I won’t be around later this week so today I am sharing with you our very favorites from 2011. Blair and I came up with individual lists, then we compared ours to one anothers. It was a tough decision, but we finally got it down to the top ten! We tried so many great things this past year so without further ado, here are our favorites. Later this week, I will be sharing the most popular recipes from the year!
First up are these Chicken Enchiladas. They have quickly become one of our favorite meals. They make an ordinary dinner night into something extraordinary. We serve them to friends and love to eat them as much as possible.
This Strawberry Lemonade was how we kicked off our summer. I made it right before Memorial Day, we enjoyed sipping it throughout the summer while we grilled out.
Smoky Pork Tinga Tacos was another easy crockpot meal that I served to some of my friends. I loved the addition of the potatoes, and it was a nice change-up from a traditional beef taco.
Obviously we needed to choose some sweets as well. I made Cookie Dough Truffles for a Valentine’s Day treat for my family members, but Blair mangaed to keep some for himself. Safe, raw cookie dough coated in chocolate….heaven on earth.
White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies quickly stole my heart and tastes exactly like Fall in one bite.
And last, but definitely not least is Tres Leches Cake. My co-worker first told me about this cake and I knew I had to have it. I would call it life-changing. It has also now become my birthday cake and it is not even chocolate!
