What a year it has been. A truly delicious year. Choosing just a few of our favorite recipes of the year was no easy task; you only need to look at the bounty that has come from our kitchen to see that. 2010 was the year of the CSA, our first year as members, which filled our summertime dishes with new and unique ingredients. While I have yet to master caramel (one of my baking resolutions from last year), I finally made peace with pie crust. That alone is reason to call this a successful year. We were much more adventurous and confident in our cooking this year, and it shows.
So much of our lives revolve around food and cooking; to us, this blog is so much more than a blog. It is a food journey. It is a connection to the food community, both locally and worldwide. It is an escape. It is a joy.
Here’s to a happy and prosperous (and oh so scrumptious) new year!
