I began writing these blogs over two years ago in April 2010. (I didn't start calling them Formerly Faceless until later, though.) 

401 recipes and many blogs later.....

welcome to Formerly Faceless Recipes #54.

Tennessee Rubdown

By: Jack Harris

The spices in this rub provide depth of flavor and a little heat for kick. I used this on thick-cut bone-in pork loin chops. Thanks for a tasty recipe!

Orange Vinaigrette Dressing

By: LaurasFaves

Very light and tasty - this dressing is ideal for a summer salad. It's a little on the thin side, but there is no "thickener" in this recipe, so that's to be expected and actually allows you to use less of it.

Big James' Pork Rub

By: mccabepurcell  

This rub is quick to throw together and tastes great. I used it on baby back ribs and it really gave the meat a wonderful flavor. Ignore the calories and servings on this recipe. I had a lot left over after coating a full slab of ribs on both sides.

Heirloom Blueberry Cake

By: AuntieJ

I halved this recipe and baked it in an 8x8 pan.  Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.  Even with the smaller cake, it still took the full baking time to test done. This is a nice, moist, classic blueberry cake.  We enjoyed it with a little whipped cream and additional fresh berries.

(There were other photos posted of this recipe the same day I posted mine. Honestly, it was faceless when I made it. I wanted to be sure to include it because it is so delicious!)

Homemade Blueberry Pie Filling

By: Misterspiffy

This is quick and simple to throw together. I intended to use it as a topping for a cheesecake, but it got cloudy upon cooling. I ended up changing my plan as a result. I’ll be making some mini pies to use up the filling.

Italian Cheesecake Cookies

By: Rita

Yes, these are more of a crustless cheesecake bar than a cookie. Can we just get past that now? Okay. These are tasty. I quartered the recipe but otherwise followed the directions, including the baking time. My baking dish was slightly larger than 1/4 of a 9x13 dish, but the cookies were a little on the soft side. I topped them with cherry pie filling.

Delicious Spinach Salad

By: Silvestra

This is a tasty and simple salad. I left out the olives as we don’t care for them. I also used slivered almonds as I had them on hand and pine nuts are so incredibly expensive. The dressing is a little on the tart side, but has a nice, fresh taste. I enjoyed the addition of the feta cheese as well.  This was a great use of my fresh garden spinach.

You do such a wonderful job on your blogs & the photos are great! Pam - you are indeed an inspiration. I am glad you found so many keepers. I must try those rubs, they sound great.
Jul. 11, 2012 6:41 am
Your photos are beautiful...makes the recipes more tempting! Good job!
Jul. 11, 2012 7:24 am
Hello Pamela! STELLAR photos. I love the bling in your blogs, too. Something I found out when a recipe gets published the photos are removed. I sometimes read recipes and think-I would like to make that, but it would be too much to eat. I like your idea of making 1/2 of the recipe and will put it to good use. Thanks!
Jul. 11, 2012 8:06 am
I get inspired to try recipes when I see such nice photos...thank you for your Blog...I look forward to it.
Jul. 11, 2012 9:48 am
Great job, Pam! Always enjoy your beautiful pictures and helpful reviews!
Jul. 11, 2012 3:08 pm
Another great blog. I actually logged in to AR because I have half a large container of ricotta I want to use before it spoils. Now I don't have to search. Those cheese cake bars are my answer. Thanks again for all your great blogs.
Jul. 11, 2012 3:38 pm
I just love your blog's, you do such a great job. Thank you for taking all of the guess work out of it for recipes that I want to try, but don't know where to start.
Jul. 12, 2012 3:25 pm

Jul. 13, 2012 10:48 am
Amazing feat kid! Great photos and a terrific blog. Wish I could do the fancy graphics you do:)
Jul. 13, 2012 8:40 pm
I just love your blogs Pam! I second what Jan said (CookingUpAStorm) You've been faithful to continue your mission of providing "faces" for the "faceless." Beautiful photos too! I've got tons of Blueberries and always looking for recipes. I'll be trying that BB Cake recipe for sure. Thank you.
Jul. 13, 2012 10:35 pm
Your blogs are always so interesting! Nice pictures and very delicious looking!!

Wonderful blog! I love the photos!! Can't wait to try a couple of these!
Jul. 15, 2012 11:39 am
Pam, always a treat reading your blogs!
Jul. 15, 2012 4:07 pm
Enjoyed your blog. I immediately made the Heirloom Blueberry Cake, as I had all the ingredients. I appreciated your mentioning you cut thr recipe in half, and that is what I did. Delicious! And thank you--that was fun.

I was thinking of your faceless recipes as I searched "crab" the other day. So many faceless recipes came up...are you allergic to crab? LOL.
Jul. 16, 2012 12:17 pm
Nope, no crab allergy. It is incredibly expensive most of the time around here. It seems that when I do have it, I end up making crab cakes (can't stray from Hubby's favorite recipe.) It's not an ingredient I generally have a need to search for. I will now, though. You've made me curious. ;)
Jul. 16, 2012 10:51 pm
I love your photos and your blog! Thanks for sharing!
Jul. 18, 2012 5:25 pm
Yum! I do believe I would like one of each, please! However, I think the Delicious Spinach Salad is in my nearer future! Now, if you will excuse me, I have to eat my computer screen now.
Jul. 18, 2012 6:20 pm
Another stellar blog!! Thanks for sharing. You are an inspiration....
Jul. 18, 2012 10:24 pm

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.
