Welcome to Formerly Faceless Recipes XXIV.
Here are some great fall and winter recipes. Some I served for Thanksgiving dinner, some were formed of Thanksgiving leftovers, and some are just good comfort food!
Salmon Chowder
Very tasty chowder and so easy to put together! The bacon adds a wonderful
smoky flavor that pairs well with the salmon. Perfect on a cold fall evening.

Kickin' Portobello Dressing
(Thanksgiving side dish)
I really enjoyed this dressing. It's a bit nontraditional for us, but I loved the sweetness of the dried fruit with the herbs, mushrooms, and chicken stock. I baked my dressing outside the bird. Thanks for a tasty recipe!


Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms
(served these as a Turkey Day appy)
We loved these. I made them as an appy for our Thanksgiving dinner. I did have to make a substitution out of necessity - I couldn't find bacon flavored crackers anywhere. I used herb crackers (Sociables) and added some diced bacon to get the bacon flavor. I made these the night before and refrigerated, then added the cheddar cheese right before putting them in the oven. They did take longer to bake, but I believe this is due to being refrigerated. Thanks for a keeper recipe!

Apple Cranberry Crostada
(I didn't serve this on Thanksgiving, but next year I might!)
This is a simple, rustic dessert. It is delicious, as is. I may add some cinnamon the next time.
I used demerara sugar to top the crostada. Very tasty with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Two tasty ways to use up those Turkey Day leftovers...
Turkey-Cheese Macaroni Bake

This is a tasty recipe - basically macaroni and cheese with turkey thrown in. It could use a little garlic added in with the onions for a little more flavor. If I make this again I will also add some extra cheese.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Croquettes
my personal recipe, still unpublished
(as rated by AR members)
This recipe uses leftover mashed potatoes, veggies, dressing, and turkey to create a meal that you won't recognize as leftovers. Top with leftover gravy for Thanksgiving reinvented!

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.
