A Look Back: The Best Recipes of 2011


Okay, confession time. I have been seriously slacking off on this blog for the last week. We had a wonderful holiday with a visit from some family, and my motivation took a serious tumble. Besides which, my husband always takes the week off after Christmas, and our focus has been on some much needed household projects. Our dining room is now a lovely, calming shade of moss green instead of the overly dark and formal red it was when we moved in (three years ago now!). And as always, I feel “cooked out” after Christmas, so we’ve been coasting on leftovers and easy meals. I do have a few recipes I’ve been working on, and hope to have them up soon. But in the meantime, I am going to fall back on what I see a lot of food bloggers do this time of year…a retrospective. A look back at my best recipes from 2011, both those that were most popular and those that I think are the best.

10 Most Popular Recipes of 2011

10. Pumpkin Praline Parfaits

9. Grilled Zucchini and Corn Salad

8. Chilled Guacamole Soup

7. Chocolate Chocolate Chip Kahlua Ice Cream

6. Blackberry Lemon Ricotta Parfaits

5. Feta and Spinach Garlic Rolls

4. Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles

3. Almond Flour Bread and French Toast

The popularity of these recipes is determined solely by the total number of pageviews each received. And as we know, this can be skewed by a lot of factors and it doesn’t always speak to the excellence of the recipe. Although I do vouch for all of the above recipes as very good ones, I also have some personal favourites that I would like to share. Although I am not going to rate mine, these are some of the recipes of which I am most proud. In no particular order…

1. Ginger Cashew Granola Bars

2. Peanut Butter Caramel Shortbread Bars

3. Sticky Toffee Pudding

4. Boston Cream Pie

5. Garam Masala Eggplant Chips
