Is it just me, or are the rest of you going to be dating everything 2012 for at least the next month?? I can't believe we're at 2013 already. It seems like just yesterday was 1993 and I was moving to New Orleans from Cape Cod, so moving to New York after Hurricane Katrina feels like just last night, and starting this blog was surely only this morning. Where does the time go?!?
In taking a look at my Top 10 recipes from 2012 that were most viewed, commented on, pinned, etc., I had to smile at a few, laugh at one or two and even raise my eyebrows in wonder at another (the gross looking yet very tasty Tomato-Basil Cornbread Pudding). In looking at my own favorites from this year, I found that we did have some in common, but I was sad to see there were others that may not have made the cut for you ... or maybe you were off the grid those days or are more recent followers and just didn't see them??
Let's see where we diverged. Far and away your favorite recipe posted in 2012 is also one of mine ...
|Spinach Bouregs (Spanakopita)|
Followed VERY closely by ...
|Sesame Orange Chicken|
Then on to ...
|Olive Tapenade Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes|
|Acorn Squash Stuffed with Curried Quinoa...|
|Tomato-Basil Cornbread Pudding|
|SW Inspired Chicken Salad w/Avocado Dressing|
|Kahlua Beef Short Ribs|
|Dijon Crusted Fairy Dusted Pork Chops|
The favorites for me that did NOT make your Top 10 List are ... in alphabetical order because I love all my "children" equally ...
|Baked Macaroni & Cheese|
|Beef Short Ribs with Barley and Kale|
|Dijon Crusted Roast Beef|
|Lentil Soup with Ham|
|Mexican Stuffed Peppers|
|Raspberry Pie with Coconut Macaroon Crust|
And last but certainly not least ...
|Swedish Oatmeal Cookies|
Sooooo, having any second thoughts now that you've seen my faves??
Wishing you all a wonderful, warm, happy, and above all SAFE New Year!!!
