Since my blogging was in fits and spurts in the beginning, there weren't that many posts. And when I did blog, my photos left much to be desired. I was using a Canon SD110 and had yet to care about plating or angles. I've tried to update photos of these recipes when possible. The main thing that stands out is, with the exception of the first two, most of the recipes had very, very few hits. It was a stretch to make a top 10 list, but I did anyway.
Best of: Top 10 Recipes of 2006
Again, the numbers after the recipe name reflect the number of hits from May 24, 2009 to January 11, 2010.
Pho Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup) 3,905
Goi Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Salad) 2,425
Banh Kem Dua (Vietnamese Coconut Flan) 1,316
Baked Chicken with Lemon, Salt, and Pepper 937
Doughnut Bread Pudding 549
Muop Tom Xao (Vietnamese Loofah and Shrimp Stir-fry) 522
Coq au Vin (French Chicken with Wine) 360
Pumpkin Penne 190
Sweet Corn Tomalito 182
Insalata Caprese (Italian Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella Salad) 178 (Actually, this post was combined with my baked goat cheese with pesto recipe, but I've moved that to its own page. So who knows which of the two helped squeeze this recipe into the #10 slot?)
Coincidentally, because of the scant amount of recipes, this list wasn't that different from my original arbitrarily created Best of 2006 list.
If you've been here from the beginning, thanks for continuing to read me! :)
