As I am sitting here sipping a warm mug of peppermint mocha (homemade, of course) and browsing through each month’s recipes, I can’t help but to smile at all of the yummy things I cooked, ate and drank over the past year from entrees to appetizers, desserts to drinks, and everything in between. Before I kick off another year of delicious recipes, I’m going to recap some of my favorites from 2011. Trends that I am noticing throughout my archives include seasonal recipes, signature cocktails, alcohol infusions, balanced bites and Mexican influences. Below you’ll find 14 of my favorite Kitchen Konfidence recipes from last year.
What can you expect to see on Kitchen Konfidence in 2012? I will continue to explore both seasonal and Mexican recipes. In addition to alcohol infusions, I will also be diving into the world of shrubs, bitters and tinctures (that means MOAR cocktails). And desserts, as always, will be very prominent. Joining the recipe articles each week will be some new content types including reviews, giveaways, technique videos and roundups. What would you like to see me post into 2012? Please share your thoughts below. Now… on to the picks.
