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.

    Isn’t it fun to go back and see all the recipes we tried.

    Everything looks amazing and so healthy.

    I counted and was shocked to see that I made 122 recipes that were hits over the past year!

    Happy cooking in 2012!

    I LOVE this! Seriously!!! I love the fact that you took your top 30 and put them in one spot! I can imagine it was hard to pick only 30 because there were so many great ones!

    I had to laugh out loud and cheer a little bit that the banana soft serve and the mock cookie dough made the top 30! ;O)

    Looking forward to another exciting year! Thanks for all you do Roni – I appreciate you!

    I am really surprised the bacon egg rollup thing you make didn’t make the top 30 because you ate that often for breakfast this past year.

    Aaack! I forgot about that one!

    Thanks for posting these Roni. I have a 17 year old daughter who’s a vegetarian, and I’m not the worlds most inventive cook (and she’s not the most “open minded vegetarian”), so I really struggle to make food that all of us can eat and is healthy. I have found a lot of good recipes on your site… now just to get up the nerve to try them. I hope you have a great new year!!

    Santa Fe Chicken with the options was a favorite of mine!
