My Top 12 of 2012

Since it’s customary at the end of the year to look back and reflect on the highlights of the year, I thought it would be fun to look back to see which posts that I shared in 2012 were the post popular with viewers. You’re looking at my four most-viewed recipes of 2012 above!

Starting with the my most viewed post of 2012, with an amazing 4465 page views, was my Grilled Rainbow Trout Tutorial.  I hope that means there was a lot of delicious fish on the grill last year ;…

The second most-viewed post was this Cauliflower Steak with Olive Relish and Tomato Sauce with 2637 page views.  It is so pretty and so delicious:

Number three was a post on a very healthy and delicious Green Soup with 2504 page views.  I plan on making this again in January after the gluttony of the holidays are over.  Green is good!…

Coming in fourth, was this unusual combination of  Lemon Tart with Chocolate Almond Crust  (so delicious!) with 2357 page views:

Fifth was this sweet and savory Salad for All Seasons with 1285 page views:

Sixth was a fairly recent post featuring a cookbook that I had won – Mamma Agata’s Eggplant Parmigiana with 1108 page views.  I see many more eggplants in my future after enjoying this:
Seventh and the last post to garner over 1000 page views was General Tsao’s Chicken with 1085 views:
Eleventh was this very recent post which received a lot of interest in a very short time – Brown Sugar, Fig and Rosemary Walnuts with 925 views (addictive and delicious!):

Last, my twelfth most viewed post of 2012, was Clam, Halibut and Sweet Corn Chowder with 850 page views.  This is a delicious treat during fresh corn season:

After reviewing these 12 most-viewed posts of 2012, I was interested to see that there were only two dessert posts that made the top twelve, six were vegetable/salad/meatless, two were seafood, one chicken and one pork. If that means we are all eating healthier wouldn’t that be a wonderful thing! 

I’d like to say goodbye to 2012 by wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2013!  May your kitchen be a source of fun and creativity where family and friends gather. Thank you again for your support and encouraging comments!
