2018 has reached its end, bestowing on me the obligatory occasion to count blessings and recall the preceding year. One of the (numerous) difficulties I grapple with as a food blogger is that once I’ve finalized a recipe and posted it, I forget about it…forever…even when its success merits remaking. So, as 2018 dwindles to its last few days, I’m looking back on the past twelve months and summoning up the best dishes from this year’s posts – the ones I ought to remember so I can make them again, soon – and often. Here are my top 5, in no particular order:
Raspberry-Rose Viennese Whirls – As pretty as they are delicious, these delicate Raspberry-Rose Viennese Whirls are Love made edible.
Spanish Chorizo and Kale Soup – a winter soup with a spicy, smoky Spanish twist thanks to chorizo and smoked paprika. Loads of dark green kale pack this flavorful soup with plenty of healthy goodness.
Best Compost Cookies – All you favorite cookie flavors – plus some surprises like coffee grounds. These were a huge hit at the office.
Banana Cherry Muffins – These exceptionally moist and flavorful muffins were adapted from my favorite banana bread recipe. I’m going to whip up a batch of these this weekend!
Refreshing Pink Grapefruit Tart – Pink grapefruit transforms a dessert standard into a flavor combination that’s surprising, yet familiar. A press-in crust keeps the fuss-factor down. Another big hit in the office – and with the neighbors.
