Yesterday we shared the Top 10 Recipes from our site in 2011 and today we are sharing our personal 10 favorite recipes. We really enjoyed looking back at all of the deliciousness that went on in our kitchen over the past year. It was a busy, but fun year. It was SO hard to pick out our favorites, but we finally narrowed it down. Josh picked 5 recipes and I picked 5. We hope you enjoy our favorite recipes from 2011.

Josh’s Favorite Recipes

5. Golden Grahams S’mores Bars-Josh created these S’mores bars during the summer and fell in love with them. They are super easy to make and a hit with kids and adults.

4. Cinnamon Baked French Toast-one of our staple breakfast recipes for entertaining or special occasions. We love that you can make it the night before. It is easy and our guests always ask for the recipe.

3. Black Quinoa Salad with Mango, Avocado, & Tomatoes-I made this salad during the summer and wasn’t sure if Josh would like it. Well, he loved it and now it is one of his favorite recipes.

2. Toasted Coconut, Toffee, & Chocolate Chip Cookies-these cookies are loaded with all of Josh’s favorite things-toasted coconut, toffee, and chocolate chips. He is always begging me to make these:)

1. Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes-Josh loves these pancakes! He would eat them every morning if I let him:) They are decadent and perfect for a breakfast treat.

5. Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies-I love all of my cookie recipes, but I fell in love with Biscoff Spread in 2011 so I had to include these Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies in my top 5. They are super tasty!

4. Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes-Josh picked our Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes, but I like our Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Pancakes even better. They are divine!

3. Grilled Guacamole-I was craving avocados like mad when I was pregnant, so this Grilled Guacamole had to make the list. It was a staple in our house during the summer months.

2. Sweet Potato Kale Pizza with Rosemary & Red Onion-I love everything about this pizza-it is my new favorite!

1.Gooey Cinnamon Biscuits-we made these biscuits when I was pregnant and I think I ate the entire pan. They are simple to make and are loaded with cinnamon goodness. They literally melt in your mouth. I might have to make a pan today. I can’t stop thinking about them now:)

Ok, that was hard. I kept going back and forth. I really love all of our recipes. We had a tasty year indeed!

We both agree that our favorite recipe of all time is our sweet baby Caleb๐Ÿ™‚ Our little pea has made 2011 the best year ever. We are so blessed to have him in our family.

Thanks everyone for a great year! We love sharing our creations with you and appreciate your continuous support. We are looking forward to 2012. I have a feeling it is going to be a very delicious year. Happy New Year!

    happy 2012, maria! thank you for sharing such wonderful & delicious recipes this year! i can’t wait to see what you come up with next year ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  4. Caleb’s cute green hat and sweater make him one adorable “pea” indeed! Your 2012 will be filled with fun watching him grow! Happy New Year!!

  5. Those Biscoff oatmeal cookies are still my husband’s favorite. I wanted the gooey cinnamon biscuits this morning, but didn’t have any cream and didn’t want to go to the store, so I tried them with half and half. I had to adapt a little to make them work, and I’m sure they are even better with full cream, but they were still very tasty!

  6. I’ve made almost all of these, but I think my favorite were your biscoff oatmeal cookies. They were a huge hit at my family’s annual cookies exchange!

  7. My hubs is going to love that guacamole. I can’t believe I missed it before! And I finally ordered some Biscoff spread, so I’m thinking those oatmeal cookies are my first Biscoff treat. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That photo of your little pea is too sweet!

  8. Great choices! Those are all delicious. And Caleb is just plain adorable, so it had to have been the best year yet. Happy New Year to the three of you!
