Top Recipe Picks from 2012: Best of the Blogs
The best recipes for 2012 are playing right now on a blog near you. We don’t know what 2013 will bring from a culinary POV — and we hope you’re already had plenty of black-eyed peas and other recipes that promise good fortune — but the results from last year are already in.
Thanks to a reprise from some of our favorite blogs of their favorite recipes from last year, we were able to cull a treasure trove of great recipes. Why wait until next New Year’s Day to build a repertoire of 12 months’ worth of already time-tested winners?
What’s so great is that each blog we found has such a wide range of dishes — everything from a Creamy Avocado Pasta (guacamole meets linguine!) to Meyer Lemon and Olive Oil Chiffon Cake. There’s enough here to put together an entire menu!
We’ve picked the recipes we like best. But, by all means, search each blog to find the dishes you most want to make from each list of Greatest Hits.
Love & Olive Oil has us drooling over another gorgeous dessert — Meyer Lemon and Olive Oil Chiffon Cake with Lemon Poppyseed Curd. A mouthful but not that hard to make. Where sun glasses afterwards.
Breakfast or afternoon tea has never looked better if you imagine it with this ink-stained Blueberry Muffin Bread from Peanut Butter and Peppers, a blog that, as the name implies, has lots of other treats to share.
Finally, not everything wonderful in the 2012 world of food involves food itself, as the Cookistry demonstrates with My Top 8 Gadgets of 2012, of which our favorite just might be this juiced-up lime squeezer.
Still time to luck out by making this great New Year’s Black Eyed Pea Dip!
