My favorite Recipes of 2017 ~ these are the ones I personally loved, and if you missed them, I recommend giving them a try. 2017 was a pretty tasty year!
I love to inject a bit of fresh crunch into my mid-winter diet and this bowl does the trick. The falafel is a brilliant emerald green inside thanks to tons of fresh herbs. A yummy SHRIMP PAD THAI was another highlight of February.
I developed this recipe straightaway after having an amazing one at a Thai restaurant. I think my version turned out even better.
This colorful dip/salsa was not only a favorite of mine, it was a huge hit with readers. It’s beautiful, healthy, and fun to make. I like to serve it as a side salad with burgers, grilled fish, or chicken.
This isn’t my recipe, but Ina is a hero of mine, and her cupcakes are the bomb. My TROPICAL HOT DOG BAR was another favorite from the month of May.
It’s such a thrill to be able to make your own authentic Asian food at home. All you need are the right ingredients and a few simple techniques. This noodle bowl was a big hit at our house.
I love these bars, end of story. Try them once and you’ll be making them for the rest of your life.
This salsa is mind blowing ~ the dark color comes from charring fresh tomatoes and peppers and then blending them into this rich puree. It’s not to be missed. August was also the month I brought back these unique MOROCCAN LEMON AND CARDAMOM MEATBALLS from the archives.
I had a hard time choosing between this fluffy cake and my EASY LOW SUGAR WINE JELLY.
This homemade liqueur was one of the highlights of 2017. Drink it straight up, in cocktails, or in coffee, but definitely try it. Makes the perfect host gift, too. I loved it so much I also made a non-alcoholic version this month, too: DRINKABLE NUTELLA.
I couldn’t stop eating this unusual salad, and it started me thinking about doing a series of hearty grain salads going forward into 2018. The gluten free craze has put whole grains in the shadows for a while, but I think they’re due for a comeback. On the other end of the spectrum but equally good were those MEATBALLS AL FORNO.
