My Favorite Recipes from 2012

JanuaryWhite Chocolate Frito Popcorn This stuff is seriously addictive. The combination of sweetness from the M&Ms and white chocolate and the salty crunchiness from the popcorn and fritos is indescribable. I took this to a Super Bowl Party and it was a huge success.

FebruaryRoasted Garlic and Chicken Soup Hubby absolutely adores garlic. This soup has a rich garlicy flavor. I served this with freshly baked bread multiple times last winter.

MarchBrowned Butter Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies This has become my go-to chocolate chip cookies recipe. I’ve made it more times than I can count with a variety of mix-in options.

AprilPurple Ombre Cake This is quite an impressive cake. But don’t let it intimidate you. You can break up the process and do a lot of it ahead of time. It’s perfect for any special occasion. And even if you don’t make this overly impressive cake, be sure to make the passion fruit curd that I used for filling. It’s divine.

MayGiant M&M Cookies I love M&M Cookies. These cookies are the size of your hand and perfectly gooey on the inside with a crisp outer edge.

JunePatriotic Quake Cake I really got in to cakes in 2012 apparently. This one was so fun to make and I can’t make it again for another holiday.

JulyRoasted Cherry Brownie Cheesecake This recipe warmed me up to the idea of cherries. I’m really not a fan at all. But when you roast them, then pour them between and over a layer of brownie and a layer of cheesecake, how can you go wrong?

AugustPeach, Bacon, Avocado Sandwich Peaches are my all-time favorite fruit. This sandwich was very unique and delicious.

SeptemberBanana Coconut Bread A coworker of mine called this exquisite. Enough said.

OctoberApple 7 Layer Magic Bars This twist on a classic recipe had a combination of amazing fall flavors – homemade applesauce, apples, coconut, white chocolate, and cinnamon.

NovemberBoston Cream Pie Cheesecake Cake This was the only cheesecake cake I made last year. That’s sad because I love them. It had all the flavors of the a Boston Cream Pie without the pastry cream.

DecemberPecan Pie Brownies These brownies are the stuff of dreams. A fudgey brownie topped with a layer of pecan pie baked right on top. Amazing.

    Try putting some ground coriander seeds in the glaze as well, and you have a belgian witbier cupcake. Turned out awesome! Thanks for the great recipie

    Thinking about making these for the superbowl, do you think i could add food coloring to the glaze? Or would these work still with a buttercream? I want to do team colors. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Sorry for not responding sooner. Food coloring could definitely be added to the glaze. Did you end up doing that or doing buttercream?

    This looks great! How strong is the Hefeweizen laste in the actual cupcake without glaze? I’m making a cake for a brewery with a Hef that just won an award and was going to go for a flavored crusted buttercream to draw on instead of glaze and just wondering the taste of the cake. Thank you and love your site!

      This was a guest post and I didn’t actually make the recipe. I would assume it’s pretty subtle…
