10 Favorite Recipes from 2010

Yet another year is coming to an end. It’s ridiculous how fast time goes by. Every year I say that the New Year will be better than the last but life happens and each New Year has its ups and downs. So in 2011 I’m hoping that life will be filled with a lot of joy, few sorrows, and a hell of a lot of good food!

Here are ten of my favorite recipes from the past year in no particular order. It was hard to choose, so I went with the first ones that jumped right out at me.

These babies are simple perfection. I’ve not met one person who could resist them. Thanks again for the recipe K!


Oh how I love this recipe… Sweet, sticky, and tangy. Perfect for dinner or as an appetizer.


Brent would not stop eating it when I made this a while back. He keeps asking me to make it again.


In 15 minutes you can have dinner on the table. That is all the time these delicious little tacos take. They are light and fresh yet still filling.


 Still my favorite pesto to date. I was eating it with a spoon.


If I ever enter a sammie contest, this would probably be my entry. I loved everything about this sandwich and how it all just blended so perfectly together.

 These mashed taters take just a teensy bit of extra effort but the payoff is huge. We made these for Mother’s day and they went beautifully with the Prime Rib dinner.


 I ate this entire dish by myself in one sitting. My thighs have still not forgiven me.


 I love pretty much every type of stuffing except maybe the boring old plain cornbread kind. This one is different with a nice spicy flavor that is anything but ordinary.



Sometimes I am so thankful for this blog because it forces me to write down every recipe I make. This was one of those recipes that came out so perfect that I’m glad I will never have to wonder “What the hell did I put in that again?”


Honorable Mention: Creamy Leek Gratin. When I made this dish, my camera malfunctioned and I was unable to get a photo. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and should make it again. The only thing I will do differently is double the recipe so I can eat more of it!


I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year! Cheers!

Happy New year to you too and Thanks for sharing your Top 10 Favourite recipes. I am especially liking the 'Rocket aka Arugula Walnut pesto'. I must give that a go for sure.
