Your Favorite Recipes of 2010


This year, I've struggled to find time to do a lot of the things that I love to do. Now, I've never been that huge of a cook, but now that I have VERY limited time to be in charge of the cooking, it's like a privilege that's been taken away. I did try a few things, like cinnamon rolls, the lemon-basil martini, and lots and lots of things out of our very first real-deal vegetable garden.

I get asked to participate in lots of recipe exchanges, and I always feel a little lame having not much to contribute. I get most of my recipes online or out of my favorite Giada cookbooks. But, I would love to be better about recommending recipes, because I always get great ones in return.

So, I thought I'd try something new. Why not do a recipe exchange blog post? Tell everyone what's been cooking in your kitchen lately. I'd especially love to hear your simple (fast? slow cooked?) and kid-friendly recipes. So do share! You can link to your own personal recipe (post it on your own blog), or anywhere in the World Wide Web!

I love this idea, and I love the linky tool! I'm already trying to think of a way to use it! I just had to share the Tuna recipe...it's one of my absolute faves :)

Did I miss it? Will you post the cinnamon roll recipe?

I strongly encourage everyone to try the 101 Cookbooks Orange Pan-Glazed Tempeh recipe. I followed the recipe exactly as written, using extra firm tofu instead of tempeh, and it was seriously delicious and easy. A definite favorite. If you do not like tempeh or tofu you could just as easily make this with chicken or shrimp.

Anonymous, I used the recipe in my Tassajara bread book, but it was fairly time intensive. Next time, I'll try Lisa's recipe: http://lilfishstudios.blogspot.com/2011/01/hubbys-secret-cinnamon-roll-recipe.html
Or, there's a recipe in "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" that I'll try.
