So this year we are both picking our "Top 6 of 2016" instead. These are our top picks, in no particular order, starting with me.
I have to kick off my picks with these cookies because not only were they super tasty, they were how we told our family that we were expecting a boy and a girl!
This meal is so many wonderful things all wrapped up in one warm and cozy autumn meal. Apple, turkey, cider gravy, vegetables, and light fluffy biscuits specked with sharp cheddar. Yum! You can bet this dish will appear on our table every fall at least once.
I love apples. I love fall. I love sour cream. I love pie. So, yeah, that pretty much covers it! This pie is apple about the apple flavor and totally worth giving a try when apple season rolls around again.
This was a recipe I made as part of the Secret Recipe Club. It's one that I've wanted to try for a long time and it was fantastic! I will be making this again - probably when the babies are older and eating with us because it makes a bunch.
These cookies are a life-long favorite of mine and the recipe comes from my great-grandmother. Of course these need to make the list. They are one of my favorite cookies ever and are a necessary cookie for our holiday celebrations.
Stuffed banana peppers are a staple in the Buffalo region. They are on every pub/bar and pizzeria menu in the area. We even take the flavors and make pizza and mac n' cheese with the flavors. So, I decided to take the flavors and make a thick and hearty soup.
Now it's time for my husband's picks. He agreed with me on the (Un)stuffed banana pepper soup, the Thumbprint cookies, and the Chicken fried chicken. His picks that differed from mine are:
I was honestly surprised he picked this one! He's usually more of a pie person. I made this cake as part of the Secret Recipe Club and we both enjoyed it a lot.
We've eaten this several times now and it's always delicious! This is a great meal to make now that the holiday rush is over.
I hope you all had a wonderful year and wish you all the best in 2017!!
