Our top picks from 2011!

2011 was a big year here at IWBTC, obviously…the blog was born just two weeks before the year started!  So, I want to showcase some of my favorite dishes from the year – 11, to be exact, for 2011.  I’m also getting a little help from my biggest fan and the lucky taste tester, my husband.

Here they are, in no particular order…although #1 might be a tad bit ahead of the rest 🙂  Enjoy, and if you haven’t already tried these, now’s your chance!

11. An easy, healthy and comforting stew that we dug right into – Lentil, Kielbasa & Garlic Stew

10.  A frozen treat that easily reminded us that homemade is always better – Pistachio Ice Cream

9.  This was by far our favorite of the year from south of the border – Mexican Pulled Pork Carnitas

8.  A burger that surpasses many others – Minted Lamb Burgers

7.  Frank loved his birthday, but he thought my Dad’s really “took the cake” – Sicilian Cassata Cake

6.  Our favorite crockpot meal – an oldie but a goodie – Crockpot Pot Roast with Veggies

5.  A make-ahead breakfast that really wowed our friends – Baked Panettone French Toast

4.  It wouldn’t be a “favorites” list if it didn’t include pasta –  Pumpkin and Sausage Baked Pasta

3.  Actually, make that two pasta dishes – Nana’s Lasagna

2. Frank LOVES my braciole, but has a real soft spot for this dish – Mambo Italiano” Chicken Parmigiana

1.  A dessert that many of my readers have made and RAVED about…always a big hit, and one I’m definitely happy I created!  Key Lime Cupcakes

Did I leave any of your favorites off the list?  If so, comment and let me know!

Bring on 2012…I’m ready for more great food!  Hope you are too 🙂
