Last Day for Give Away and Ten Greatest Hits

Be sure to scroll down and submit your entry to my first give-away. You've got a shot at four great prizes, from Bundt and coffee cake pans, to Dorie Greenspan and Ina Garten's latest cookbooks. In honor of my 100th post, I've been reviewing and reminiscing about the greatest hits. I listen to my readers, and I'm certain you have better taste than I do. It was hard to decide! I stand by all my recipes and love to share them with you. I tried to focus on some of the earlier ones, but if there was more space, I'd also include Peach Barbecue Chicken, Chocolate Pudding Ice Cream, Pantry Hummus with Cumin Tortilla Chips, Honey and Lime Cilantro Chicken, Whole Wheat coblerettes, Lemon Glazed Scones, Summer Vegetable Fajitas, and the Tomatillo Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing. But here they are....the 10 greatest hits since I started blogging a few months ago....

1. Buttermilk Fudge Brownies..... Fudgey and Cakey at once. 2. Spice Rubbed Chicken.... You'll have a punch packing dinner on the table in ten minutes.
3. Fire Roasted Salsa.... Five minutes and you'll be dipping away.4. Flank Steak Tacos with Cilantro Slaw Cool and refreshing with a bit of heat and grilled meat. 5. Tricia Shaw's Baked Beans Smoky, Sweet and Irresistible6. Sweet and Tangy Root Beer Baby Back Ribs- A reduced soda pop glaze coats these babies.
7. Soy and Lime Tri Tip A simple marinade on a beefy cut. 8. Chocolate Glazed Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars I can't stop craving these hearty bars. 9. Salsa Verde Turkey Burgers My Award winning Rachael Ray burger 10. Meyer Lemon Baby Cakes Soft and Tender Lemon Cakes with Candied Zest

Coming Tomorrow:

The Winners of my First Give Away

plus Sticky Milk Chocolate Smore's Bars

I'm still shaking my head over the white peaches.

Mary Ann said...

great list of greatest hits. Those baby cakes look very tempting! not to mention all the other yummy stuff

That salsa looks great. We make a lot of homemade salsas (so much better than store bought) and I think we might just have to try yours!

Aggie said...

I have to say, I truly enjoyed your Spice Rubbed Chicken...and the leftovers!

Prudy, that's a home run! You just reminded me that I need to make those tacos! I printed it out a while ago and tucked it away. The Husband was grumbling about all of the mexican we'd been having.
Stop by my place, I finished your meme. Thanks again for the award!
