This marks the first full year of my Dinner Tonight blog. It has ben a true pleasure sharing so many recipes with you (118 and counting!). I have many more delicious ideas and recipes to share with you in the coming year so please stay tuned. I hope you'll keep reading and share this blog with your friends and family. I will certainly keep writing and cooking and posting for you.
Before we get started with all the new recipes, I wanted to once again share with you my top 10 favorite recipes from this past year. Perhaps these might inspire some end of year feasting for you too. I'd love to hear from you as well and what your favorites have been.
Dinner Tonight's Top 10 of 2010 (in no particular order):
Buckwheat Crepes: http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/01/buckwheat-crepes-with-mushrooms-chevre.html - Why? Because I can think of few other foods that I could eat with such frequency. They're just so darn delicious.
Pizza Festa Romana- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/02/pizza-festa-romana.html- Why? Because this pizza is simple and perfect and it reminds me of a magical night in Rome.
Roasted Carrots with Parsley, Mint, & Feta- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/02/roasted-carrots-with-parsley-mint-feta.html- Why? Because they're so super easy and I can't think of anything that wouldn't be great to serve with them.
Vanilla Honey Lavender Ice Cream- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/vanilla-honey-lavender-ice-cream.html- Why? Because it's my very favorite ice cream!
Grilled Fish Tacos- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/grilled-fish-tacos_18.html- Why? Because second only perhaps to the Buckwheat Crepes, I could eat these practically every day.
Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/02/poached-eggs-in-tomato-sauce.html- Why? Because, this is another staple in my house and a super comforting, fast, and easy dinner.
Zucchini Crudi- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/06/zucchini-crudi-pecorino.html- Why? Because it's so simple and fresh and it reminds me of summer.
Baked Butternut Squash Risotto with Kale- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/11/baked-butternut-squash-risotto-with.html- Why? Because I'm delighted and obsessed with this new way of preparing risotto.
Quince & Apple Crumble- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/quince-apple-crisp.html- Why? Because I'm a sucker for a good crumble. These are my favorite kind of desserts... fruit based and homey.
Salmon Chowder- http://dinnertonightblog.blogspot.com/2010/12/salmon-chowder.html- Why? Because it's my new 'go to' soup. It's simple and light and comforting all at the same time.
