Another Year Gone By

Another year is coming to a close. This year has been a roller coaster ride to say the least for many, myself included. Through the highs and the lows, one of the things that have remained constant is my love of cooking for my family and friends and sharing them with you.

To wrap up this year, here are some of my favorite dishes, and yours as well it seems, that I had posted throughout the year,

This was a breakfast hit:

Cheesy Egg In A Hole With Bacon

Who can resist some hearty toast with gooey cheese, bacon and a sunny side up egg.

Beef Tips In A Marsala Wine Sauce

How can you go wrong with tender, flavorful beef tips that is cooked in a wine sauce. This little gem was in the top 5 for you guys as well when I looked at the numbers.

Bacon Cheese Chorizo Burger with Whiskey Sautéed Onions

Chorizo, bacon, cheese and whiskey sautéed onions…..need I say more?

This burger will definitely satisfy all of your burger cravings.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

This is a great snack for those hot summer days, or even all year around if you are a lover of ice cream like me. This one was easy to make with pre made cookie dough, but looked and tasted like the cookies were made from scratch.

Oven Roasted Potatoes with Pancetta

These have become one of my go to favorite side dishes. Many of you seemed to like the blend of rosemary, butter, sage and pancetta as well. This is such an easy side dish that that can be put together and tossed in the oven. We all like easy that’s for sure.

Baked Cheesy Chicken Empanadas

This was one of those dishes that was a personal accomplishment for me, making empanadas from scratch. My mother in law had taught me a while back how to make homemade tortillas. These make a great meal or even lunch. They are filled with seasoned chicken and smothered in cheese. But as noted in the recipe, don’t fret about having to make homemade tortillas, that was more of my personal goal. Pizza or pastry dough work just as well.

Chicken Parmigiana

Last but not least, this is one of this years most favorite comfort foods both mine and yours that I had posted. What could be more comforting than crispy breaded chicken with marinara sauce and smothered in melty cheese.

So those are the most popular and some of my favorite dishes and side dishes of the year.

I hope you ring in the new year with laughter, love, positivity and some great food. Whether you will be celebrating it with a group of family and friends, or like me and my hubby, having a nice evening in devouring some Chinese food all night long.

I wish you all the best. I hope you continue this journey with me and my little blog in the next year. I can’t wait to see what new ideas it will bring.

See you all in the next year my friends.
