My favorite recipes from 2010, just 12 of the best recipes of the year. Made without processed food, these are everyday recipes, ones to make again and again. They are recipes that express the hallmarks of the Kitchen Parade style, 'fresh' and 'easy' and 'flavor-forward' and 'seasonal'.
Earlier this month, I received a letter from Patricia, a Kitchen Parade reader. She wrote, "At this time of the year, especially as we become older, it is important to count our blessings and tell those who have touched/and are touching our lives." She went on to thank me for making her life better. (Wow. Yes, I cried.)
But honestly, Kitchen Parade may come from my heart but without readers like Patricia -- without YOU as a reader -- and without your encouragement whether in comments, Facebooks "likes" or an e-mail subscription, this website would be a much lesser place, it might not exist at all.
So let ME thank you, for reading, for your encouragement, for your trust, for your curiosity, for the privilege of sharing kitchens.

In the center, the very first shot, straight out of the camera, no reading, no manual, of my much-loved Nikon D90 and its 35mm wide-angle lens. I'm still learning my way around the camera but my, how Nikon and I think alike. The recipe is Refried Bean Sauce with Eggs on Top.
