And so, before the midnight countdown, here is a countdown of my own. These were the top five most popular recipes on my blog, four of which made the FoodBuzz Top 9 thanks to all of you, and starting with the recipe I'm making tonight! Happy New Year!
One of the most amazing dishes we've ever had was at the 1770 House several years ago while on vacation in East Hampton. Back home, my email appeal to the chef for the recipe resulted in a warm reply and 3 pages of instructions. I surprised Brian with it that year and it's been our New Year's Eve tradition ever since. With gratitude to chef Matthew Birnstill for the recipe.
What could be bad about goat cheese, herbs and pastry!
This is still one of our favorite dressings. In fact, I just made a fresh batch a few days ago.
I wrote this when I was having a bad day and I was surprised and delighted by the response. Not only did you comment on the recipe but so many sympathized and hoped I was feeling better.
And, finally, the most popular post of all! Oh, boy, you all sure do love you some pumpkin scones. This recipe shot to the Top 9 immediately and continues to draw huge crowds. The recipe was an experiment and the results a happy accident. At this point I've made these scones lots of times for lots of people and they really are great, if I say so myself :)
