I was given a rating, on a scale from 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent), for each dish. We often came to an agreement on the rating, but as a disclaimer, I will remind you I live with a strict judge who's strongly against grade inflation.
*Our cross-country move meant our cooking supplies (skillets, ingredients, etc.) were in storage for about 10 weeks.
64: the number of new recipes attempted in 2011
4: the greatest number of new recipes made in one single week
40: number of weeks I tried at least one new recipe
8: number of recipes that the Judge rated a 5!!
12: number of recipes that scored 4.5. Not bad.
0: number of recipes the Judge rated a 1. (One recipe almost got this grade, but I saved it at the last minute)
Now for the hits:
Sticky Bun Pull-Apart Bread
Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Crema
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Flourless Chocolate Torte with Raspberry Sauce
Edited to add: I added links to my inspiration recipes above (for the ones online). Hope you enjoy!
