Our Favorite Recipes of 2010

Our Favorite Recipes of 2010

Earlier this week I posted the top 10 most viewed recipes of 2010. It is a great list and I was even surprised by a few. Today I am sharing our favorite recipes of 2010. Josh picked 5 recipes and I picked my top 5. I realized we spend a lot of time in the kitchen and I am glad because we had a very tasty year. It was difficult to pick only 5 recipes, but here are our favorite recipes of 2010.

Josh’s Top 5

5. Bacon Cheddar Drop Biscuits

4. Baked Potato Soup

3. New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies

2. Zuppa Toscana Soup

1. Key Lime Pie

Maria’s Top 5

5. Black Bean and Mango Tostadas

4. Grilled Pear, Brie, and Honey Crostini

3. Lemon Raspberry Bars

2. Vegetable Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

1. Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey Cookies

That was hard! I still look at my list and want to add other recipes. I have too many favorites. Josh and I both agree that our favorite post of 2010 was the “Big Kitchen Reveal.” It was fun inviting you all into our new kitchen. It was a lot of work, but so worth it.

We are looking forward to 2011 and don’t worry, we have a never ending supply of tasty recipes to share! Please let us know what you would like to see more of in the new year. We would love to hear your suggestions! Happy New Year-be safe and best wishes for 2011. I have a feeling it is going to be another fabulous year!

    Funny, all of Josh’s picks are very hearty and Maria, yours look so healthy and a little lighter. Same thing that happens in my kitchen. I tell ‘ya.

    Fantastic round up of awesome recipes. Those biscuits are calling my name right now…

    What a great idea and I’m sure this list could have gone on forever! Ok, your new kitchen, INCREDIBLE! What a dream! I can’t wait to see what comes out of it in the new year!

    Happy New Year, Maria and can’t wait to meet you in 2011 ~ Cheers!

  16. Erica — December 31, 2010 @ 10:09 am

    hehe- of course he choose key lime! You know my Josh would too! Those Black Bean and Mango Tostadas really look amazing. I’ve been wanting to try them. Enjoy your day!

  17. megan — December 31, 2010 @ 10:19 am

    I just want to take a bite out of that spring roll. Followed up by the Key Lime Pie of course!

  18. Joanne — December 31, 2010 @ 11:06 am

    Happy New Year! What a beautiful list…I for sure couldn’t narrow my favorites on your site down to five…or even 20!

  19. Jeanette — December 31, 2010 @ 11:15 am

    Yum, what a nice list of favorites. I especially like the black bean and mango tostados and vegetable spring rolls with peanut sauce, such a rainbow of colors. Happy New Year!

  20. Shaina — December 31, 2010 @ 11:18 am

    The zuppa toscana soup looks divine. I could use a bowl for lunch. Happy New Year to both of you!

  21. Those look like a great list! I’ll have to try those lemon raspberry bars — wow!

    The crostini with pear, brie, and honey sounds wonderful! But then so does the Zuppa Toscana Soup, and the Key Lime Pie. ~fantastic picks for 2010.
    Here’s to a whole new year of new recipes!

    Your top recipes look fantastic (as do most of your recipes!). I still can’t get over how perfect your chocolate chip cookies look.

  25. Heather — December 31, 2010 @ 1:54 pm

    You have so many great recipes and I don’t know how you both only chose 5! Great list and really fun to see each of you pick your 5. Have a wonderful New Years and hopefully we will get to see one another in 2011. Are you going to BlogHer? I decided to go since it was in Atlanta. Maybe we’ll see one another there?
    Again, Happy New Year!!

      I am still debating about BlogHer Food, I want to go but don’t know if it will work out. I will keep you posted. Hopefully we can meet up in 2011!

  26. fooddreamer — December 31, 2010 @ 2:44 pm

    They all look great. If I ever find the time to try all the recipes I have saved, I will try each of these too!

  27. Those New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of favorites as well, I keep going back to that recipe over and over again. I’ll have to try those vegetable spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce recipe, that sounds really nice and light, which is just what I need after the holidays!

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
