Before we get to the recipes I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. What a lovely final week of 2009 it has been but I am most thankful for this beautiful snow storm that blanketed our area in these final days of the year.
Having lived in California my whole life, with little to no seasonal changes, this is a treat for me and my boys. The backyard became a virtual winter wonderland and the boys took advantage of all the freshly fallen, powdery snow. I spent the day throwing wet mittens and hats into the dryer and replacing them with dry ones so the boys could continue their winter antics without interruption.
Snow angels and snowmen were made with lots of snowball fights in between. To have this right out our door was really a treat.
We are lucky enough to have a beautiful atrium in this house and from every common room and hallway we had a beautiful view of the snow. It was magical.
But let’s get to those top recipes. These recipes are the top 10 recipes on this site by my site analytics. They have swirled around the globe many times over and continue to be printed fast and furiously.
Enjoy and have a wonderful New Year’s Day.
Starting with number 10…Tangy-Sweet-Plum Spiced Chicken. This is continually requested by my oldest son, thank goodness it’s so easy to make.
Number 9 is the perfect brunch item, Breakfast Bruschetta with Strawberries and Tangy Cream. You will love it.
Number 8 is not a wise choice if you are on a diet…Caramelized Chocolate, Banana and Marshmallow Sandwiches.
The million dollar cookie winning the Pillsbury bakeoff…Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookie is holding at number 7.
The Upside Down Apple Pie at number 6 is now one of my favorite desserts.
Another favorite at number 5, Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Apple Cider Glaze.
I still love these Smokin’ Red Roasted Potatoes, they are always the perfect presentation.
This was last year’s number one, Butterscotch-Apple Cake, now at number 3.
Number 2 is my favorite Superbowl recipe, Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Dip.
NUMBER 1 is the Pasta Pie. I still can’t believe how nice this recipe turns out, you should try it!
Have a wonderful day!
