favorite recipes of 2011.

How was your new years? We rang it in with a delicious dinner at Dinette, filled with little toasts with delectable toppings (frittata and truffle oil! Christian had prosciutto) and a vegetarian main course that surpassed any I’ve had in years. Potato and parsnip latkes atop french lentils with caramelized onions. Simple and wholesome but insanely and surprisingly delicious.

The small dining room is decorated with tea trays, and it’s the most charming restaurant; I smiled the whole time. A very romantic new years eve, which was a nice change from my past new years eves, which consisted of going to see an Austrian DJ at a venue that’s too hip for me, eating a veggie dog in the pouring rain, and accidentally going to a bar filled with toasted middle aged women.

Quite a nice change. And I wore sequins! See how dapper we were?

And now for some recipes…

I paged through this past year’s posts in search of my favorite recipes from the past year. The recipes that I’ll continue to make this year– the things that stood out, that other people continue to ask for– and here they are! The top 15 of 2011 (I couldn’t limit it to just 10!).

What were your favorite things to make this past year?
