Happy New Year, everyone!
It’s that time of year again, time for fireworks and champagne, midnight kisses, resolutions we will not keep, and my top ten most popular recipes of this past year.
So here they are, my most dish-soap worthy recipes of 2012
This was one of my Foodgawker featured recipes this year, a moist and delicious, lemony muffin, peppered with poppyseeds, and it comes in at number 10 on this year’s list.
This was one of my personal top 3 recipes this year. I tried it out this year for Mother’s Day, and it has become a special occasion brunch staple for me since. Flaky puff pastry filled with a sweet cinnamon brown sugar butter… What’s not to like about that?
Snickerdoodles stuffed full of sweet cinnamon butter. A deep dish cookie, if you will.
This was just a quick and easy dinner that I whipped up one summer night. It is light, delicious, and is one of only two non-baked good to make the top 10 this year.
I did a copycat of this famous cookie for Valentine’s Day, but they hold their shape amazingly well, and could be done for any holiday. Oh, and the frosting is my new go-to buttercream. It is so, so good.
I made these in June, for “Half Christmas,” because I have a sickness. This is a great fall breakfast or dessert. So very good, and earns a place in my personal top 3 for this year.
I got a deep fryer last Christmas. And I used it. A lot. In my defense, I was like 6 months pregnant. 🙂
I have to tell you, I almost didn’t even try this recipe, because I am skeptical of anything that starts “with a box of cake mix” and then adds other ingredients. I am so glad I tried it, because it is one of my new favorites.
Quite fittingly, this recipe was also my very favorite new thing I made this year. I made them first in April, and have made them about a million times since. These moist, chewy cookies have all the flavors of a snickerdoodle, but I swear to God, they are better. And easier. I was losing baby weight when I made them, and for the first time ever, threw away half a batch of something delicious, and then wanted to eat it out of the garbage. I really did have to pour dish soap over the top of them so that I would stop eating them. Definitely my most dish-soap, Betty Crocker Clinic worthy recipe of 2012.
Thanks for taking this walk down memory lane with me. Hope I can find lots more delicious things to make and share with you all in 2013!
