It's that time of year, the week when we food bloggers look back over a year's worth of recipes and pick our favorites! I love-love-love this process! It really helps us hone our recipe collections, highlighting the best of the already very good, especially for sites like A Veggie Venture and my food column Kitchen Parade which by design, already post only really good recipes, the ones that work, the ones that are special or especially useful. (Here's the 2012 favorite recipes from Kitchen Parade too.)
But I also love all the many sources of "best of the year" lists for movies, books, gadgets, etc. So this year, I'm collecting "best of the year" lists on Pinterest. Follow me there and you'll see all the new entries over the next couple of weeks on this board, Best of the Year Lists & Favorites.
But okay, here you go, my favorite recipes for 2012. Do we share some favorites? Have I completely missed one you loved? Let me know in the comments!
All Year Long:
February:Chickpea Cakes are made with inexpensive canned chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans, they're the beans we most often choose to make hummus) but if you're not in the mood for "cake" then call these moist, fresh-flavored something else, maybe "chickpea patties" or "chickpea burgers".
SO THAT'S IT!
What do you think?! I hope you like the collection. But if I've missed a favorite recipe of yours, please do let me know. If we share a favorite, I'd love to know that too!
