YOUR top eleven of ’11

Holy smokes, friends.  I can hardly believe that another year of blogging has already gone by!

Between my crazy new schedule changing jobs, and putting a house up on the market and then moving, and a host of other crazy life changes…I feel like I’ve honestly done less cooking than ever this year.  But then when I took a look back at the past year of recipes, and all of your amazing, and oh-so-encouraging comments, I realize that somehow quite a bit of deliciousness did make it to the blog.  And now I’m hungry to remake each of these!!!

In all seriousness, though, a million thanks once again for being such wonderful readers and supporters of my little site!  You all are such a gift to me, and I love getting to be connected through the love we all share for great food.

So here are your top eleven favorites of 2011!  My personal favorites will be in a post to follow.  I wish you a wonderful new year full and many delicious new recipes to come!  :)
