Best Recipes of 2008

Asking a cook to pick out favorite recipes is an impossible task, like asking a mother to single out her favorite child. These recipes, they're my babies and I love them all! Sure, there are days when one 'baby' is better than another, that's the very 'nature' – literally – of seasonal cooking. But pick, I have, my favorite recipes for 2008, just one recipe a month. What do you think, have I picked your favorites too?!! Plus, I think you'll love what's in store for 2009, including the celebration of Kitchen Parade's 50th anniversary, back to my mother's first columns in 1959.
Happy New Year's to all!

  1. Alanna,
    I am going to get Fat!

    Each time I hovered over the picture, I said to self, 'Mmmm, I have to make that, and this, and this, oh shoot, just make them all!' You are going to get me into trouble, girl!
    Happy New Year's Eve, and be careful if you are traveling on any roadway tonight.
    Hope to be home by about 9 after our New Year's Day Auction preview frm 5 to 8 p.m. tonight, for some serious James Bond dvd watching, and perhaps a little bit of drooling on my part....can you say where is the sponge to catch the drool?
    Huggs, Cait

  2. Well, I guess you know I'm going to vote for February's dish because of the slow cooker beans!

  3. Everything looks tasty and healthy. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

    Wishing you and yours a healthy, peaceful and prosperous 2009.


Post a Comment

Thank you for taking a moment to write! I read each and every comment, for each and every recipe. If you have a specific question, it's nearly always answered quick-quick. But I also love hearing your reactions, your curiosity, even your concerns! When you've made a recipe, I especially love to know how it turned out, what variations you made, what you'll do differently the next time. ~ Alanna
