2010 was a great year for Barbara Bakes! It was filled with fun adventures in the kitchen and I learned so much. I got a fabulous new camera and spent a lot of time trying to take better pictures. I went to my first food convention and my first bake-off.
But the best part of 2010 was all of the friends that shared the adventures with me. Thank you to all of my wonderful readers/subscribers. I appreciate everyone who stopped by and checked out my recipes. Your sweet comments always brighten my day.
Here are the top 10 reader’s favorite recipes of 2010:
#10 Peach Jam and Perfect Pesto – a little taste of summer sunshine.
#9 King Arthur Flour Fudge Brownies – the best brownies I have ever made. A perfect balance of fudgy with just a touch of cakey.
#8 Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies – a Pumpkin Spice Kiss hidden inside a rich chocolate, chewy cookie.
#7 Banana Nutella Bread – my favorite banana bread recipe with a pretty, decadent Nutella swirl.
#6 Snickerdoodle Snack Cake – the flavors of a Snickerdoodle cookie in a moist, delicious snack cake.
# 5 Breakfast Hashbrown Casserole – a hearty skillet breakfast that is always a crowd pleaser.
#4 Bacon Mac & Cheese with Gruyère – a delicious, dressed up mac and cheese, that’s very easy to make and is perfect as a main dish.
#3 Lemon Glazed Christmas Wreath Cookies – a beautiful lemon glazed wreath cookie for the holidays.
#2 Candy Corn Macaron for MacTweets – a mac inspired by candy corn and filled with Pumpkin Spice Kisses.
#1 Fresh Corn Chowder – boiling the corn cobs in the chowder water intensifies the flavor of this delicious soup, which I also loaded up with potatoes and bacon.
Definitely a delicious year at my house. I hope it was a your house too!
Wishing you all a happy new year filled with fabulous food and wonderful adventures in your kitchen.
