Has the time been flying by or what! I didn’t even realize that the 1st year anniversary for Upside Down Pear happened. Time has really gotten away from me. As a treat to myself/break from the kitchen, I wanted to share both my three favorite dishes from over the past year and the top three dishes you guys enjoyed. Some of these are from the very beginning of the year, so don’t be dissuaded by the bad pictures!
My top 3:
Whipped Cream is one that I still dream about, it’s just that good. This recipe is crazy light and fluffy and everything you’d want out of a whipped cream. Plus you can put it on just about everything!
Huevos Rancheros has been probably the one breakfast/dinner that I’ve made the most often. It’s really that addicting. There’s something about the eggs and the beans topped with salsa and sour cream to curb any Mexican craving.
Shepherd’s Pie might not be the quickest, but it’s definitely got that comfort food goodness going on. You’ve got amazing mashed potatoes loaded on top of veggies, meat, and gravy. It’s drool worthy.
Your top 3 favorites:
Three Nut Energy Bites are also one of my favorite snacks. They come together quickly and easily, plus it feels like you’re cheating but everything is super good for you. I’ve definitely used these for both breakfast and an afternoon snack.
Upside Down Pear Cake is the very first recipe on this site and it's a favorite for a reason. It’s a buttermilk cake topped with sweet caramelized pear slices. If you haven't tried it yet, you should! It’ll easily become a family favorite in your house as well.
Pineapple Mimosas are a great twist on the classic and fun way to celebrate. We rang in the new year with these, but there’s no reason to stop there!
Going through this list has really brought back some memories for me, and it’s amazing how much we’ve been able to accomplish over the course of one year. Thank you so much for your support, and I hope that you’ve found some new classics as well. I look forward to bringing you many more tasty treats over the next year!
