Welcome to Formerly Faceless Recipes - 10
Why wait? Let's get started!
Quick Tartar Sauce
5 Stars
Review:  I reduced this recipe to two servings, but otherwise followed it exactly. It is definitely quick, and very tasty. I always have these ingredients on hand, so I will use this recipe again and again! If you prefer your tartar sauce with a dill flavor, just use dill relish instead of sweet. I served this with Cod Fish Cakes from Allrecipes.  Thanks for a great recipe.

Raspberry Peach Cobbler
5 Stars

Review:  This is quick and easy to put together. I was skeptical about the amount of butter melted in the dish, but it really baked into the dough and made it absolutely scrumptious! I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 baking dish. Mine was completely baked in 38 minutes as a result. I served this with vanilla ice cream and Raspberry Sauce from Allrecipes. Delicious!

Island Smoothie
4 Stars

Review: This tasted good - it reminded me of coconut rum and pineapple juice - but it really wasn't a smoothie. It separates very quickly after being poured. I followed the recipe exactly (at first) and this easily made two servings. After the first glass, I added additional ice, but it didn't really help much. I dipped the rim of the glass in coconut milk and shredded coconut for a tropical touch.

Roasted Sherry Duck
3 Stars
Review:  Be advised before trying this recipe that the cooking time is very wrong. It should be 30 minutes per POUND, not per half-pound. A four-pound duck would be done in about 2 hours. If you roast the duck according to the recipe, you will end up with charcoal. My 5 1/2 lb. duck was done in just under 3 hours. I did need to add water to the roasting pan after the first two hours to prevent burning. This was the first duck I ever prepared. It was okay, but I probably won't make this again. Nothing personal - I guess I'm just not much of a duck fan. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Maritime Blueberry Buckle
5 Stars
Review: This is so delicious, quick, and simple! It's a wonderful dessert or breakfast. Mine took a little longer to bake. I'm sure I'll be making this again!

Pineapple Scones
5 Stars
Review: While the dough is very sticky, the finished product is absolutely delicious. These are tender and light. I used an ice cream scoop, almost full, to portion the dough. Mine needed a few extra minutes to bake, but I was using AirBake cookie sheets and parchment paper. I juiced the orange after zesting and mixed some of the juice with powdered sugar to make a glaze. I added toasted coconut to a few and the combination was out of this world. (They are great as is, also. Scones are often served with jam.) Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
Banana and Black Bean Saute
4 Stars
Review: I kept stumbling on this recipe while doing ingredient searches. Since I had all of the ingredients, I gave it a whirl. It was certainly interesting, but a little on the sweet side and very soupy despite using less than half the coconut milk.
South of the Border Wraps
4 Stars
Review: I halved this recipe and followed it with just one substitution - I only had a Monterey Jack/Cheddar blend. The trick is to fry the first side long enough to ensure they don't fall apart. These are good, but I needed extra salsa on top for the full effect. Thanks for sharing a tasty recipe!
Strawberry Chantilly
5 Stars
Review: I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 baking dish. This is very easy and very tasty. I used lime juice as I had fresh-squeezed juice left from another recipe. I also baked the extra crumbs in a separate baking dish for a crunchier topping. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I have fresh blueberries my dad grew. I'm totally going to try the Blueberry Buckle!! Yum- beautiful pics, as usual :)
Jul. 2, 2010 5:35 pm
I had just printed the recipe for the blueberry buckle I'll make it for sure now! Your chantilly came out beautifully decadent looking. Too bad about the duck, I am not sure that was the best recipe, so don't write it off completely. Thanks for another wonderful blog.

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.
