Recipes in Review 2008: What worked & What didn't

14 years ago

I'm a little late at posting this, but it's time to review what recipes you tried this year turned out to be da' bomb or just plain bombed.

Here's my list:

The Good:

- Jessy's Spicy Cold Soba Noodles (OMG these are SO SO SO yummy!)

- The Spicery Rolls (not sure who's recipe this is, but the best rolls I've ever made. They make great bread crumbs too)

- Alexa's Cantonese Pork (Perfect! They went great with the soba noodles!)

- Jamie's Minestrone (a very delicious veggie soup. My go-to soup now)

- Caramel Cheetos (a cult following)

- Date Orange Nut Spread (a recipe I copied from somewhere, but it is devine with cheese, fruit, on toast, in cakes...anywhere!)

The Not-So Good:

- Annie's Salmon Quiche with Walnut Crumb Crust (loved the crust but the quiche didn't do anything for me. I didn't use fresh salmon, so that could have been it.)

- Heidi's Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (these were too cakey for my tastes and I found they didn't store very well)

- Ann T's Onion Rye Bread (For some reason, the bread didn't really have much flavor...maybe I espected the onion to come out more. Dunno')

So, what worked or didn't work for you this past year?
