Our Top Recipes of 2010

Food & Beverage

It was a great year on the CRAFTZINE blog for foodies as well as those just casually looking for an easy meal, a homemade gift from the kitchen, or a new main to serve to the fam. I’ve collected some of our more popular recipes — those that took off on Facebook, really excited the editors, or made a splash on StumbledUpon. I think it’s an awesome list, and I plan on making all these recipes in the new year.
A few words of warning — going through this list may make you extremely hungry, thirsty, or both. It’s best to sit down with a pad and paper so you can start your shopping list for the ingredients you’ll soon be craving.
Balsamic and Thyme Roasted Portabella Mushrooms — Good for Thanksgiving, good as appetizers, good for vegetarian feasts.

Flavorful Fudge
— Fudge needs no explanation. And we’ve got five variations of no-explanation-needed for you to try.
Grilled Balsamic Basil Flank Steak — This was a popular recipe throughout the summer, and with good reason.
Enchiladas Verdes de Jocoque — Green chile, cheese, and sour cream makes for a delicious sauce.

Linguini with Lemon-Roasted Asparagus and Goat Cheese
— The springtime bounty of asparagus makes this pasta dish really stand out. Plus goat cheese, yummy!
Snickerdoodle Cake — An 8-year-old’s birthday request turns out to be quite a popular (and tasty) recipe.
Sage Rush Cocktail — “A simple cocktail and a darn good one,” as explained by Cooking for Geeks author Jeff Potter.
White Bean Hummus with Spinach — Great for spreading on sandwiches, and/or as a dip with pita chips or fresh cut vegetables.
Brandied Cocktail Cherries — An unbelievably delicious homemade alternative to store-bought maraschino cherries. Perfect as a garnish on Manhattans.
Vegetarian French Onion Soup — A classic soup, now in a yummy vegetarian version. This, it turns out, is something lots of people were wishing for.
Flaky Cheddar and Ham Biscuits — Tender and flaky, plus they’re perfect for making breakfast sandwiches!
Brown Butter Frosting Madelines — Quick and delicious, this recipe uses store-bought cookies and a Martha Stewart glaze that can be whipped up in a jiffy.
