This is the Countdown to 2017...
For the next few days, I'll be featuring my best, appetizers, breakfasts, desserts, crockpot, and drum roll please, the most popular reader favorite from the past year. This year's Countdown is hosted by Fantastical Sharing, which is a blog by Sarah Ellis, our former leader for the Secret Recipe Club
January 2nd, the First Monday, I've invited a bunch of bloggers from the former Secret Recipe Club to tell you about their favorite recipe for the past month. This will be a monthly feature for the first Monday of the month, every month.
Stay tuned, or stay online or keep checking me out...
First though. HAPPY BOXING DAY- Had to get that out of the way before I could share some, just some, of the awesome Appetizers and Snacks I made this year.
And I'm so glad I'm not limited to just one. Cause I made a few that I want to share.
Here we are with the first entry, from guess where? One of my Secret Recipe Club assignments.
I made this Dill Pickle Dip
some Tomato Tulips
In April I made some Whole Shrimp for Fish Friday Foodies Camarone Entero Mojo (whole Mojo Shrimp)
In May I made some Mojo Spice Wings
June was Shrimp Tempura
and for July's offering I got first prize for my Carrabelle Crab Cakes in a local contest. (I'm still so chuffed over that).
Then came August. And I got an Honorable Mention in a contest for these, Yakisoba Noodle Spring Roll with Shrimp
August was a good month for Appetizers. I also made these Shrimp Burger Bites which were so good. (Did I mention I'm part of a group who posts fish related dishes on the third Friday of the Month. It's called Fish Friday Foodies) This was one of the recipes I came up with this year.
October I made this Curried Carrot Hummus. It was part of a #ImprovCookingChallenge I've made it a couple of times since then. When you make something good, you should repeat it.
Chunky Shrimp and Smoked Salmon Spread. I made it as part of #FishFridayFoodies challenge.
There I said it.
I also made my own Gyoza Wrappers this year.
Salsa Taquera Roja which I learned how to make thanks to the Secret Recipe Club. I'm going to miss that club.
There's lots more to look at.
And Happy Boxing Day to all my friends who also celebrate this day. I'm going to have some Smørrebrød, a glass or two of Aquavit and a beer.
