A recap of 2011: the favs and the faqs
Wow, so I cannot believe it’s really the end of 2011 (umm, I’m pretty sure it was just March) and I really can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for almost a year!! I had no idea how much fun it would be!! (and how much time it actually takes!)
Seriously though, thank you so much for every single comment and email, I get way more excited than an adult should over a comment on a recipe 🙂 But my confections are like my babies and it’s been so much fun to share them with you!
So here are my top 5 favorite posts from this year 🙂
Brown sugar, butter, pecans in an ooey-gooey mess smothering warm, yeast-y buns. They were the reason I decided I needed to blog, something this good has to be shared.
I had an awesome birthday this past year, these cupcakes made it even more awesome.
It’s chocolate and coffee. Do I really need to elaborate? This is by far the best ganache ever.
I really just wanted to make some doughnuts but somehow these were born. I’m so glad, because these are so good!
This is probably my most baked item this year (other than chocolate cupcakes in their many forms). It’s simple, it’s decadent and it takes less than an hour from start to finish. It was love at first bite.
And some random faqs because I’m sure you’re dying to know…

My favorite ingredient: butter. I’m convinced it’s the answer to pretty much any baking or cooking dilemma.
I like to wear socks when I bake. I don’t know why, I’ve just always liked to wear socks in the kitchen.
I hate tomatoes and mayonnaise. They are cringe-inducing.
My favorite kitchen purchase this year were my purple bowls. They totally rock and I’m sure they make food taste better.
I’m a bit bossy. I think it comes with being the oldest child.
I’m way more accident prone than I thought! My poor left hand has been through a lot this past year 🙂
My baking goals for next year: bread, bread and more bread! I don’t have a phobia of corn syrup but I don’t believe it belongs in my bread, so I would like to get to the point where I only feed my family bread I’ve baked. That and candy because I have an insane sweet tooth.
Thank you again for reading and sharing with me this past year! It’s been fun and I’m really looking forward to more baking next year!!
