Top 10 Recipes of 2010 Last year I did a round up of the 10 most visited posts of 2009 on this blog. I was surprised to see that this year several posts from last year are still in the top 10! I just wanted to say thanks to all of you that read Amanda’s Cookin’, those of you that share my posts with your friends and family, and those that make my recipes and come back to tell me. Your feedback is invaluable to me, not to mention a fun ego boost. Hee hee. :) But seriously, I love working on this blog, being in the kitchen, and sharing my recipes with you.

Crockpot Mongolian Beef My family loves Asian-inspired food. We don’t have many takeout places close to where we live, so when I find an easy recipe (especially when it is made in the crock pot), I jump on it. I knew this recipe would be a hit even before I made it. It doesn’t require any cooking on preparation day, just throw a few ingredients in a bag, and that’s it! It smells sooooo good while it’s cooking, and looks like you spent all day slaving over the stove! By the time the steak was finished cooking, it was fall-apart tender.

Apple Cake with Lemon Icing! First, apple muffin tops. Then, mini apple pies. Now, deliciously moist apple cake with lemon icing. You could make the assumption I’ve gained a good 57, 58 pounds from what I’ve been eating. Mixed Berry & Cherry Clafoutis I love cherry season. I have such great memories as a kid going cherry picking. My brother and I would sit in the trees and just eat until we couldn’t possibly be any stickier.

60 Second Chocolate Chip Cookie A la Mode I had so much fun developing this recipe. Talk about kinda dangerous though. This baby is baked in 60 seconds, no lie!! Celebrate Strawberry Season Turns out it's possible to improve upon classic tiramisu -- just add strawberries! 3 Reclips 0 Likes Once I tried to make strawberry jam and burned it. This time I'm going to be more diligent, because it was otherwise really easy.

Apple Pie Bars Any day is a good day for apple pie, right? To me apple pie isn’t just a Fall and Thanksgiving dessert, I want apple pie all through out the year. Why have such a good thing only once a year? Magic Custard Cake Recipe Update! A Chocolate version of this magic custard cake. Get the Chocolate Magic Custard Cake Recipe Here When I saw a magic custard cake recipe on Pinterest two weeks ago, I was floored. I mean, it left me in a state of delicious shock that something so simple could create an incredible piece of dessert. It looked so easy and like magic, it separated into three layers: a cake layer on top, a custard layer in the middle and another dense cake layer on the bottom.

50 Cookie Exchange Recipes I don’t know if you saw all the yummy cookies last week on my blog for my Cookie Exchange Week, but we had some DELICIOUS recipes shared by some of you favorite bloggers. Cookie exchanges are one of my favorite parts about the holidays. Maybe its because I am a food blogger, maybe its because I love to eat, maybe its the spirit of giving… or maybe its all the above. Whatever it is, there is something so special and fun about cookie exchanges. Dozen Flours: 30 Calorie Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies Please allow me to present the thirty calorie cookie... you know you want one, don't you? Go ahead, indulge! The best part of this cookie aside from the fact that they taste heavenly, is that you don't have to feel guilty eating them. Say goodbye to the hard, styrofoamy meringue cookies that scrape the roof of your mouth when you eat them.
