My Top 12 of 2012

I wanted to share my favorite dozen recipes from 2012. I was reading down the list of recipes that I have posted this year (64 of them!) and I started drooling at the memory of eating some of my favorites. Unfortunately some of my favorites are off the menu at the moment due to my food sensitivities, but hopefully that will be temporary. In the meantime at least I have the pictures to drool over :)

These are not necessarily the recipes that got the most views or comments, but they are my personal favorites, for one reason or another.

Ok, I confess…..there are actually 13 recipes in this line up if you were to count them (baker’s dozen, he he!) but I was really having trouble deciding which one to cut out.

Breakfast:

Raw Liver Smoothie. Ah yes, my somewhat controversial smoothie recipe. An excellent way to eat raw liver without tasting it in the slightest. But I understand that it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of smoothie :)

Potato and Egg Scramble w/ Chive Flowers. So tasty and fun with the pretty little chive flowers. Can’t wait until they’re back in season!

Multi-purpose Crepes/Wraps. I seriously make these ALL THE TIME! They are so versatile, I don’t know where I’d be without this recipe.

Lunch:

Ginger and Lime Chicken Salad. The flavors in this are so good – zesty and refreshing.

Salmon Salad Spread. Yum! I love this….but sadly salmon is one of the foods I can’t eat right now, so I have been making this salad using sardines instead of salmon. Still good, but not quite as good as salmon :(

Dinner:

Spaghetti Squash Bake. I love love LOVE this dish, and I know thanks to your comments that it has been very popular. Low carb and GAPS-friendly, but extremely satisfying and filling.

Moroccan Chicken. I love the favors in this dish. It’s really simple to prepare, but oh so tasty.

Italian Chicken and Sausage Casserole. This is a fantastic hearty dish for the colder weather we’re having right now. The chicken is cooked on the bone and becomes melt-in-your-mouth tender and falls off the bone. Yum!

Soup:

Carrot and Cardamom Soup w/ Coconut Milk. Hhmm, cardamom, I love thee so. Cardamom is a magical spice, and perfect in this soup.

Thai Beef Coconut Soup. I made this soup for dinner the other week and it was just as good as we remembered from the first time. The key to a soup like this is a good beef stock.

Mexican Hamburger Soup. Hearty, tasty, simple!

Dessert:

Double Chocolate Date and Almond Cookies. Hhmm….me like! But me can’t have right now :( Can you believe that I tested sensitive to caffeine?? Seriously?

Condiment:

Beet and Cabbage Kraut. My all-time favorite veggie ferment!

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we do. I look forward to sharing many more in 2013!

Happy New Year everyone!
