Best of: Top 10 Recipes of 2007

Continuing with my "Best of" series, I present the

Best of: Top 10 Recipes of 2007

I must say, a lot of these older recipes didn't necessarily have the best photos, but they continue to come up in searches. I've redone a few of the photos this past year such as the Bo Luc Lac (Vietnamese Shaking Beef) and Canh Chua Ca (Vietnamese Sour Fish Soup) because the original versions just didn't do it for me. I was surprised that I get so many hits for my Cha Gio (Vietnamese Egg Rolls) recipe since I figured there were already so many other versions out there. And two non-Vietnamese recipes made it into the top 10 including Chinese Hot and Sour Soup and Aji Verde (Peruvian Green Chili Sauce).

Again, the numbers after the recipe name reflect the number of hits from May 24, 2009 to January 11, 2010.

  1. Hi WC,
    I've been a fan for over half a year now and I enjoy the fact that you have vietnamese recipes on your site as well as some non-asian recipes. I hope you will still continue to blog years from now. Keep up the great work!
