I thought I’d have a little fun and pluck the top recipes from GreenLiteBites for 09. At first I didn’t think I could find 20 then I started poking through the archives. I can’t believe how much I cooked this year! And to think I was getting down on myself for all of the eating out with the move and craziness this year.

Anyway, I ended up settling on 24. Did I post your favorite?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Jess’ Food Coma, I was just going to say the same thing! Roni must have really liked those chocolate ricotta rolls! ;)

    LOL thought I was off one! Now I have to figure out which one I’m missing!

    I LOVE this photographic retrospective. I am looking at the items and thinking I might try a few sooner rather than later. Thanks for sharing in this way.

    You posted 2 of my favs! The Turkey Stromboli and the bulgar stuffed pork! Sooo yummy! Thank you for all of the great recipes and inspiration in 2009! Happy New Year to you and your family!

    Two of my old stand-by’s didn’t make your list — pork and pepper stir fry — turkey/chicken soup with ww cous cous. I seriously make some combo of those meals at least once a month.

    Although, they’re all pretty tasty!

    January 1, 2010

    I did fix it. :)

    I totally agree wit you on the Honey Mustard Turkey Oat Burgers! Love those! I’ve made them at least 6-7 times.


    January 1, 2010

    Oh, I was totally going to say the broccoli salad, and then I went back and that was from 2008 – time flies! I can’t believe I haven’t tried more of these yet, but the Chocolate Ricotta rolls are on the menu for a little gathering tomorrow night.

    The Oat Cups are ALWAYS kept in my freezer for a quick pop in the microwave and the Porkchops and Mushroom Gravy is a husband favorite. Now I’m seeing other recipes that I somehow missed the first time around and need to give a try. Thanks so much Roni for all your inspiration! Happy & Healthy New Year to you and your family!!!


    January 1, 2010

    Your whole wheat pancakes are a staple in my house! Love your list, there’s a few I haven’t tried yet. I plan on trying them soon.


    January 1, 2010

    thanks for posting, roni! i read GLB all the time (i thought) but i missed a bunch of these and they look delicious. happy new year – here’s to a great 2010!

    Roni – I am de-lurking to say how much I love your blogs. You motivate me everyday! Also, I’ve made your banana oatmeal cups twice now, and I wanted to share a secret – over-ripe bananas are KEY. The first time I made these the bananas were barely ripe, but this time I made myself hold off until they were very ripe. What a difference! Others may already know this, but I’m not a good cook so I thought I’d share! Thanks for all the tips and recipes – you rock!
