Roundup of recipes from 2020

 I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and all possible best in 2021.  

What a year, huh?  2020 is definitely going down in the history books. 

Not a great year for so many, but for the most part most of us managed.  

 I can't say it was my greatest year ever, but I had some great moments.

Roundup of Recipes from 2020

I had fun cooking at a local restaurant.  Hard, hard work, but so enjoyable.   My body however, decided that at my age, it was better off not working that hard, and gave me a swift boot in the butt in the form of a bad attack of sciatica.  I've never had such pain, nor do I want to ever experience that again.   So I had to hang up my apron there. 

I still did some cooking, experimenting in the kitchen.   Being on a virtual lockdown does sometimes have its benefits although I did cook so much food that was tried and true, can make it with my eyes closed and the brain on pause.  I need new recipes. 

I took a look at my blog today and found out that one of the most viewed recipes on here was my homemade Créme Fräiche.  I've made it so many times so far this year. In fact I made some just the other day.  I've dolloped it on potatoes, taco's, nacho's and even swirled it into soups, added it to recipes, and eaten it by the spoonful, naked.  The Créme Fräiche was naked, BTW,  not me.

February must have been a good month, cause I also cracked the code on Bacon Jam.   It was so good, I've made it for myself a couple times so far this year.  I did share some early on this year when we were still able to gather together and shared it then.

There were a couple more standouts this year, at least according to the stats.  

I made some Banana Oatmeal muffins back in June, which were pretty tasty, even if I do say so myself.

And my Toaster Oven Cornbread was also a hit.  I started with a mix and added my own homemade Créme Fräiche in it.

I've actually made a few versions of that cornbread this year.   I do live in the south, after all.  And cornbread is a must make and serve alongside many meals.

 These were perfect to make, especially when it was hot outside, and I still wanted a good tasty dinner roll.   My little toaster oven came through for these Toaster Oven No Knead Rolls.

My little toaster oven has gotten a bit of a workout this year, and will probably continue to be used, a lot.
