Welcome to Formerly Faceless Recipes #50.
I'll start out with the Super Bowl munchies I served this year.
It was just the family, but we sure ate well enough!
Four of the seven recipes I served were faceless and tasty.

Blue Cheese Hot Wings!
These were very good. I was really hoping for more blue cheese flavor, but it didn't really come through. These did not become crispy in the allotted baking time, so I baked them a little longer, then a little less after dunking
in the sauce. We enjoyed these on Super Bowl Sunday.
Hot Clam Dip II
This was tasty, but could have used just a little more kick. I used Sourdough bread as that was all that was available (and I was too busy
to make my own). This is relatively quick to throw together, but the baking time is the killer - plan ahead. Toasting the extra bread is key here. Very yummy!
Country French Cheese
By: Art Walker
This is a very tasty combination of ingredients. The sweetness from the dressing works well with the salty bacon. I made half this recipe as I only needed a small cheese ball. The mixture is very
soft at first. I wrapped the ball in plastic wrap and refrigerated it for about an hour before rolling in the parsley and nuts.

Chili Con Queso Dip II
By: Kathleen Burton
I made half of this recipe and heated it in a small crock pot. This couldn't be quicker and simpler to put together. This one will be a
Now for the regular weeknight fare...
Tasty Bake Chicken
This is a good, simple recipe for a baked chicken breast. I made just two chicken breasts, but used the full recipe for the dressing mixture since they were quite large. I lifted the skin and
smeared some of the dressing underneath. The chicken was very flavorful and moist with a nicely crisp skin.
Skillet Chicken Pasta
Ketchup? I thought it sounded strange, but it worked. I took an extra step and blanched and peeled the tomatoes first. I used whole wheat pasta, and it worked very nicely with the sauce and veggies. Very tasty!
Eddie's Special Burgers
This is a good flavor combination. It hardly needs the dressing with all the flavors from the veggies and cheese. I put the cheese on the burgers and put a lid over them for a minute to melt
the cheese, then topped with the veggies. This did remind me of a Philly Cheese Steak.
Good, but very, very spicy. Don't get me wrong - I love spicy food. Maybe my peppers were extra hot, since I used home grown jalapeno peppers (canned). I may make these again, but will cut back on the peppers.
Easy German Chocolate Cake
By: Dawn Glenn
This was very tasty, but the edges baked up quite hard by the time the middle was done (which took longer than indicated in the recipe). The cream cheese filling blended nicely with the chocolate cake. This would have been a
bigger hit if the edges hadn't dried out.
Oat-Chip Banana Bread
By: Lisa Green
This was very tasty, but took a bit longer to bake than stated. Because of the added baking time, the edges of the bread were very dark. The inside was very moist and full of flavor. Strangely, this bread almost appeared to have
two layers when I sliced it. The bottom half was darker than the top. Very tasty.
South of the Border Chicken Soup
By: CORWYNN DARKHOLME
Tasty soup. This does need some additional seasoning. I didn't have the frozen mixed vegetables, so I used some frozen peas and corn and threw in some fresh celery and carrots. While this did have good flavor,
I didn’t really get “south of the border”.
Perhaps a bit more seasoning would have helped in that department.
These are tasty and very pretty little cookies. I stress "little" because I believe their is a mistake in this recipe. It instructs the baker to use 2 TBSP of dough for each cookie. Those would be huge cookies, and come nowhere
near the 36 servings indicated as other reviewers have mentioned. 2 tsp. is more like it. This amount of dough made 30 cookies, and each was filled nicely with the filling. I half expected the filling to spill over when baked, but it didn't. I did use just
one drop of food coloring and the color was just right. I am a little puzzled about the name of these as there is really nothing creamy about them. These would be a nice green dessert for St. Patrick's Day, especially with a bit of green color added to the
366 recipes and counting!
Perfect number for February of a leap-year,
don't you think?
