I get a kick out of going through stats at the end of the year to see what the most viewed posts were in comparison to what my favorites were for the year. I was pleasantly surprised to see that your top-ten favorites from last year opened and ended with Armenian recipes. That was not the case this year, but one Armenian recipe did sneak into the top five.
Far and away your favorite from this year were my BLT Cups/Spears. A great party twist on a favorite sandwich.
The rest of your top-ten were ...
|Butternut Squash Cakes|
|Armenian Almond Cookies|
|White Cheddar Cheez-It Fried Pickles|
|Crumb-Topped Cheddar Apple Slab Pie|
|Melting Greens Soup|
|Massaged Kale Salad|
And last but not least ...
I was curious to see that only one of my top-ten matched your list. My favorites, in no particular order (although I think for me, the Peach BBQ Pulled Pork and Pesto Chicken Burger tied for first place), are ...
|Peach BBQ Pulled Pork|
|Pesto Chicken Burgers|
|Our only match - Fried Pickles|
|Armenian Wedding Pilaf|
|Chocolate-Pineapple Banana Bread|
|Orange Five-Spice Roasted Chicken|
|Carrot Bread with Star Anise|
OMG, now I'm second guessing saying that the Pulled Pork and Pesto Burgers were tied for first. That Five-Spice Chicken was soooooooooo good! Hmmm ... sigh ... tough call.
I can't believe I completely forgot about that Chocolate Pineapple Banana Bread. That's what happens when you have a food blog. You're always trying to make something new so you can blog about it, but then you end up not making something again even though you loved it. That's why you'll never see me blogging as often as some others - I actually like to repeat things, or some days I'll eat something random like just cheese and crackers, or throw a big salad together. Not exactly post-worthy. Dang, I might have to make that banana bread this weekend. It's gonna be stuck in my head now lol. And the Carrot Bread with Star Anise! OK, this is like going grocery shopping when you're hungry ... Chris, it's time to step away from the food pics!! Later. :)
