So I wanted to give you a summary of the best dishes we've made this year.  However, when I picked out the list of my favorites, we had over 30 recipes.  We've made a lot of really delicious food this year and the majority of the recipes will go into the book.  But it would be pointless to give you a list of 90% of the things we've made, so I forced myself (and B.) to come up with the best of the best.

You'll probably be able to tell which ones were at the very top of his list and which ones were at the top of mine. I think we can agree that this list is not comprehensive and that we both (at the very least) liked what each other chose.  I realize that some family and friends may call me out for a lot of these, since there are some recipes we've made for YEARS (ahem, tuna London broil since we met three years ago...)
