Yesterday, I shared the most popular recipes from 2011. Today, I’m sharing my favorites.
They’re in no particular order – I couldn’t actually pick a favorite – but these are all dishes we loved and have made again and again.
Oh, how I love this dip. It’s creamy and cheesy and includes bacon. If you’re looking for something to make for New Year’s Eve or the Super Bowl, this is a great option.
I made this for Branny Boil’s Over Charity Souper Bowl and it’s since become one of my favorite soups. Branny’s just announced the 2012 Souper Bowl, for anyone interested in participating!
A little taste of summer you can make any time of the year. These are a total guilty pleasure.
I’m a big fan of junk food – and a bigger fan of healthier alternatives. These are baked, not fried, but still amazingly good.
These were part of my summer burger kick. I was lukewarm on the idea of turkey burgers before – these totally changed my mind. They’re moist, fresh-tasting and fantastic.
This year was our first full summer in the house – and thus, our first full summer with a grill. We made good use of it, cooking outside nearly every night. This was one of our grilling favorites.
Not your typical cheesecake – this one is much lighter. It’s from a cookbook we picked up on our honeymoon in Hawaii and a great reminder of our time there.
Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
I’ve made a lot of chocolate chip cookies, but these are by far the best. It’s officially my go-to recipe.
This is a great summer pie – perfect for strawberry season. It has minimal ingredients and it a real crowd pleaser.
These are so simple but so good. They’re a great go-to for busy days.
