It’s almost the end of the year. As far as the blog goes, it was a year of learning for me. Learning what my readers enjoy reading and what I enjoy writing about. There was a lot of learning about the mechanics of a blog also. I did a lot of cooking and posting on Never Enough Thyme in 2010, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you today. I know I said I was taking a break until January, and I am. I’ll be back with new recipes next week! In the meantime, enjoy this review of the Best of 2010.
A Southern favorite – Fried Catfish and Cheese Grits / Georgia BLT – fried green tomatoes and bacon! / Southern Sweet Tea – house wine of the South / How to Set the Table - I worried that readers would be put off by this post, but it received more comments than any post I’ve ever written / Huevos and Grits, Y’all – a combination of classic southern cheese grits and southwestern huevos rancheros that is delicious! / NeeNa’s Company Chicken – a delicious combination of chicken breast and country ham
Chicken Jallop – a recipe unique to south Georgia but which more people should enjoy! / Cheese Pinwheels with Mayhaw Jelly – a recipe from my hometown using one of our local products, Mayhaw Jelly / Pickled Okra – another Southern delicacy / Smothered Barbecued Chicken – the best of both worlds, fried chicken smothered in barbecue sauce / Caramel Layer Cake – a yellow cake layer frosted with creamy caramel frosting
Of course, there were many more posts in 2010 but these are some of my favorites and I hope you enjoyed them as well. I’m looking forward to sharing more of my traditional Southern cooking, along with a few surprises, in 2011. A happy and prosperous New Year to all of you!
