Wow! 100 posts* later and I am still blogging. While on one hand 100 seems like a big number, looking back over the last few months I realize it got here in a hurry.
I have noticed many bloggers use their 100th post as an opportunity to look back at their blog and pick out some favorite posts. For food bloggers this inevitably means selecting their favorite recipes. In that spirit here is my list of the ‘Top 10’ dishes I have made since I started the Cooking with an Evolved Dad blog back in January. Note that I found it hard enough to limit myself to just 10, and within these couldn’t even begin to rate them from 1 – 10, so don’t read anything into the order in which they are listed!
Love to hear your opinion on these as well!
Hey, it’s from my mom’s recipe. Enough said.
I’ve made these a few times, including as a prize on my 75th post. They are truly amazing.
When I created this post I said it is one was worthy of a top ranking – and I stand by that.
This is a very simple dish to put together and oh so delicious. It should be in every cook’s repertoire.
For as much as I love the Expresso Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies, this Black and Tan Cake is the best dessert I have ever made. It was harder to make than most desserts I have tackled, but very glad I tried.
As good as any Thai meal I have ever had in a restaurant.
A shout out to my mother-in-law and her famous red sauce.
Anything I have made more than once deserves serious consideration on this list. Both times I have made these for crowds and both times they quickly disappeared. Note that it was a close decision between these and the PB&J Wings I made earlier this year.
We make lots of soup during the cold weather months, and this was my favorite of those. A close second to this was the Brazilian Fish Stew I made in March.
I was on a meatloaf kick earlier this year and made some great variations on this classic comfort food, including this version that packs a nice kick. I did have a hard time deciding between this and Amy’s Chicken Pot Pie when thinking back over great comfort food I’ve made.
This brings back great memories of vacations on the Cape with my folks, and is a delicious dish to make for a weekend brunch.
* In addition to the 100 blog posts I have written there have been another handful of dishes that I have taken photos of and posted on my Facebook page, but who’s counting? Certainly not me, as discerning readers will notice that my top 10 list contains 11 entries!
