Happy New Year all! 2010 was a wonderful year, just like every year of life so far. Some highlights were going to New York with my DB, getting published in Australia, and having my first surgery (appendicitis)! I thought I’d do a recap of 2010 with my favorite post from each month. Here goes!
January: Everything Cookies. These hold a special place in my heart. This is the cookie that made me love hearty cookies.
February: Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake. I could eat the whole plate of these. Soft, fluffy, and cinnamon sugar. What can go wrong?
March: Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread. My favorite simple banana bread. I’ve tried TONS of recipes before and this one still stands strong.
April: Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies. I think this is one that you guys loved the most. A cookie inside of a cookie. Brilliant.
May: Alton Brown’s The Chewy. A versatile cookie base that goes well with any add-ins. The options are endless!
June: Brooklyn Blackout Cupcakes. Only a few ingredients with a knockout taste. Plus, every blog has to have cupcakes!
July: Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies. This one’s another crowd favorite. The best way of using up Nutella so far.
August: NY Style Crumb Cake. Something simple for the ones that like classics. The crumb topping alone is enough to make a man turn his head.
September: Chocolate Pudding Cake. Every girl needs chocolate in her life. This will be sure to satisfy those cravings. You know what I’m talking about, ladies!
October: Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake. I love all things cinnamon and sugar.
November: Sour Cream Apple Bars. I guess we should probably add some fruit to this list and make it semi healthy.
December: Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies. A more complex recipe for our over achievers. We have fruit on our list, let’s add some vegetables!
I hope everyone started off their year with a kick! Southern California decided to start off with snow for the first time since I was two. Believe me, we’re all still shocked. I spent the first day of 2011 with a mock bridal photoshoot! Here’s a little snippet:
