My Favorite Recipes from 2011
I keep saying it out loud and it seems strange typing it but it's almost 2012!!! I'm excited for the new year but wanted to share with you some of my favorites from this year. I couldn't pare it down to 5 so I have 15!
Happy New Year to you and yours! I can't wait for 2012 and what it will bring!
Huge thanks to Jamie from My Baking Addiction for originally posting this recipe. It's my go to cupcake recipe. My friends and co-workers love this cupcake!
This was a guest post I did for Jaden earlier this year and by my estimation was the first to do a combination cheesecake and cake pop. It's messy but well worth it and I was even interviewed by the Tampa Tribune about them!
We make these all the time…the only chicken pot pie recipe I will use. I can't believe I forgot to use turkey leftovers & make turkey pot pies this year.
We love lettuce wraps! These are so simple & pretty darn quick to make too.
All I can say is that I'm a Dubliner cheese addict.
My favorite flavor combo for 2011 is Meyer lemons & mint…you can't miss with this cocktail. There are instructions to make it a mocktail too!
Sometimes simple is all we need and it's still comfort food. I love Pomi tomatoes and this sauce delivers.
Okay, I have a problem, I many obsessions with food and short ribs are one of them.
Tequila and chicken…that's all I have to say. This is actually on the menu for next week!
The only chocolate chip cookies for me. Next time, I'm going to try it with brown butter.
My husband, Curtis, is a creature of habit and he loves this dish. He requests it all the time. We make this stir-fry at least once a month. I never get tired of it because we switch it up between chicken and beef.
Another obsession of mine is the slow cooker, with red wine & Guinness beer, you can't go wrong. It has loads of potatoes too which is the way I like it!
Here's another dish that we make ALL the time. We use the leftovers to make chicken pot pies.
Mmmmm…white chocolate. I blame that addiction on my Mom, she loves white chocolate!
And last but not least, I just made these this month and they had to be mentioned. They are so cute, aren't they? They are so light and buttery, I ate too many to count as soon as they came out of the oven.
Here are some more recipe round-ups from some of my favorite bloggers:
