1. MY MOST BEAUTIFUL POST
I chose my Baklava...I make this every Easter! It is a tradition for our family and is so impressive. I make mine with a sugar syrup not honey. This is a more traditional middle eastern version.

3. MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST
COLD CANTALOUPE SOUP
This cold soup that I made for FFWD garnered a lot of chatter among the French Friday group. So many different opinions...some in favor...some not...some thinking this was just awful and others loving it! I loved it!
4. MOST HELPFUL POST
MY MOMS KA'AK--LEBANESE SWEET ANISE BREAD
My most helpful post, at least to my daughter and niece who had wanted to make their grandmothers Ka'ak for some time. I always thought that we would all get together to make these but, we live so far from each other. So this was the next best thing! This is a really delicious sweet bread. My daughter has actually made these several times now and her kids call them grandma's ka'ak...meaning me! It's moved down a generation!
5. POST THAT WAS SURPRISINGLY SUCCESSFUL
PEPPER NUT BISCOTTI
When I posted this, I again shared the link on FB and was surprised at how many people contacted me and visited my blog to check it out. These are a wonderfully flavorful cookie! Crisp with a bite...so yummy!
6. POST THAT DID NOT GET THE ATTENTION THAT IT DESERVED
This post was something that I thought was really beautiful and delicious! A great way to welcome in the Lenten season and celebrate Mardi Gras. Yet not too many people seemed to be interested. I still love it! I make this bread every year and it is a family favorite! If you ever want to celebrate Mardi Gras...this is a great way!
7. POST YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF
THE DELECTABLE CANÉLE
A lovely little french cake. They are made in canéle moulds and, are quite time consuming. They definitely are worth the time. Canéles are light and almost custardy on the inside and a bit crispy on the inside. This was a true challenge for me and it had a wonderful outcome!
