Your Favorite Top Ten Recipes of 2011

I have a lot of favorite but these were the recipes that you guys kept coming back to in 2011. I have to say…you all have good taste!

I’m a little surprised that these were the overall favorite from 2011. Not that they aren’t good but they are actually from 2010 and they didn’t involve peanut butter or chocolate which is always popular. Pinterest revived some interest in them and they are still one of my favorites that satisfy the kids and adults as well.
#2 Favorite: S’mores Cookies
Cookie dough, graham crackers, and marshmallows…these were a hit with my friends and a hit with you guys. Perfect for a summer barbecue or New Year’s Eve bash.
After increasing the cheesecake layer so that the crust to cheesecake ratio satisfied me, these are perfection in my eyes. Although these are also from 2010, I’ve made them several times this year and always get asked for the recipe.

You guys must love peanut butter and chocolate as much as I do to make this your #4 favorite. I mean you have to be serious about your peanut butter and chocolate love to indulge in this and I did – I think I ate the whole thing by myself. This was the only thing to finally fulfill my peanut butter pregnancy craving.

I haven’t met many carbs that I haven’t liked, but some I like more than others. This appetizer is visually appealing and HELLO, cheese and bread…yes, please.

These cupcakes screamed fall and they blew up on Pinterest. Who knew so much goodness could come from a cake mix.

These were from a post way back in 2009 which explains why the photo is not that great. I first had these at a “chocolate party” at my friend Greta’s house and had to have the recipe.
Sometimes simple is good, that’s why I like this french toast casserole with it’s classic flavor. And since I’m not a morning person the night before prep is just what I need.

     Favorite #9: Fruit Salsa

This was a summertime favorite, another one from 2010. This is always a hit at baby showers and get togethers.

Favorite #10: Cheddar Bay Biscuits
You guys like those Red Lobster biscuits as much as I do. I love these when I don’t want to deal with yeast. They are cheesy, savory, and super easy.
