2011 My Favorites

I promised I’d be sharing my favorite posts from the year. It’s really hard to choose just 10 favorite posts, especially when I already have 10 reader favorites that I need to avoid in my own list. I could very easily say that certain non-recipe posts were my favorites… a certain baby announcement, birthdays or even random goings on in my life. I decided to be fair, I’d stick to favorites that are primarily recipe related. Again… still super hard to sometimes narrow down but I did it. I can only imagine what my top 10 will look like next year.

What was your favorite recipe or two from the year? I’d love to hear!

I’ll be keeping this short and sweet as we have two new members to the family coming home very soon. I promise to introduce you next weekend when I have some pictures. :)

In no particular order, these are my top 10 favorite posts (recipe wise of course) of the 2011.


Garlic knots


Funfetti cupcakes


Havarti mac n cheese


BLC salad


Buffalo chicken wontons


Garlic bread


Lobster mac n cheese


Apple pecan cheesecake


Apple crisp


Candy Cane thumbprints

and one extra (as chosen by The Mr)…


Slow cooker buffalo chicken chowder

    Great top 10! I was trying to pick a favorite but I couldn’t. I was going down the list saying “ooo, that looks good. Oh, that looks good too. No wait, that’s my favorite.” Since I do have a soft spot for cheesecake I think I’d make that first.

    I can see why these were the top 10 — they all look so good! I must try the last one, though. I seriously love anything buffalo! It looks delicious :)

    Great round-up! I bookmarked the buffalo chicken chowder when you posted it originally, that one needs to happen soon here.

      Oh you should Tracey! If you like buffalo chicken you’ll love it. I’m making it again this week by request. :)
