Eleven for ’11

New Year’s Eve. A time for reflection. I haven’t been blogging that long, but I still love the idea of reminiscing about favorites of the year.  I picked out my ten best (and one worst)dishes. You may notice that it leans slightly on the sweeter side, hehe.  All of these were new recipes or new variations that I tried this year. Hope you like them! 🙂

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

Spicy Arancini

Black Beans Chili

Moussaka with Quinoa, Lentils, Walnuts

Honey Oatmeal Bread with Raisin Cinnamon Swirl

Brownie Pudding

Rasagulla

Orange Cranberry Chocolate Chip Scones

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Tiramisu

Oh, maybe you are wondering about that one worst. Well, what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t admit my mistakes? Oh yes, there are definitely flops from time to time, but this one was completely salvageable! Had to go straight to the trash. A pity too, since the batter tasted pretty good!

Epic Fail!

This was supposed to be an eggless chocolate banana bread with walnuts and chocolate chips. Its probably my fault for trying to combine two totally different recipes AND make my own adaptations. The batter was way too dry, so I had to keep adding more and more milk. This was in the oven for an hour and a half and would.not.cook.in.the.middle. I don’t know if the picture shows it, but its still raw and gooey. The edges were like rubber. And not the soft rubber, like, tire rubber. And then theres the ski slope where the middle completely sunk in. Total failure, hehe!

WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR FULL OF GOOD EATS AND GREAT ADVENTURES!!!
