Upon seeing so many “Top 10 of 2010″ posts popping up in my Google Reader over these last few days – and enjoying each and every one one of them – I decided that I wanted to get in on the fun, too. I’ve never done one of these kinds of posts before, but I decided that rather than sharing some of my favorite recipes from this year, it’d be much more fun to share which recipes YOU really enjoyed. So, here are your top 10 favorite recipes from 2010 – just for fun, I’ll start with #10 and end with the most popular recipe at #1!
Why spend $5 on a latte when you can make it at home yourself for so much less? Plus, bottled syrups make great homemade gifts!
As the only savory dish that made the list, I’m going to agree that this one is definitely a keeper. The chicken is slightly sweet and slightly sour, and is wonderful served over rice with extra sauce.
8. Noir Bars
If you have a bad day, sometimes all you need is chocolate, and lots of it. These triple-chocolate bars definitely have you covered.
A holiday treat that’s perfect for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I also discovered that they freeze and thaw (already baked) very well, so you can easily prepare these in advance.
I’m a sucker for anything coffee, and coffee ice cream is my favorite kind of ice cream. I’m glad to know there are other coffee addicts out there!
These were an experiment with my little fryer, but a very, very good one. The recipe made so many that I gave them away to everyone I could find – my friends, co-workers, even the owner of our CSA – and everyone fell in love with them. I definitely plan on starting a new tradition and making these every fall!
I made this during a fun baking session with a few of my friends after we all went apple picking together. I had caramels left over from these addictive treats, so I decided to use them up in this pie – and I don’t regret that decision one bit.
If my hubby had a top-ten list, these would be on it. They’re one of his all-time favorite breakfasts, and I also love making them whenever we’re able to have a relaxing weekend breakfast together.
Dorie’s Perfect Party Cake is one of my all-time favorite celebration cakes, and my version with lemon curd, vanilla buttercream frosting, and blue-tinted coconut made our anniversary this year even more special.
This was the #1 recipe on my blog this year, which surprised me since it was something I threw together with leftovers that I needed to use up before they went bad. I’ll definitely take a tip from all of you resourceful bakers out there and get creative with my leftovers more often!
And there you have it! I can’t thank you enough for all of your support and love this year. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year’s celebration, and here’s to an extraordinary 2011!
