Top 9 of 2009


Happy New Year! Buon 2010 a TUTTI! I must confess that I’m quite excited to have 2009 behind me. I’m so looking forward to what 2010 has to bring. I thought it would be interesting to take one last look back to see which posts from 2009 were the most popular on bell’alimento…

And well here is the TOP 9 for 2009 (nice ring to that eh?) as chosen by you, the ever so fabulous bellalimenters (mwah)… *drum roll please*

  1. Call a Cab Cappuccino
  2. Frozen Nutella Banana Pops dipped in Chocolate
  3. Parmiggiano Panko Herb Encrusted Chicken Breasts
  4. Red Velvet Cupcakes
  5. Grilled Eggplant dripping with a Tomato/Ricotta Salsa
  6. Vanilla Extract
  7. Zuppa di Funghi {Mushroom Soup}
  8. Nutella Gelato
  9. Napa Valley Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

That’s quite a nice list! You know ALL of my recipes are like my children (& wow I think I’m up to 160 now, geez I’m going to need a much bigger house LOL well, a bigger kitchen at the very least would be nice) so it’s a little hard for me to have favorites, but let’s face it I DO!

I’m a little surprised that most of them *boo hoo* didn’t make the list. With that said, I am NOT surprised that 2 of the top 9 were NUTELLA related recipes. As, well, Nutella, is THAT fabulous, and yes, you will be seeing many many more Nutella recipes on bell’alimento. Because, well that’s just the way I roll & plus I got a fab 750g  HUMONGOUS jar of Nutella for Christmas that I can’t wait to dive into & be inspired by!

I am especially honored you chose Red Velvet Cupcakes as one of the top posts. That one, as you know, is UBER SPECIAL to me, because it’s my Grandma’s recipe and will forever be, to me, THE BEST RED VELVET recipe evah!

But no PASTA? Really, I mean not a single pasta dish was in there! You all know the Spaghetti alla Carbonara is my ALL TIME FAVORITE pasta dish.. and what about a RISOTTO dish? A GNOCCHI dish? *sigh* Luckily I still love you all & I guess I’m just going to have to keep sharing them with you until I brainwash you… tee hee…

To that end, here are some of the Staff (yes we have staff here at bell’alimento…no snickering tee hee) favorites from this past year that you might have missed…

Baci e’ Buon Anno Nuovo!
