Top 10 for 2009
I thought it would be fun to wrap up the year with a Top 10 List of the Most Popular Posts of 2009 on SFTF. I bet all the little blog posts out there in the world wish they could grow up to be on this list one day. Okay, so I’ve had a little too much holiday punch, but the truth is that you lovely readers have really helped me this past year to hone my recipe instincts and broaden my creativity. It has been wonderful sharing yet another passing of the seasons and their produce with you. I do hope you’ll make a resolution to eat more local food in 2010!
We’ll start from the bottom up…
Oh, I’m so glad this made it into the Top 10 Most Popular Posts of 2009 as it’s certainly in my own personal Top 10 Recipes of All Time List. I love how moist and fragrant this loaf is and how much it reminds me of my grandmother.
A Scottish dish, this recipe came from one of my favorite new cookbooks in 2009, Eat Feed Autumn Winter by Anne Bramely. It’s a great dish for the deep dark days of winter ahead of us.
So fruity and the perfect way to showcase in-season strawberries, I couldn’t stop gobbling up this ice cream made with cold rich raw cow’s milk.
Ah, this makes me miss summer and homegrown cucumbers so much! This classic Greek dip is creamy and brightly flavored…how many days until spring?
I am so glad I made this Top 10 List as it reminded me about this amazingly scrumptious cupcake recipe! So moist, so tender, so full of flavor! And you can practically convince yourself that these are “healthy” enough to not dislodge any of your New Year’s resolutions to eat better.
A locally grown lemon in Pennsylvania is hard to come by, but when I got one from my little lemon tree, I put it to good use in these heavenly bars.
A delicious breakfast dish that embraces the humble yet beautiful farm fresh eggs.
Popular when I first posted this recipe back in 2007, the pictorial make-over in 2009 and an online feature in Organic Gardening made this cake an even bigger hit.
At number 2 is another list of 10…who knew you were all so interested in learning about gardening!? Oh, wait, that makes sense since you all love locally grown food as much as I do and nothing’s better than homegrown!
Though it is so silky and delicious, I still can’t believe this recipe I essentially goofed-up is the most popular recipe of 2009 on SFTF!
