Best of 2012

Just before ringing in the new year, I thought I’d look back at a few of my favourite recipes I blogged about this year. I look forward to sharing many more food stories with you in the year ahead and thank you for all your comments and questions – they make this blog worth writing!

It’s hard to believe I started writing this little blog back in 2007 — when I didn’t yet know just how much food would become integral to my professional career. What started as a simple passion for making food at home and sharing it with like-minded readers has turned into my full-time occupation. Since starting my job as a Food Specialist for Canadian Living magazine, there are very little days where talking about a  new way to use an ingredient or thinking about a new dish to create isn’t on my mind.. and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

And now for the recipes, here is 2012’s top 6!

{1}Full-On Chocolate Tarts
{2} Seared Scallops with Lemony Parmesan Peas
{3}Steel-Cut Oats with Cinnamon Pears
{4} Pumpkin and Ginger Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches
{5} Grilled Radicchio and Caprese Salad
{6} Shallot and Herb Mussels (with Fries!)

For the rest of this post, please visit my blog at http://www.chocolateshavings.ca
Enjoy the read!
