Here we go again. Some may noticed I changed my blog from "Buttered Noodles" to "So Many Recipes, So Little Time." It just seems to fit better since I began writing Formerly Faceless Recipes. So here goes installment
Do you ever find yourself buying an ingredient for a recipe, then trying to find uses for the leftovers?
Happens to me all the time! That's why you'll often see a repeat ingredient, like coconut milk or salad shrimp, in the recipes I choose for this blog.
Let's get started!
Nutty Fresh Strawberry Salad
Review: This salad was absolutely delicious! I don't know that the dressing really needs to be refrigerated for six hours. I also don't think I will use butter to
toast the almonds the next time - I'll just use a dry skillet. That said, it's wonderful as is!
Natalie's Coconut Spice Elixir
Review: I wish I could give this more than 3 stars. I was able to drink most of it but it had a gritty texture, especially toward the bottom, that was a bit off-putting. I did finely grind my flax seeds.
The taste was okay, but the nutmeg (I used freshly ground) was a bit overpowering.
Milk Powder Candies
Review: I cut this recipe to 20 servings, but followed the directions otherwise (at first). What I had was more of a batter than a dough. I let it sit for about 15 minutes and it firmed up a little. It was
still not thick enough to roll. I didn't want to add more confectioners' sugar or powdered milk. I decided to add flaked coconut. After adding about a cup, the dough was finally firm enough to roll. It was still sticky, so I used a cookie scoop and dropped
the balls into the sugar, then rolled them. They do firm up in the refrigerator and make a very tasty treat.
Vinegar and Egg Crust
Review: This is really flaky and delicious. I happened upon this recipe by accident and decided to give it a try. You definitely won't need all the liquid. I will definitely use this recipe again!
Peach Custard Pie I
Review: Is there milk left out of this recipe? A custard, by definition, is made with milk and eggs. When I made the egg mixture, I could see right away it would not adequately cover the peaches. I added 1/4 cup of cream and it still
just barely covered them. The pie has a good flavor, though, and disappeared quickly. I may make it again with my alteration.
Quick Shrimp Scampi Pasta
Review: I am rating this recipe as made using the submitter's suggestions in her review. This is a quick and delicious meal. I used fresh basil instead of dry since I have a garden full of it at the moment. My first thought when
I read the recipe was "It's missing garlic. It's not scampi." Why do the Allrecipes editors make drastic changes to submitted recipe? My tip: follow Noelle's directions in her review. They're spot on! Thanks, Noelle, for a great recipe!
Shrimp Deviled Eggs
Review: These were delicious and make such a pretty presentation. I topped each one with a whole tiny shrimp and a small parsley leaf. Even better the next day!
Shrimp and Dill Deviled Eggs
Review: These were good, but the filling was a little too soft. I would cut back the mayo a bit and add more as needed. The combination of lime juice and dill was a tiny bit overpowering after being refrigerated overnight.
Pesto Shrimp Sandwich
Review: I followed the recipe as written using homemade pesto. This is a delicious sandwich. I loved it and I will definitely make it again! Thanks for a great recipe!
Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
(Okay, this wasn't faceless - I just love it so much I had to include it!)
Review: Fabulous! Simple! Delicious! I did cut the sugar by about half. I used homemade raspberry vinegar (Raspberry Vinegar I from this site). My dressing was very
pink in color from the vinegar.
Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies
My personal recipe - still working out the kinks. I think I need to lower the baking temp to 325 as the brownie base came out a little dry. If anyone would like to check out the recipe and make suggestions,
I'm open to all. (They do taste good, though.)
