MY top eleven of ’11

December 31, 2011 by Ali

Although so many of my favorite recipes from 2011 line up with your favorites, couldn’t resist posting some more recipes I adore that didn’t get quite as much traffic. Surprisingly enough, some of these are a bit more healthy than the dessert recipe that get all of the attention online. ;)

I’m already getting excited about new recipes to come in 2012, so stay tuned!

Happy New Year!!!

11. Healthy Fish Tacos with Mandarin Orange Salsa – This was one of my first recipes of the year, and has been a favorite ever since. Fresh, healthy, and I love the flavors!

10. Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bars – I’m pretty sure we made these four times this fall. Always a hit!

9. Tabbouleh – One of my mom’s favorite foods as well. Like mother, like daughter!

8. 44-Clove Garlic & Chicken Soup – Heavenly.

7. Earl Grey Ice Cream – Love the tea. LOVE the ice cream!

6. Tilapia with Tomato-Herb Pan Sauce - I’m always on the hunt for great new fish recipes. And this one was a total winner.

5. Snickers Cheesecake – Topped with delicious caramel sauce, this one is a top-requested recipe from friends!

4. Verde Shrimp Enchiladas with Jalapeno Cream Sauce – This one was an experimental knock-off from a favorite dish at a local Mexican restaurant. Now I always just make it at home!

3. Favorite Apple Chicken Salad – Ha, also inspired by a favorite restaurant salad. Delicious!

2. Pesto Pasta with Chicken, Asparagus & Arugula – This one was recommended to me by a coworker. As my friends say, it’s now definitely in “the rotation” of my go-to favorites. :)

1. Cherry Limeade Cheesecake – The name says it all. Love it.
