A Look Back at 2009 on Family, Friends and Food (part 1)

 It's kind of funny that I realized the other day that I've been writing this blog for 2 years now.  Something I started on a whim as a way to keep track of recipes I've made and family recipes has become a hobby that I enjoy quite a lot.  So, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the recipes that were favorites this past year... Today I'll share favorites from January through May of 2009.  Check it out, you just might be inspires to try something new!

We had friends over last January and we had just started playing around with the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day cookbook.  I had so much fun making the Rosemary and Onion Foccacia.

The best quote from My Oldest this year "My tastebuds are going crazy!" was a result of the dinner that I made consisting of Panko Crusted Turbot Fillet and Roasted Cauliflower.

Then, I made a batch of brownies that could truly rock your world, Marshmallow Crunch Brownies.

Discovering Roasted Grape Tomatoes was amazing!  Try them... you won't be sorry!

Another salad winner was Strawberry Spa Salad with Almond Vinaigrette.  I fell in love with the first bite!

I'll share more favorites from the last half of 2009 tomorrow!  This has been a fun year of cooking and I plan to share some fabulous new recipes in 2010 - so be sure to keep coming back!

I want a meal out of all these dishes now. The bread, the fish and brownies for dessert. I remember that salad dressing. The almond one. I tried it and loved it. Thanks for the reminder. I need to make it again! Happy New Year Patsy!

Blogs are the perfect, fun way to look back - I totally would forget tons of culinary and kid stuff otherwise!
