Best of 2011

In the nearly four years since I started The Parsley Thief I have yet to do a year end "Best of..." post.  This year feels like the right time to start the tradition.  The past two years have been difficult for our family for many reasons.  There has been loss and change.  The kind of change that's been hard to adjust to.
Yet, in 2011, I feel like I have grown as a person more than I can ever remember growing in one year's time.  Maybe it's all the change that's taken place, or a tragedy bringing a perspective into my daily life that's real and tangible...or maybe it's a combination of things and the fact that I'm getting older {and hopefully, wiser}.
I'm looking forward to 2012 as there's lots on the horizon in my life and here on my blog - hopefully changes you'll like!  I'm really excited to share it with you when it happens.  I also wanted to say thank you to everyone out there who reads The Parsley Thief - you make it all worthwhile for me.  So, as the year comes to a close, I share with you the Top 10 most popular recipes of 2011...
10 | mango sorbet 9 | spinach & strawberry salad with poppy seed dressing 8 | short rib ragù 7 | brown butter brownies 6 | breakfast quinoa with berries & bananas 5 | pomodoro fresco pasta salad 4 | thai chicken & noodles 3 | cheddar guinness dip 2 | vanilla bean cupcakes with salted caramel frosting 1 | peanut butter pie {a pie for mikey}
Excuse the super cheeseball twinkles, but I couldn't resist it on NYE!  Happy New Year to All! xoxo - Katie
