Slightly smaller than usual, this edition of
Formerly Faceless Recipes is packed with delicious recipes that use common ingredients. I love recipes that call for things I always have on hand, don't you?
Creamy Peppercorn Dressing
Review: I halved the recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. Well, okay, I might have had a heavy hand with the Parmesan. I grated a little too much and threw all of it into the dressing. This
reminds me of a favorite bottled dressing from the past. I haven't been able to find it around here for several years. I loved this and will definitely be making it again and again! Thanks for a great recipe!
Cheesy Zucchini Rounds
Review: These are very tasty. Do NOT add salt; there is plenty in the parmesan cheese and bacon. The recipe did NOT state how thick to slice the zucchini. I noticed that the thicker ones stayed
crisp, which I liked. The few that were sliced thinner became soft. I didn't actually measure the ingredients - just tossed the cheese on top. I added the bacon after melting the cheese. My bacon didn't need the extra time in the microwave. I might add a little
garlic powder the next time. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
Shells With Bacon and Beef Sauce
Review: This was a good, hearty meal. The sauce is four stars as written. After tasting it, I added freshly ground black pepper, and fresh parsley, oregano, and basil. Though the directions don't
say to, I drained most of the grease from the bacon mixture before adding it back into the sauce. I served this with a green salad and Mushroom and Cheddar Batter Bread by Cat Lady Cyndi. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
Rice With Lemon and Spinach
Review: My husband didn't like this, but I loved it! The lemon, spinach, and feta reminded me of dishes served a a local Greek festival each year. I was a little skeptical and thought this might
need some sort of sauce, but it really doesn't. This is a lighter, refreshing side dish.
Nutty Crispy Sugar Cookies
Review: These are addictive. I halved the recipe and followed it exactly. I was a little worried at first, as the dough is very oily before baking. The final product, though, is crispy outside,
chewy inside. I chopped my walnuts very finely. I also made some as drop cookies and others rolled in sugar (colored) as stated in the description. This worked very well without chilling the dough. I used my smallest cookie scoop which holds about a heaping
teaspoon. My half batch of dough made 72 cookies that baked in 12 minutes. I was expecting 30. Thanks for a keeper!
Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting
Review: This couldn't be simpler. I even screwed up and added the pineapple juice last (rushing) and it still turned out great. I did NOT add lemon extract as suggested in the reviews. The pineapple
flavor came through nicely without it. I halved the recipe and used this on Zucchini Cake II by Joan. Thanks for a simply delicious recipe!
Zucchini Cake II
Review: This is moist and delicious. I used some Splenda in place of sugar and used 1/2 cup applesauce in place of half the oil. I left out the nuts as I was taking this to a potluck and was unsure
of preferences. I will put them in the next time. I frosted with Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting by Candy Lady (1/2 recipe). Thanks for a great way to use up some zucchini!

As I've done before, I'm including this recipe to let people know how good it is
even though AR hasn't published it, YET.

Review: This is a delicious, hearty breakfast! I halved the recipe, but followed it almost exactly otherwise. I added a little less milk and a little more cranberries. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I'm sure I will make this
again and again!

*Okay, I'm really NOT that conceited. I was searching for a title, besides just FFR XVII, and
realized that I was
getting hungry just looking back over these pictures.
Except the shells picture. Hard to make that look pretty, lol. :)
