Just because is a good reason to make these.

As I looked back on all of the recipes posted in 2011 I reflected on my personal favorites, and those that were your favorites.

Often times they were one in the same.

These delicious recipes include a side dish, a main dish and desserts.

The side and main dishes are made with pasta, potatoes and vegetables.

And the desserts include cookies and fun food crafts for the holidays.


Let’s check out these recipes.

Below each of the following images, there’s a link to the respective post with step-by-step instructions, pictures and a printable recipe.

Pumpkin Pudding Puff Pastry on Plate

10.  Pumpkin Pudding Puffs – These are made with frozen puff pastry shells.

It’s like magic when they bake….they go from a small frozen disc to a beautiful light and flakey shell.

All you add is the pudding and whip cream.

Kiwi Berry Smoothie

9.  Kiwi Berry Smoothie – A great way to use berries and it’s healthy too.

This recipe includes blueberries, strawberries, kiwi fruit, and flaxseed.  It’s sooo good.

Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes

8.  Goblin Tootsie Roll Cupcakes – These cupcakes are scary.  But, I can overlook that because the goblins and trees with eyes are so cute.

Oh, and they taste good too.

Bow Tie Pasta and Sausage in Pan

7.  Bow Tie Pasta and Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet Meal – This is a super simple meal made in one skillet.

The bow tie pasta makes it look so pretty and the ricotta and mozzarella cheese top it off perfectly.

Toffee Caramel Cookies

6.  Toffee, Caramel and White Chocolate Cookies – These cookies have the best buttery toffee taste.

The thinness of the cookie gives them the perfect light crunch.

Fried Potatoes in Skillet

Cheesy Jalapeno Fried Potatoes

5.  Cheesy Jalapeno and Bacon Skillet Potatoes – Fried potatoes with some flare….bacon, jalapenos, then topped with melted cheese.

Great for breakfast with some eggs.

Baked Herb Parmesan Potato Slices

It’s really easy to make and a crowd-pleaser every time.

Marshmallow Fun Pops on plate

3.  Marshmallow Fun Pops – Here is another all time favorite.

Although I didn’t think of it when I made these…they are great for DIY wedding favors.

A number of wedding planning sites featured these cuties  because they can be customized.

They are a fun and easy favor for any type of party or event.

Christmas Tree Cone Dessert

2.  Candy Cookie Cones – Yet another all time favorite.  These are unique and fun for kids (and adults) to decorate (and eat too).
