I love quick breads. They are easy to put together and taste so good. It’s too hard for me to pick a favorite quick bread because I like them all.
With all the persimmons I was pureeing last week, I had to make a persimmon quick bread. I made this one here previously, which I really liked. But I wanted to try a few more recipes.
Every year I get a large wall calendar from my mom courtesy of Ranch 99 supermarket. It always has pictures of pretty fruit, which I love to gaze at. The fruits always vary, but the last few years, the first fruit photograph is always of persimmons.
Technically, persimmon season is about over. I pureed the last of my batch and stuck the puree in the freezer. We also dried quite a few of them. I love eating dried persimmon slices. (For a quick tutorial on the different types of persimmons so you don’t accidentally bite into an astringent one, you can read my post here.)
The last few weeks I was trying new recipes, including these persimmon cookies. I found the recipe on Two Peas and Their Pod.
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!
