Best Recipes Of 2009

Last week I had the difficult task of choosing only one book that I had read last year as the Best Book of '09. But it's impossible to choose only one recipe as the Best of '09. I posted over 30 recipes--some were new and some were already family favorites-and they were all good so I decided to pick 10 recipes that really stood out from the bunch. Still, not an easy task but with some input from WD I came up with a list of the Top 10 Recipes of 2009.

Pesto: I could eat this stuff with a spoon. And in a box. And with a fox...in a house...with a mouse...anywhere! (vague, mangled reference to Green Eggs and Ham with all credit, devotion and honor to Dr. Seuss for inspiration. Please don't sue me.)

Banana Pudding: Leave it to Paula Deen to put cream cheese in banana pudding. Yum.

Sugar Cookies: This is Big Pup's great-grandmother's recipe and it's his favorite. Mine too.

Triple Chocolate Trifle: Do I even need to explain why this made it in the top 10? Oreos, chocolate mousse, brownies, hello?!

Praline Cheesecake: In all fairness, I have never made this. But I have devoured it on numerous occasions. It's my mom's signature dessert.

Sweet Potato Chips: Forget french fries, this has become our go to side for burgers and sandwiches.

Cabernet Sauvignon Hot Fudge Sauce: I could eat this stuff with a spoon. And on a boat. And with a goat...in the rain...on a train...anywhere! (vague, mangled reference to Green Eggs and Ham with all credit, devotion and honor to Dr. Seuss for inspiration. Please don't sue me.)

French Dip Sandwiches: It's meaty and cheesy and messy and easy and delicious-y.

Chicken Tacos: I'm pretty sure I can eat 20 of these.

Taco Soup: Another recipe from mom. It's a great slow cooker recipe that can feed a crowd.
