I love doing year end roundups – this year, how about one for each month? Here is my favorite post for each month of 2012 – the recipes I have loved the most, and those that I loved writing the most – Hope it’s been a great 2012 for you and wish you all the best for 2013!


Creamy Cauliflower Soup – because I love hearty soups that celebrate otherwise mundane veggies :)


Cream of Jerusalem Artichoke and Celeriac Soup – my foray into root vegetables found their delight with jerusalem artichokes!

Gluten Free French Omelette – one of my favorite posts of the year, a debate about the legitimacy of naturally gluten free recipes in the GF world


Three Reasons I Love My Tripod – I love writing these amateur food photography posts, and I consider this one of my most useful

*as a side note, I realize several of my favorite posts happen to be soups – maybe we can continue this trend, make 2013 the year of soup?

Ooh, I just posted on Facebook yesterday how I’m sad that our CSA farm is struggling with brassica pests this year since I have a serious hankering for cauliflower soup. I try to use up the veggies we get in our box first, but your recipe may push me over the edge into veggie supplementation this rainy week…

What a great year overall! Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings. =)

I’m all about the soups too, but the sweet potatoes with chimichuri is calling my name.

I love your posts and love your photography. I read your post on the maple cream when you first put it out and put it on the to-do list for ‘some’ time, but now that you mention it again, you’ve got me salivating. I’m making it this week! Happy New Year to you and your lovely growing family!

Oh yum – so many delicious looking recipes! I definitely want to try the Jerusalem artichoke soup – I tried some at a restaurant last night and immediately started looking for recipes afterwards! It was delicious. Anyway, beautiful blog! Keep up the good work.
