Welcome to the sixth installment of
Formerly Faceless Recipes. It's been a while coming. Other projects (the end of the school year and my son's birthday) have kept me pretty busy. I've also been kept busy nursing my husband back to health after
his dirtbike accident and surgery. We're still working on that one. He's coming along, but it will be a long while before he's completely healed. He is definitely becoming more able to get around and do for himself. That leaves me more time to cook
and blog about it. Since it's been a while, nearly a month since the last installment, I'll be doing two blogs a few days apart.
Chocolate Butter Cream II
Review: This recipe has major problems with the ingredients. As others have stated, the amount of milk required is not nearly enough. Assuming this is a typo, even 1 Tbsp. would not be enough. I used heavy cream as I had it on hand
and added a splash of vanilla extract. The final product tasted good, which earns it three stars - it would be inedible without more liquid.
Review: This is very good. I've never cooked quinoa before, but found I needed to add a good bit more liquid before it was completely cooked. The pesto add a wonderful flavor. I used homemade that I'd frozen previously. I will make
Dad's Kickin' Jamaican Wings, Mon
Review: These were very good, but I really expected the them to have more flavor and spice. I had some difficulty getting the sauce to mix in my blender. I had to add extra oil. Even then, it would have been difficult to dip the
wings and have any sauce left over. I marinated my wings in a freezer bag and removed all the air to allow the most contact with the marinade.
Mama D's Very Berry Margaritas
Review: This was delicious and simple to make. I rimmed the glass with sugar before serving. This was very refreshing and I will make it again! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Garlic Herbed Chicken
Review: I used fresh tarragon and completely ignored the foil (my fault - I seriously didn't read the recipe carefully). I used this as a marinade and soaked the chicken in it all day before grilling without the foil. I did not
brush with the mixture (partly because I soaked the chicken in ALL of it, and, well, I didn't read the directions.) My chicken was moist and delicious. Note: because I used it as a marinade, I added a little red wine vinegar. This is a great flavor combination
and I will use it again as a marinade.
Molasses Spice Muffins
Review: These are delicious! I had to make a substitution as I've never even seen dry buttermilk powder in my area. I used the standard vinegar and milk mixture in place of the powdered milk and water. My muffins were done in 23
minutes and were a hit! I will make these again.
Grandmother's Pound Cake II
Review: This is a great pound cake recipe. It is exactly what I expect from a pound cake - a dense, moist cake. It doesn't have any strong flavors. It is wonderful topped with berries and cream! I decreased the servings to 10 and
made just one loaf. Thanks for a great recipe.
Creme Anglaise I
Review: This is a simple and delicious dessert cream. I served it with pound cake and sliced strawberries. I will make this again.
