So, as I have every NYE since this blog's inception, we're gonna do a round up of the best recipes from this year. And it's the hardest one yet because this has been THE BEST year yet--SO MUCH YUMMY FOOOOOOOD! gah! But let's see what we have (Note: if you wish to pin any of these recipes, you may want to first click the link to the individual post, which has the recipe):
Top 4 Most Popular Recipes from 2013
My Top 9 Favorite Recipes of 2013
I made caramel sauce. It's a big deal. PLUS there's no corn syrup. And it's crazy delicious. Seriously changed my life, prior to this I didn't think I really liked caramel! *scoff*
I make these SUPER regularly and eat pretty much the entire batch in one sitting. Crazy good.
THE BEST bread for grilled cheeses! And just so soft and mmmm, a new fave! (especially when there's cheese in it...oh yeah.)
This recipe was actually full on developed by me, using my knowledge from a Neapolitan pizza class. Such a delicious, authentic, thin crust pizza with the perfect combo of ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella and then....ohhh....truffle oil....oh yes....
This is my cheaters version of an old family recipe and it is pretty darn close. And just so delicious. And comforting. Mmmm....
I love toffee. I love browned butter. I love cookies. I love chocolate. (PLUS I adapted this recipe using salted caramel too)-one of the best cookies to come out of my kitchen. Perfect texture. Perfect flavor!
Potentially my favorite chocolate chip cookie-SO classic and huge and gooey on the inside while crisp on the outside....I'm in love.
I am still proud of myself-I made cream puffs! The best cream puffs I've ever had, the combo of pastry cream AND whipped cream filling is just perfection.
Michael still raves about these. They're like the most fancified, sophisticated little bites of cookie dough bliss. Butter browned with vanilla beans, chocolate covered cocoa nibs instead of chips, a dark chocolate coating, and a perfect pinch of salt on top? I DIE.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Ok now, I'm ready to face 2014! I know this is going to be a very busy, very transitional year for me: with wedding planning and some other big new changes that I'll share with you all as soon as I can...here we go!
