It's not as easy to find time to try a lot of new recipes since school has started, but here's the latest installment of Formerly Faceless Recipes:
My Kid's Favorite Zucchini Bread
Review: This is a simple, delicious, basic zucchini bread recipe. The result is moist and tender. You could easily add raisins, nuts, or other ingredients to suit your own taste.
Tip: to take the moisture out of the zucchini, toss it with 1/2 tsp of salt and set it in a colander over a bowl for about 10 minutes. Press on the zucchini to remove the liquid. Cut back the salt in the recipe to 1/2 tsp.
Bob's Blue Cheese Dressing
Review: This is a simple and delicious alternative to bottled dressing. I did add a little milk to thin it out a bit, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing!
Mozzarella Basil Bread
Since I posted my photos of this recipe, CC and Kathleen have also posted beautiful pictures.
Review: This bread is absolutely delicious! I used fresh basil (triple the amount) since I have a seemingly endless supply in the garden. I otherwise followed the recipe exactly.
I did have to add in at least an extra cup of flour during kneading. The recipe makes two LARGE loaves. My husband and oldest son loved this one. Thanks for sharing!
Refreshing Blueberry Soda
Review: I followed this recipe exactly, including the basil. I tried the finished soda, then ended up straining the mixture through a sieve to remove the excess bits of blueberry
skin and tiny seeds. This made the soda more visually appealing as well as easier to drink. This is very tasty and the basil adds a delicious twist!
Caramel Frosting III
Review: This is a very tasty caramel frosting. I did add 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. The recipe didn't state how much to add, but this amount seemed sufficient.
Blackberry Jam Cake II
Review: This is a very moist and tasty cake. I didn't really notice the chocolate flavor so much. I used homemade blackberry jam I made earlier this summer. I did notice the larger
pieces of fruit in the jam did migrate to the bottom, but the cake itself took on a slightly purple hue from the preserves. One negative for me was that the cake didn't rise in the center. I'm not sure if this was due to the amount of mixing to incorporate
all of the ingredients. I did make half the recipe and baked it in an 8" square pan. It tested done at 40 minutes despite the sunken center. I topped this with Caramel Frosting III.

Okay, so I gave it 5 Stars, but
SouthernGma did too!
Fall Festival Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

I love these. I'd have to or the recipe wouldn't be sitting in recipe limbo waiting to be published. If you can find pumpkin, these are worth a try!
