We came up with the idea of nominating our recipes for "Best" awards. Dorky? Maybe. Fun? Definitely.
Here are our nominees for "Best" awards from Le Man and Wife, year one:
This blog began with a recipe that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Cherry Brown Butter Bars: The "First" Award.
Then came Green Bean Salad with Figs and Iberico Ham for Thanksgiving 2010: "Best Recipe for Impressing a Crowd".
The "Fewest Ingredients" Award: The Best Ever Tomato Sauce.
"Best Idea We've Ever Had": Egg Rolls.
Red Bean Curry: "Most Repeated Dinner".
"Favorite Pasta Recipe": Toss-up between Kale Pesto Pasta and Linguini with Tomato-Almond Pesto.
"Best Thai Recipe": Thai Green Curry.
Shaved Asparagus Salad: "Healthiest (and Prettiest) Salad".
"Best Sandwich": South Carolina Pulled Pork.
"Best Taco": Spicy Beef Brisket Tacos. (Secret: we've never posted these. Should we?)
"Best Pancakes": Perfect Pancakes.
"Best Granola": Homemade Granola. Updated version coming soon!
"Most Rewarding Recipe": Rainbow Cake.
I can't wait to see what next year will bring (*coughmorecoffeepostscough*)!
