Top 10 Recipes of 2010

It’s always fun to look back and see what the most visited recipes were for the past year. And since I’ve done a round up each year…
Ten best recipes of 2009
Ten best recipes of 2008
2007: best salads, best breads, best soups, best cookies & bars, best side dishes

…I’ll do one this year too! Here are favorites (as indicated by page views and comments for the past year):


Twix Bar Cheesecake Pie: My son’s pie… a 1st place winner in a pie contest this year. He is very happy to have made the top 10 list, but wonders why it’s not #1, of course!


How to Make Chicken Stock: It’s so easy to do, and I’m happy to see that so many people respond to it. When you make it yourself, it’s the good stuff!


Candy Bar- Cookie Bars
: For fans for the chocolate-peanut butter mix and oatmeal cookies. I guess there are a lot of them.


Banana- Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies
: Finally a banana cookie that is more like a cookie than cake. Love these.


Tequila-Lime Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Cream: I created this recipe for a magazine, and I am entirely proud of how it turned out. Shrimp Tacos are excellent all on their own, but that Chipotle Cream Sauce makes them over-the-top good!


Healthy Chocolate Cake: Nice to see that a low fat, low sugar dessert made the list, eh? I made this one for my Father-in-Law’s birthday- it’s low fat and low sugar, and it’s good choice for diabetics. My family all thought it was pretty darn good.


Deep, Dark Chocolate Brownies: Extra-moist and very, very chocolatey. For chocolate lovers.


Sea Glass Jello:  Inspired by our summer hunts for sea glass on New England beaches, I made this pretty, handheld dessert last summer.  It prompted excited emails from sea glass lovers everywhere!


Peanut Butter- Chocolate Swirl Cookies
: Based off of an old Christmas cookie that my Mom frequently makes, I created this delicious combination. It’s a personal favorite of mine.


Lemon Truffle Cake: I made this one for Easter, but apparently folks think it’s good any time of year. It’s the most visited 2010 recipe!
