Top 10 time again. It’s that time of year when I pick the top recipes from 101 Cooking For Two. But first a review of the events of the year.
In January the blog was in recovery mode having moved from Blogger to WordPress in late November. Visitor number were recovering but not back to pre-Wordpress levels until February. Server crashes were frequent and horribly frustrating. My “little food blog” turned out to be much bigger then I though. I was upgrading things every few weeks until I found the right level of resources… about 4 times more than any estimate.
In June, changes at Google lead to the discovery; my migration to WordPress was not as good as I thought. I had left several hundred less popular posts unconverted. Opps… busted. 4 months of hard work and problem fixed. Only my obsessive personally lead to resolution.
The biggest personal changes were on the dog front. In January our Golden Retriever Jake died of cancer. He had multiple medical issues for the last few years of his life, but he left a large hole in our hearts.
The hole left by Jake could never be filled, but we are a ”dog” house, and we were not ready to give that up. While there will never be another Jake, we moved on. So about 6 weeks later Lilly and Molly arrived, and the place has never been the same.
Now on to the recipes. Most year I have great difficulties with the “weeding” but not so much this year. These recipes were the best, but the order was rough. On any given day I could have picked any one of 4-5 of these recipes as “Recipe of the Year” but see the explanation below.
A great, easy treat. Give it a try today.
The taste of a cinnamon roll with the ease of a muffin.
A slow cooker version of one of my all-time favorite recipes.
Learn how to cook the king of beef on a gas grill.
Ribs, ribs, ribs
A wonderfully easy cook with great taste.
This is one of my best chili ever. And it’s healthy.
If my wife was doing the ranking, this would be even higher. I’m making it again tomorrow.
Great Mexican always has a spot in the top ten.
A great tasting “everyday” meal. And that is what this blog is about. A must-try for everyone.
Have a healthy and wonderful new year.
