It wouldn't be right to dwell on the negative...so after--er--showcasing some of our culinary missteps in our last post, we wanted to recall some of 2011's high points...such as:
Beck's Cajun Cafe is good on everything--shrimp, salmon, chicken, burgers, broccoli, potatoes, yams, steak....we haven't tried it in coffee or on vanilla ice cream yet, but nearly everything else!
Raspberry Linzer Tart this was delicious, beautiful, a real show stopper, and best of all, not terribly difficult. I avoid rolling dough like the plague, and it was not required for this recipe except for the decorative star cookies on top. I brought this to two parties whose hosts asked me to make dessert and both times it was a huge hit.
We look forward to another year of culinary discoveries and excitement. We still expect to fall flat on our foodie faces now and then, but that's all part of the adventure...
