2011 Reflection: Readers vs BMH, Recipes and Restaurants

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 CheesecakeShiritaki Fettucine Alfredo and proteins Chinese Bourbon ChickenBeef 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.
