I had so much fun compiling my list of Top 10 Meals of 2011 that I thought about doing one for the recipes I’ve made this year. But I hesitated for a long time because I’ve tried many, many recipes and I just didn’t think it would be possible to narrow it down to ten.

But after reading many other top recipe list blog posts, it renewed my desire to compile a top 2011 recipe list. I went through my old recipe posts, and sure enough, I just could not narrow it down to 10. So I allowed myself some leeway and narrowed it down to 15. I also thought it would be interesting to compare what my favorite recipes of 2011 were compared to what my readers found most interesting. So I went ahead and compiled the readers’ favorites list too for a side by side comparison. Enjoy!

    Happy New Year, Kirbie and FH!! You sure did a lot of baking this year! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in stored for us for 2012.

      Hi Carol! I didn’t quite realize how much baking had been happening until reviewing all my old posts. I may have to cut down some to look my best for my wedding.

    You made some pretty awesome stuff this year! I love all the cute animals :) So glad I found your blog this year–it’s great to know a fellow San Diego food blogger! I am looking forward to what you’ve got in store for 2012!
    BTW My boyfriend and I celebrated NYE last night at Terra American Bistro in La Mesa (Chef Jeff Rossman?). It’s in a pretty unsuspecting neighborhood for such great food, and I was wondering if you’ve ever tried it! We really liked it, so if you haven’t we definitely recommend!

      I have not been to Terra. Thanks for letting me know! Yeah I like to make cute animals and I actually had so many more I felt bad they couldn’t make my list. haha. It’s great meeting another SD food blogger. Have you already joined the fb page?

  3. Ann P. — January 2, 2012 at 11:13 am

    good suggestion! I typically forget that FB is another great venue to connect w/ food bloggers, so thanks for the reminder :)

      Yes, it’s nice to have this sd blogger community. You can ask questions on the fb page, find out about meet-ups, etc.

    Oh and I have to second Ann’s rec on Terra. I tried it once a few years ago during Restaurant week and always wanted to go back but never got the chance. The food was solid.
