Two year Blogiversary

I can't believe I've been doing this for two years! Last year's round up seems like a piece of cake, now. I've been blogging much more consistently the past few months and had around 130 recipes to choose from. It was so hard to narrow it down, and although I have many favorites from Barefoot Bloggers and Tuesdays with Dorie, I excluded those. I wanted a top 10 but had to settle on a top 12. ;-)

In Dessert-First order...

1) Banana Split Cupcakes
A collaboration with Katie of Good Things Catered that was oh so right. Delicious and cute, if I do say so myself.

2) Cranberry Apple Crunch
Straight from Katie and also available in the plain apple crunch variety, I typically inhale this within minutes of it coming out of the oven. It surely needs a new photo...

3) Chocolate Biscotti
I have made this recipe time and time again. TWICE in the span of a week at my mother in law's house when we were staying for Christmas. It is fantastic.

4) Oreo Cupcakes
Totally fun, amazing whipped cream frosting, hidden oreos - what's not to love?

5) Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Whipped Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting
I'll even take just the frosting on this one - it's awesome! If you love the chocolate/peanut butter combo - this is your cupcake.

6) Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins
If you like blueberry muffins, give these a try at least once - even if you already have a favorite recipe. They are amazing!!

7) White Chicken Chili
Mmmmm, so comforting during the cold, harsh winter!

8) Kung Pao Chicken
This dish is all we ever order from Chinese take-out, so I was super excited to find such a great homemade alternative.

9) Evelyn's Favorite Pasta
I never need to go to the Cheesecake Factory again, because now I can make my favorite dish at home!

10) Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic
Not as scary as it sounds, a simply fantastic way to cook chicken. YUM.

11) Potato Artichoke Gratin
Leftover potatoes will never again go to waste in my kitchen.

12) Chicken Parmesan Burgers
Elly's quick, easy, and scrumptious burgers have me wondering why I ever fire up the grill - a broiler works wonders!
