Our Favorite Things We Made in 2013
If you had to choose one thing (and I mean ONE thing, no cheating), what was your most favorite thing you made in 2013? A hard question, for sure, but it begs to be answered. Was it a delicious, decadent chocolate cake? Or some wildly amazing piece of meat? Some crazy breakfast dish? Here’s what The Kitchn editors have to say on this important matter.
FAITH: Some of my favorite recipes this year were actually created for The Kitchn’s cookbook (coming to your bookshelf October 2014!). There was a Peanut Butter Caramel icebox cake that was probably the best thing I put in my mouth all year, and oven-roasted lamb loin chops with Sara Kate’s chimichurri (a saucy dance party for your mouth). I also loved cooking and sharing Thanksgiving dinner with all of you this year.
EMMA: Bigos Stew!
ANJALI: Garlicky Grilled Kale Salad with Grilled Bread. My husband loves my (pretty healthy, often vegetarian) cooking, but I think in his dream world, I would whip up eggplant parmesan, meatball subs and other cheesy, heavy — and yes, undoubtedly delicious — meals on a regular basis. That’s not going to happen, but I did come up with this smoky, garlicky, savory grilled kale salad that he pronounced “everything I ever wanted in a salad.” And that made us both happy.
