Apple Cider Caramels were a huge hit, and after snacking on more than my fair share, I used them in these salted caramel apple crumble bars and caramel-stuffed brown butter cookies. Not bad at all. The extra step of reducing apple cider down to a thick syrup really takes these little babies to the next level of caramel perfection.
When I made this Blueberry-Swirl Bundt Cake, I caught myself eating bite after bite every time I wandered into the kitchen. It was bright, sweet, and so so good. And it's perfectly acceptable to eat it for breakfast.
Here's another recipe I was holding out on you guys - sorry! Grilled Tuna and Avocado Salad was one of the first dinners I made after we got married, so it's always held a special place in my heart. It's so bright, fresh, and summery, and man does it make me miss hot weather!
This Flat-Roasted Chicken with Tiny Potatoes was not only one of our favorite dinners of the year, but it also led me to master my spatchcocking technique! I finally understand what the fuss is about roasted chicken!
Corn Risotto-Stuffed Poblanos combined so many of my favorite things: sweet corn, risotto, beer, and poblano peppers. It was such a great summer dinner, and one I'll definitely be repeating for years to come.
It's not very often that I repeat recipes, but this Spicy Cilantro-Grilled Chicken made many appearances on our table this summer. Served with fresh watermelon and grilled corn on the cob, it really was my favorite summer dinner. And pssst - the leftovers made some killer nachos!
2013 was the Year of the Pizza. Seriously, we probably ate homemade pizza 3-4 times a month - both because we love it so much, and because the kids are obsessed with helping me make it. And out of all the pizza we made and ate, Pizza alla Vodka was by far my favorite. Vodka sauce, spicy sausage, roasted tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella. Yes, please.
I know it sounds really weird to use a corn puree as the sauce on a pizza, but I'm begging you to make this Pizza with Corn, Tomatoes, and Mozzarella this summer.
It may not seem like anything special, but there's something about this Sausage, Provolone, and Spinach Pizza that we just love. I almost always have all these ingredients on hand, so it's perfect for a last-minute dinner, and it always hits the spot.
Happy New Year, everyone!
