I'll cut to the chase and get straight to
Oatmeal Cherry Walnut Cookies
By: Chef Doogie
These turned out really good -crisp outside and chewy inside. I did use the dried cherries. They're perfect in this recipe. The one thing that was off with this recipe, for me at least, was the order of addition of the ingredients.  I chose to do a more traditional method of mixing. I added the vanilla and milk to the wet ingredients, then added the salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon with the flour.
Shrimp Brochette
Delicious! I had a bit of a heavy hand with the seasoning so mine were really spicy, but they were still amazing. I used double skewers so I had to thread mine differently. I also used a half slice of bacon around each shrimp due to their size and the type of bacon I was using. I will make these again!
Yeah, I know it's a lobster.
Onion Meat Relish
By: sal
This was good. I served this relish with hot dogs. It added nice variety to our cookout. The onions took much longer to soften than the directions indicated and were still chunky (not really spreadable) when finsihed. 
Lemon Dill Salad Dressing
This dressing is simple to make, is the perfect consistency, and tastes very good. It is definitely tangy, but the lemon isn't overpowering. The dill flavor was understated, but definitely there. This was a nice change from  my usual dressing.
Thanks to Scotdog for suggesting this one!
Mediterranean Roast Vegetables
By: anonymous
 I took the submitter's suggestion and used vegetables I had on hand. I used sweet red pepper, zucchini, and vidalia onion. I chose not to use potatoes as I was already serving rice with my meal. I drizzled on just enough oil to coat the veggies before roasting. I used white balsamic vinegar, but only used a small amount. Even that amount threatened to overpower the vegetables. I halved this recipe AND skipped the potatoes and this still made a good bit - more than two servings. Because I was roasting a chicken, I needed to roast these veggies at 350 F. After one hour mine were done perfectly at that temperature.
Asparagus Cheese Soup
By: Donald Laugherty
This was exceptionally good. I followed the recipe exactly and was pleasantly surprised. It's quick and simple to make and very flavorful. This soup was wonderful for a first course, but would work with with some crusty bread and a salad as a meal.
Irresistable Raspberry Buttermilk Dumplings
Tasty, but very, VERY sweet. If I make these again, I will cut down on the sugar and add more lemon juice. If the lemon was meant to add any tarness, there isn't nearly enough to do the trick. These are very simple to make. I did need to add some extra buttermilk to make my dumpling dough soft enough. Flipping the dumplings was a little tricky because they were very crowded in the pan.

Like you, I enjoy making faceless recipes. The reason is so that I don't try to post pics on the ones I have already made before! I love looking at your pics!
Jul. 22, 2011 5:27 pm

I don't mind, Karen. I have a LOT of photos on here. You can check them out any time. We're not quite sure what breeds Oliver is mixed with, but he's definitely part boxer and part rottweiler. There could be some terrier in the mix somewhere. :)

Another good one Pam! Thanks for the read, and keep 'em coming!

Those dumplings look amazing. But I did look at the recipe - HOLY MOLY 4 1/2 cups of white sugar! If you do end up playing with the recipe let us know how it goes. I am always hesitant to seriously alter a recipe. Anybody think that 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda baking blend might work?

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.
