Yer Favourites

I’ll give someone a digital high five if you can tell me, without Googling it, where that title comes from. Not only is it from one of my favorite bands, but the it reminded me that I actually made it to my 100th post. Now I could say something like “you know anyone can make it to 100 but it takes true intestinal fortitude to get to 103.” Yeah right, it actually just slipped my mind that I made it to this not very important milestone, however it is one that I would like to celebrate anyway!

Seriously though lambs, to all one to two of you who do happen to read my cooking “memoirs” I have just loved updating this blog with my memories, thoughts and cooking tales these past 100ish posts and I’m raising a glass to you for what I hope will be 100ish more.

For this special occasion I wanted to look back over Cooking Inside the Lines and do a best of/worst of just for fun. If you want to listen to Barbara Streisand’s The Way We Were while reading please be my guest.

My top 10 favorites recipes tested so far and in no particular order
  1. Strawberry, Pistachio and Goat Cheese Pizza
  2. Milk-Braised Pork Shoulder
  3. Open-Face Pork Tacos
  4. Doughnut Holes with Raspberry Jam
  5. Open-Face Crab Burgers
  6. Cod with Mussels, Chorizo, Fried Croutons and Saffron Mayonnaise
  7. Asparagus Salad with Soft Poached Eggs
  8. Grilled Pork with Blackberry Sage Sauce
  9. Coffee Rubbed Cheeseburgers with Texas BBQ Sauce
  10. Cheddar BLT Burger with Tarragon Dressing
The recipe that I thought was going to be delicious but um, just wasn’t

Recipe that looked delicious but didn’t think it was going to knock my socks off the way it did
Dumbest Post By Yours Truly
Winner: All of Cooking Inside the Lines :) Kidding kind of, but I think this one might be one of the dumbest.
Month with the most posts and why
September. I’ll admit it, I learned to clone myself. That or I went through that cleansing process and posted my thoughts for seven straight days. Let’s go with cloning, I like that reason better.
Month with the least posts (besides November since I’m just getting started) and why
February. Well it was my blog’s birth month so I’ve got to stretch my legs a little bit right?
My Favorite Post
I would love to hear from the two of you any favorites (or stupid moments) that might have inspired you.

  1. 100 posts! Congrats!!!

    Okay, seeing your list of favorites made me remember that I totally need to try some of these things still, like the milk-braised pork and the cod with mussels and whatnot.

    Also, holy crap, I didn't know you made the Cheddar BLT Burger with Tarragon Dressing. We made that one a loong time ago and the dressing was AMAZING. We used it in place of mayo for like two weeks after that and it kept just fine. Think I'll make that one again soon.

    Glad to see that you're back from your blogging hiatus! Unfortunately I'm suffering from laziness right now, which is why I've barely updated ours lately…

  2. Congrats mama! I can't believe you've already made it to 100. I've seriously loved reading your blog, with all your sassy comments and honest feedback. It's very helpful for us magazine readers who need a second opinion before taking the time to prepare dishes. So, THANKS!

  3. Congratulations on this milestone! I love your writing voice and personally I thought the worst of Cooking Inside the Lines was one of the best. Talking to yourself on a blog is just so meta…and classic!

  4. I am SO glad Cooking Light's Asparagus Salad with Soft Poached Eggs recipe made your list of favorites. I flagged it recently for next but havent made it yet. Now that it's worthy to be a fave on your blog, I will make it this weekend!
