Happy New Years

The end of year always brings the endless stream of “best of lists”. Well, I had to create one of my own. I compiled my top 10 favorite posts of this last year. It wasn’t easy, as they are all close to my heart.

This year I had the opportunity to meet many other bloggers and had a blast learning more about food photography. I created new recipes and even have one being published in an upcoming publication. Lot’s of things that made me smile. I am planning and looking ahead to new recipes to share with you.

Thank you my faithful readers for your encouragement and patience when my work gobbles me up. I love forward to new Adventures In The Kitchen with you in 2010.

Italian is my favorite food and this was the perfect pasta dish – Bucatini All Amitriciana.

Sweet Molly's Cookie
Sweet Molly’s Cookies were from a local bakery I went to in my college years. The fun part is the owner of the shop contacted me after reading the blog!

Finished Filet of Beef

And this Filet of Beef with Gorgonzola Sauce continues to be my most popular post here at Adventures in the Kitchen and the most requested meal by friends and family. Not a great photo though! You just have to trust me on how delicious this is.
