Best of 2011: My Favourites

Happy New Year!!! It’s hard to believe that 2011 has come & gone. I am sure many of you will agree with me – 2011 seriously flew by. It was quite a memorable year. Jesse and I bought our first home, my little sister got engaged, we went to Las Vegas for the first time, our friends Ben & Sara got married in September, our friends Patrick & Stephanie got engaged, and Jesse and I went to New York City for nine days in the fall (bucket list item completed!). And to ring in the new year, we attended our friends Robyn and Andrew’s wedding yesterday and danced the night away. We celebrated at midnight with some great friends and tasty champagne. A great way to start 2012!

2011 also saw a lot of cooking & baking in our new kitchen. I cannot tell you how excited I am to get into the kitchen and accomplish many of my cooking & baking goals in 2012. I am also looking forward to posting a lot more in the new year and providing you with more delicious vegetarian dishes & delicious sweet treat recipes.

Do you have any baking or cooking goals for 2012?

Yesterday I read through all my blog posts from 2011 to see which items were my favourites. It became very obvious as I searched through the recipes – I made a lot of cupcakes in 2011! *hah* I made chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes, pineapple coconut cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting, vanilla cupcakes with white chocolate frosting, eggnog cupcakes, pink champagne cupcakes and Easter basket cupcakes

After much deliberation, I decided on the following recipes as my favourites in 2011. What were your favourite recipes of 2011?

My Favourite Cupcakes of 2011

Beyond cupcakes, I made a number of other delicious desserts in 2011 to treat my friends and family. One of my favourite desserts of 2011 was the Whipped Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie. Much to my annoyance, the photo does not do it justice!
