A New Year brings the promise of diverse culinary adventures. I thought before we move forward it would be fun to look back. Borrowing from a late night host, here are the Top Ten. I hope one of these is your new favorite recipe.
It comes as no surprise to me what this was the most view post of 2012. The Moroccan Snake Pastry is bursting with WOW factor. I mean, who doesn’t want to look like a pastry princess? This recipe is time consuming and worth every second it takes to create it.
This recipe was a winner in my book from the ingredients alone. Add the visual magic and viola… you are a culinary wizard.
This was the shocker! I think this made it to the top because of an irresistible title of “Pork Butts and Pig Tales
” featuring a humorous, yet informative post. Something about cooking with “prunes and butt” must have kept everyone’s inner adolescent boy laughing all the way through this blog. I would love to know if anyone actually made this! Funny thing is, this is a really good recipe.
This is simple to make and bursting with flavor.
This has Super Bowl party food written all over it!
The best part of this recipe besides eating it is you can freeze it ahead of time.
Shrimp “anything” is always a sure bet considering it is the most popular seafood in America.
Simplicity meets visual artistry.
This is very easy and refreshing on a hot summer day.
I have made so many variations of this recipe I lost count. It is one of those recipes you can’t afford not to have in your recipe box.

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney
My goal this year is to stay curious, be experimental, and never stop learning.I intend to seek out new culinary delights such as bugs… particularly from Moreton Bay or Balmain. I tried them on my recent trip to Australia and they are much better than the “bugs”
I had in Cambodia, but that is another post
