A Look Back: Top Recipes of 2011

Last Updated on

Happy 2012, y’all!

I hope you had a fantastic time ringing it in, no matter who you might have been with and where you might have been!

My husband and I rang in the new year at our home, the perfect ending to a long day of car shopping, running 11 miles and general busy-ness. We cooked a delightful meal at home – seared scallops, Spinach Madeline, steamed green beans and tomato and spinach risotto – and then consumed an out-of-this-world blueberry crumble just after midnight. (Yes, we were a little ridiculous with our menu. And yes, it was as good as it sounds.)

Before kicking off the new year right, I wanted to take a tiny look back to 2011 at The Speckled Palate and share with y’all the top 10 most popular posts of the year.

Let’s do this thing!

1. Sour Cream Funfetti Cupcakes. 2. Ooey Gooey Bars. 3. Jazzed-Up Scrambled Eggs. 4. Black Bean Dip. 5. Pulled Pork Shoulder. 6. Chocolate Crinkles. 7. Fig Tart. 8. Apple Pie Muffins. 9. Yogurt French Toast. 10. Honey Mustard Coleslaw.

If you haven’t already, check those recipes out.

And then head on back here shortly because I’ve got some ideas brewing to make 2012 even better than 2011. And a lot of those ideas include awesome food.

Get excited.

    What a great food year! My favorite recipe of yours was definitely the beer bloody marys. During milder football season, we dressed them up with pickles, celery, pepperoncini, olives… and DEVOURED them! Otherwise, my favorite recipe of the year was We Are Not Martha’s buffalo chicken chili. So spicy and delicious.

    And now I’m hungry. For baked goods.

    I still owe you the whoopie recipe; I’m posting in on my blog next week so if you want me to send you the link I totally will. I’m thinking Monday or Tuesday 🙂

    Happy 2012!
