52 Recipes for 2011 :: update

Super cute! Found on Pinterest.

Weeks into 2011: 31 weeks, 1 day
New Recipes Tried: 46 (6 until I hit my goal!)

46. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos: Another Pinterest find! I left out the poblano pepper and cumin. Instead, I added corn and seasoned the sweet potatoes with salt, pepper and paprika. These were good! I put sour cream and cheese on mine, but I think the cheese overpowered the sweet potatoes. I’d definitely make these again. Thanks, Pinterest!
45. Vanilla Cupcakes: I saw this recipe over on Glorious Treats and knew I had to give it a go. It was very simple (and I even used her milk/lemon juice trick instead of the buttermilk). I iced them with her vanilla cream cheese frosting, but I thought it kind of overpowered the vanilla cupcake. I think when I make these again, I’ll try my favorite vanilla buttercream instead. Even still…it’s a cupcake…how can you go wrong?
44. Chocolate Chip Scones: I got this recipe out of a cookbook I have. They were decent. I think I could probably find a better recipe though. I’ll keep looking. 🙂
43. Oreo and Peanut Butter Layered Baby Lattice Pies: Now, don’t get me wrong…I am a HUGE fan of Picky Palate. I mean HUGE. Love her blog and her recipes. But, this one left me with a little to be desired. They were the cutest things you’ve ever seen, and on that fact alone I would probably make them again for a party or something. But, they seemed a little dry to me. I’m not sure why I would have expected them to be softer or more moist.
