Hello Food Lovers!!!

So what was your favorite meal that you made in 2011??? and Why???

Mine would have to be the Paella I cooked this year..It turned out amazing and you can always change the paella with different meats and seafood. Give it a try…Its great for a New years eve platter as well.

    Check out my blog: http://achefinthyme.wordpress.com/

    1. Thanks…and that sounds amazing ; )

  2. I have never made a paella before, but maybe it could be a new goal for 2012. 🙂

    1. It is an amazing dish and super easy to make…if you need the recipe let me know ; )

  3. My best was a deconstructed beef wellington – pan-fried fillet of beef with french mustard, served on a puff pastry parcel filled with a mushroom duxcelle. It was accompanied with spinach, triple-cooked chips and a red wine reduction.

    I’ve only made paella once, but it didn’t turn out too well. I blame the quality of the seafood and my wife for adding extra stock when I wasn’t looking!

    1. I have never tried to make Beef Wellington but it sounds mouth watering…..and this is why my husband is not allowed in the kitchen while im cooking hahah…he is just my taste tester ; )

    homemade goat cheese asparagus ravioli in lemon pesto sauce (I talk about it a little on my blog: http://mentalmanna.wordpress.com/2011/10/05/the-best-pasta-ive-ever-had/)! it was a lot easier to make than I had expected and it came out AMAZING!

    I also threw together a delicious fruit pie dessert with leftover ingredients in my fridge, but details on that one will remain a secret–I’m convinced that one day I’ll open a bakery and they’ll make me rich.

    1. That sounds very intersting might have to try ur recipe out one day..;)…Keeping certain recipes a sercet is always a good idea especially if you have a certain special something in it. 😉

  5. Mine was more of an appetizer, I made a new style Jalapeno popper for my Bacon Party, Love love! 🙂

    1. Bacon party??? That sounds different….Love Jalapeno poppers

  7. Thanks for following me! You are my first! I am now following you as well. Since I’m a novice, my favourite meal was a dessert. It was my Chocolate Coconut Macaroons I did for my 100 Day Challenge. Mind you I was suppose to do 10 recipes but only managed 3 😦 One of them was the macaroons which got the most feed back as I baked them for a charity bake sale. Good luck with the blog!

    1. Thanks for following me as well….Never give up on the challnges you will be suprised on what you can make if you make it fun and not hard work ;)…Happy New Year

    My favorite dish that I made this year is probably the Sweet Potato and Tempeh Shepard’s pie I made for T-giving: http://cassieknoxvillian.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/sweet-potato-and-tempeh-shepards-pie-vegan/

    The paella looks delicious!

    1. Wow, that sounds great! I may try your recipe this week. After all the holiday food, I need something like this. The paella can be done so many different ways, but my guests always tell me it comes out tasting amazing… and I agree 🙂
