Top 10 Recipes of 2011

Just the post you've been waiting for, right? We've gone through our archives and and found our 10 most popular recipes for your enjoyment. We hope you had a great Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!

1. Spinach Artichoke Dip-Inspired Casserole

This was by far your favorite recipe. Everyone's favorite party dip made into a casserole that you can actually eat for dinner! And justify it! Oh yeah.

2. Fresh Pumpkin Risotto

Risotto made from a fresh pumpkin, white grape juice, and chicken broth. This was a yummy seasonal recipe and a different use for pumpkin than just pumpkin pie.

3. Quick Sweet Brown Rice Risotto

Another great risotto recipe using sweet brown rice. A creamy chicken dish that had my family going back for seconds.

4. Spices–Chili Peppers, Thyme

Okay, this isn't really a recipe, but it was one of our most highest-veiwed posts. We did a series of posts on the health benefits of spices, and chili powder and thyme has been the most popular.

5. Mango Strawberry Smoothie

We didn't make enough of this refreshing summer drink. I wanted more. And I want some right now.

6. Sun-Dried Tomato and Artichoke Chicken Linguine

Practically a staple at my (Britney's) house, we make this at a couple of times a month. It's easy, delicious, and we always make extra for leftovers.

7. Fry Sauce

Making any sweet potato fries for New Years? (It's a great idea, you know). Here are three recipes for fry sauces. They also would work great as a veggie dip.

8. Buckwheat, Oatmeal, and Amaranth Cereal

Whole-grain breakfast cereal made creamy with coconut milk. A nutritional powerhouse for breakfast.

9. Whole Grain Vegetable Spinach Wraps

I'm proud to say my (Cherie's) son thought that these were store bought. That's not something to brag about for most foods, but for whole grain spinach tortillas--that's a triumph.

10. Blackberry Lemon Almond Torte

A creamy dessert with an almond crust. And a blackberry filling. It was delicious.

And that concludes this year's top 10! Thanks to all you lovely readers who helped keep us going this year! We appreciate your support!
