Last week I introduced you to Nancy from Spicie Foodie; she has a monthly roundup for food bloggers to share their best recipe for that month. This time she’s making it the best recipe of the year… a tough call when you consider how many recipes I have posted since 01/01/10.
This left me pondering what would be the criteria for best recipe? My favorite? The creation I’m most proud of? The most popular? One that speaks to my cooking identity? All of the above? Well, I’m going to include a recipe from each of these criterion and let you decide which is Chef It Yourself’s best recipe for 2010, dig it?
So here they are, after going down memory lane, use the poll to select your favorite.
I absolutely love this recipe, it falls under the criteria of my favorite. There’s just something about Al Ajillo that makes me happy.
This was one popular post. It landed me on WordPress’ front page, aka Freshly Pressed. There’s no doubt the recipe was a delicious original, but I never expected it to go viral. Not quite, but work with me. Spareribs with Tamarind Glaze.
This one answers all the questions about my cooking identity, at least I think so. It brings Latin flavors to common American ingredients and cooking techniques from various cuisines. Achiote & Herbs Turkey.
This one did it all. I was incredibly proud of it, I loved it, it was crazy popular and it speaks to my Latin background. Amazing bringing all of this together in one plate. Chicken in Beer.
If you’ll take a couple of seconds to vote in the poll, I’ll be forever in your debt. I have to submit the recipe before month’s end, so I’ll keep this little poll open until Thursday, December 23rd. Go on, do the clicky.
