2011 in review

12.30.11

I thought it would be fun to review 2011 through my blog! It’s been a busy year, but a really, really good one!

Here are some of my favorite posts from 2011:

Favorite Healthy Appetizer:

Thai Guacamole – from almost a year ago! SO good!

Favorite Cheese Appetizer: 

Roasted Grapes with Brie – need more.

Favorite New Social Media:

instagr.am. Love!

Favorite New Cheese: 

Burrata. Enough said.

Favorite Restaurant Trip:

It wasn’t documented on the blog, but the night after our wedding my parents, brother, and good friends all went out to D’Amico Kitchen in Minneapolis for a night full of laughs, reminiscing and some of my favorite people. A recent amazing meal at Mercato di Vetro comes in at a close second.

Favorite Breakfast: 

Hawaiian Breakfast. Rice + bacon + green onions + eggs.

Favorite Cocktail:

Mango Cucumber Wine Cooler – even though I spilled it all over the kitchen floor, it was so refreshing and I’m a sucker for cucumber cocktails. 

Favorite Entree: 

Easy Chicken Curry. Need this asap, SO good!

 Most Indulgent Meal: 

I dubbed it the engagement dinner - meat and potatoes (plus lots of butter and cream) for my midwestern man!

Favorite Sandwich: 

Artichoke, Spinach & White Bean Sandwich – vegan and delicious!

Favorite Daily Eats Post: 

I love doing the daily eats posts, I feel like it gives you a glimpse into my everyday life and shows you that Nutritionists can be healthy, but they can also enjoy burgers! The camp version was a favorite and brings back so many memories!

Favorite Wedding Picture:

So hard…there are so many that I love!

What an amazing 2011, I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for us! 

Thank YOU for reading and making this blog what it is, I wouldn’t be here without you!

    Yay! Love this post. :) And I remember that sandwich, too! It inspired me to make a pasta with artichokes and white beans. Keep up the great work in 2012!

    Instagram is probably my favorite new addiction of 2011 as well! I’ll have to find you on there (if I haven’t already)!

    Love the pic of you two…BEAUTIFUL!

    Thanks for reposting the grapes/brie. I need that, now. Must make!

    And D’Amico in Mpls…OMG I have been there about 872 times growing up. Always a winner. Cannot go wrong with that place. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

    Modern electric toothbrushes run on low voltage – typically 12v or less.
