a great idea on the cornbread...kind of one of those "why didn't I think to do that"?.....everything looks great as usual and I believe I'll give a few of these a go myself. Shrimp looks devine......not to be confused with deveined :D
May 18, 2010 10:37 am
Thanks everyone! Fortunately, Avon, the shrimp were deveined as well as devine! lol
May 18, 2010 10:43 am
Beautiful pictures. I love your blog.
May 18, 2010 10:49 am
Now I want that bacon cornbread and to make the lime pepper! Good job, I like your new adventures :)
May 18, 2010 10:57 am
I love your 'formerly faceless' blogs! Keep 'em coming! :)(PS, just 'subscribed' to your blog! ;)
May 18, 2010 11:04 am
Again, I am LOVING this idea! I've always leaned toward the faceless recipes, too, but my pics aren't as good as yours! ;) I will definitely be trying some of these recipes, thanks to you - the Lime Pepper is a great idea, and one that I would use often. Nice job, Pam!
May 18, 2010 11:12 am
Great job!
May 18, 2010 12:45 pm
Because of your pictures I saved several of these recipes. Great idea.
May 19, 2010 11:15 am
great blog again, I love your pictures and this idea. I'm trying the roasted chicken tonight, thank you. Keep up the great cooking!
May 20, 2010 6:58 am
This is a great idea - I've started trying to make recipes that have no or few reviews (which is scary but fun!), but having a good photo makes all the difference when choosing a recipe! Great photos!
May 20, 2010 7:22 am
You are awesome and you got the layers right in the sedation!! I love the picture...great job and thanks for the rating!! I was going to take a picture, but I didn't have the stuff on hand to make it...even buying the airplane shot bottles, it's still close to $10 to buy all that stuff, but it's so worth it!!
May 20, 2010 11:08 am
witchywoman - I LOVED the sedation! About a year ago I decided to stock my bar (the really high cabinet above the kitchen pantry, lol) so I had all the liquor. Wouldn't you know I had everything BUT the OJ when I wanted to make it. (I never run out of OJ...) I had to dig through the freezer and mix up some from frozen concentrate. As for the layers - I just followed your directions. :) It's a pretty and tasty drink!
May 20, 2010 4:03 pm
Everything looks amazing, saved several of the recipes. How FUN! Thanks for preparing and sharing these great recipes.
May 20, 2010 6:31 pm

May 20, 2010 9:47 pm
GREAT BLOG! I have never been a blog reader till I had Luigi. Didnt know what I was missing! Cant wait to try some of these recipes....and your photos are excellent as well!
May 21, 2010 9:50 am
This was the best idea ever! I am so much more likely to try a recipe if I can see the picture. Maybe this summer (I'm a teacher) I'll try to add some pics of my own! Thanks, there's lots of recipes I'm going to try!!! :-)
May 21, 2010 11:24 am
YUM! Everything looks amazing!
May 21, 2010 1:54 pm
Those look so delicious!
May 21, 2010 2:51 pm
Awesome blog! I loved it!
May 21, 2010 6:02 pm
Pam, your blog Rocks! So cool:) I never thought of blogging to give these faceless recipes a nice photo and Life. Thank you, so cleaver of you!!
May 22, 2010 6:50 am
Been quite busy for the last couple of weeks, so I'm sorta late to the party - but boy was the visit worthwhile! Thanks a whole large massive bunch!
May 22, 2010 2:18 pm
Oh my goodness, everything looks totally gorgeous...
May 22, 2010 3:11 pm
Thank you!!! I have added several recipes to my box:)
May 22, 2010 7:06 pm
I'm glad everyone seems to be enjoying these recipes. It's a lot of fun making and photographing them. I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to do the next one. Things are somewhat on hold at the moment between end of the school year preparations, baseball, and my husband's shoulder injury and upcoming surgery/recovery. I'll be back with another "episode" when things settle down a bit. :)

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
