It is always intriguing to compare what BMH readers view and discover which restaurants and recipes are the most clicked versus our favorites.
In 2011, readers gravitated towards the No Bake Mascarpone Cheesecake, Shiritaki Fettucine Alfredo and proteins Chinese Bourbon Chicken, Beef Lasagna with Cottage Cheese and Crispy Pan-Fried Pork Chop. The impetus for the No Bake Mascarpone Cheesecake was out of sheer laziness. The protein dishes were in search for comfort food and the Shiritaki Fettucine Alfredo was a recipe to slow down on the carbohydrate in take.
The recipes BMH enjoyed last year were Crab Cakes and Remoulade Sauce, Spicy Mayo BLT and Banana Foster Bread. Both the crab cakes and bread were influenced by food travels in New Orleans and we enjoyed almost once every other month a Weeknight Roast Chicken. After perpetually ordering kheer for dessert, it was only time before we tried to attempt it ourselves.
41 Degrees (for the the Iberian ham air baguette)
Flour Bakery (for the sticky buns)
Momofuku Milk Bar (for the salted pistachio soft serve)
Tapacs 24 (for the huevos estrellados)
Island Creek Oyster Bar (for the lobster roll)
Angelo Brocato (for the peach gelato)
Xoco (for the churros and empanadas)
Cheers to 2011, the New Year and may it bring good health, happiness and many pleasant food memories. -The BMH sisters
