Let’s do a count down on 2017 Top 6 recipes!
It has been a crazy year! With breaking news comes at us every couple days, there had been a lots of emotions (sadness, anger, and fear). That means we had been doing plenty of stress eating. Hope 2018 will be better!
Personally, it has been great! Bryan and I still overjoy about the trip to Kyoto, Osaka and Nara. That magical snow in Kyoto was one of the most memorable things. We wish we can be there every day!
Blog wise, I worked on getting the site to run a bit faster with the help of Bryan. I’m happy with the result. I also got the opportunities to meet up with 3 food bloggers, Bonnie from Thirsty For Tea, Nami from Just One Cookbook, and Maggie from Omnivore’s Cookbook. It’s amazing how the internet and the real world connects. I am so thrilled to get to know these talented people in person. I’m inspired and I hope to do better in the coming year.
Thanks all of you for another great year! I’m looking forward to bringing you more delicious recipes in 2018! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Shall we start the 2017 favorite recipes count down?
6. Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake – This pretty 6-inch cheesecake was really perfect for a small party! Who wouldn’t love a good chocolate, raspberry and cream cheese combination?
5. Sangchu Geotjeori (Korean Lettuce Salad) – This salad is unique and different. With a little kick, it makes an excellent vegetable side dish to go with any meat!
4. Japanese Egg Salad Sandwich with Bacon and Coleslaw – I LOVE this sandwich and would love to have it every morning. This recipe was a copy cat sandwich from one of the cafes in Kyoto that we visited. It’s full of surprising flavors!
3. Double Chocolate Blueberry Muffins – This is on my baking list once blueberries are in season. The dark chocolatey flavor works so well with the sweet and tart blueberries. I love that I can keep them in freezer and reheat in the morning.
2. Coconut Red Bean Pudding – This Chinese dessert is popular during Chinese New Year. Sweet coconut milk flavored pudding filled with tender red bean. Excellent sweet to serve all year round.
1. Mini Pink Lemon Baked Donuts – Surprise and NOT surprise! After seeing this post, Bryan would ask me to make him these ASAP! These baked donuts were super moist with a hint of citrus and fragrant. Even if you can’t find pink lemons, you can still bake them with regular lemons!
