It's the time of year for Top This and Most That lists. It's when we look back at the year that was and sum up in numerical order what happened as a way of deciding what we got right or what we got horribly wrong. So to jump on the Best of the Year and Worst of the Year bandwagon, I've decided to compile my personal favourite recipes that I've created and photographed here on Family Feedbag. So here it is, my Top 11 Family Feedbag Recipes of 2011:
I chose these recipes because I loved them from the first bite, and some of them I've come back to time and time again. The banana coconut oatmeal is breakfast a couple times a week for me, and the spiced pear chutney showed up on cheese platters at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a neighbourhood housewarming party this fall. The orange spice cake is still a regular request from my 4-year-old, and the sweet chili BBQ chicken was the year's biggest yumminess around our dinner table!
2011 was the first year of Family Feedbag, and there's lots planned for early 2012. I'm hoping to share some bread recipes in the New Year, experiment with some healthy vegetable dishes, and do lots of canning. So thanks for continuing to read along and for sharing your own stories as the cook in your home! Happy New Year!
What were the biggest hits around your family's table in 2011? Do you have any goals for 2012 in your own kitchen?
