Ten months ago, I started this blog to keep track of the foods that I was making as I learned my way around the kitchen. This is my 100th post and I can't believe how far I have come. With 100 new recipes under my belt, I think I have upgraded from rookie cook, to junior cook. I still have a long way to go, but I have made some really great strides and some really great food!
To celebrate, I thought I would do an Oscar-style recap of some great kitchen moments.
Favourite New Dish -- My best investment this year was in Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa cookbooks, because without it, I wouldn't have found this new summer staple: Summer Garden Pasta
Most Improved Technique -- My presentation has certainly come a long way, but is most noticeable in the cupcake icing. This is where I started, and this is where I am now!
Best Suprise Food -- easily the peanut butter and oatmeal sandwich cookies. I still dream about these ones.
Best Breakfast Dish -- I had never cooked with buttermilk before I tried these Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes, but now it's a staple in my fridge
Most Impressive Dessert -- easily the triple chocolate mousse cake. It's not only visually impressive, but it's sinfully delicious.
Most Popular Blog Post -- dulce de leche brownies. This shouldn't surprise me, but it's clear I'm not the only one with a sweet tooth!
Thanks for visiting my blog and feel free to drop any recipe ideas you may have or something you think I should try!
