It seems fitting that my first post of the new year should be a round up of my favorite recipes of 2009. It was definitely a delicious year!
Banana Nutella Bread – an adapted Cooking Light banana bread recipe with a swirl of Nutella.
Strawberry Panna Cotta – smooth, creamy Italian dessert that is easy to make and perfect for summer.
Cranberry Crumb Bars – crumbly and tart, a perfect cookie for the holidays.
Cashew Chicken in Puff Pastry with a Parmesan Cheese Sauce – a Daring Bakers’ challenge that’s flaky, crunchy and creamy delicious all roll into one.
Spicy Chicken Soup – an easy, crockpot recipe that everyone who tastes it asks for the recipe.
Spicy Grilled Pork Tenderloin – this quick, spicy pork tenderloin recipe is succulent on the grill or baked in the oven.
Oatmeal White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies – my family has fallen in love with this cookie. A wonderful blend of sweet and tart and loaded with white chocolate chips.
Vanilla Bean Cheesecake – my version of TGIF’s mouth-watering cheesecake.
Coconut Lime White Chocolate Chip Cake – this cake is moist and dense like a coffee cake, topped with coconut and a tart lime glaze.
I hope you’ll try some of my favorites. The best thing about blogging is sharing recipes with all the wonderful friends I’ve made. Thanks to everyone who took the time to visit my blog last year – those who commented and those who just lurked. Wishing you a happy and sweet New Year!
