The Best of 2008

Although I am a couple of days behind, I wanted to do a “year in review” of the food I featured on my blog over the past year, similar to what I did for 2007. I took a lot of new leaps in the kitchen during 2008, tried many new things and conquered a number of culinary fears so it was certainly a successful year! While I enjoyed everything that I blogged, of course I have my favorites so below is a review of my “Favorites of 2008″. Hope you enjoy and Happy New Year! :)
