You know… lists with favorite recipes from the year 2009.

I thought I won’t, but I surrender… Here are my favorite savory recipes from last year.

Notice the quality of the food photography. I think I got a little better this year. Sweet recipe summary will come soon, in case you wondered, or was worried…

January: Young Onion Tart with Cantal, Applewood-Smoked Bacon was amazing! And amazingly simple to make! Look at it as an upscale pizza, if you must. I urge you to make it.

February: Sweet and Smoky pork chops, I made these so many times this year! De-lish.

March: Roasted potato leek soup and my first scary to publish post about a dream I had and wanted to share (Ahem, last week I dreamt that I was on the Oprah show talking about my book. Ha! But you can never know…. right?!)


April: Chicken Liver with Cinnamon and Apples, a real good choice of recipe for a tight budget (it was Hunger Challenge week) + a big flavor. Trust me.

May: Spaghetti with Carbonara, quick, easy, and luscious

July: Crispy chicken legs became a new favorite in our home

August was a rough month. No recipe. But in September I dedicated a recipe to my father who has passed away in August. How to make Shakshuka?

So I get to choose another recipe for September. It’s hard to choose between Foraged wild mushrooms soup or Israeli couscous with fresh veggies salad but I choose the second ‘cos it has pretty photos of my cute little one.


October: Chicken soup doesn’t need introduction…

November: I had a meatball attack. A total craving for meatballs, but my favorites were from my first Asian cookbook. Check out the Steamy sweet and sour pork meatballs

December: Minestrone soup, ending the year with a comforting soup.

Looking back at all of this makes me realize how much I love blogging!

Happy New year to everyone!~
