2010 Faves, Part 1

Wow, I can't believe how much my little blog has come along in just one short year. This has been so fun for me. The time surely has flown by. I've cooked, baked, and photographed a lot, I've even had my fair share of failures in the kitchen as well. Nonetheless, I'm sure I have a long way to go in terms of my learning but I know I'll have fun doing it.

I've gone through all the posts from the past year and have picked the ones that are my favorites, ones I'd like to highlight again so I can share them with you all. I hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

White Chicken Chili-This is still one of my favorite soups, I love the flavor combinations going on here. It is so tasty and very hearty.

Feta and Sun-Dried Turkey Sliders-I love Greek inspired food, especially when there's feta cheese involved. The moment I saw these, I knew I would love them and I absolutely did, they were wonderful.

Four Cheese Ravioli- I was absolutely in heaven when I first made these. They are simple and easy to make and they practically melt in your mouth.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast-If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you'll know I'm a die-hard breakfast fan. I absolutely love this french toast. It certainly does not disappoint.

Lemon Poppy seed Pancakes-Just about anything lemon strikes my fancy, but when it comes in pancake form, even better. These pancakes are light and fluffy and have just a little more than a subtle taste of lemon.

Honey Curry Chicken with Thai Coconut Rice-This is one of the simplest and quickest meals to throw together. After I made it the first time, I couldn't get enough of it, especially the rice. This is a hands down favorite at our house.

Perfect Pizza Crust-Pizza is much loved in our house and I always have the ingredients on hand to make it. This dough is perfect for any topping you might like.

Peanut Butter Cup Trifle-If you've made this stuff, you know it goes quick! I have to say that this is one of my all-time favorite desserts, it's also one of the most indulgent desserts I've made too; very rich but oh so delicious. Peanut butter and chocolate, what can get better than that?

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes-Another favorite pancake recipe. We ate these a lot this year, especially in the fall after we went apple picking. I just love the combination of apples and cinnamon. For a special treat, we served them with some apple cider syrup-wow!

Pecan-Crusted Chicken Tenders with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce-I couldn't believe when I first made these how my family gobbled them up! I have never been one to buy pre-packaged chicken nuggets, I much prefer to make my own. These chicken tenders take very little effort and only have a few simple ingredients.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the rest of the list.


  1. Happy New Year to you - I hope blogging is even more fun in the next year.

  2. I love reading this blog! I always find great meal ideas. Thank you for the time you put into this!

  3. Looking at some of these makes me think, why haven't I made that yet? Love your blog Michele!
