Best of 2011

I believe I'm a little late in posting what I think are the best recipes I've posted in 2011.  I've seen a lot of my fellow bloggers posting about what they think is the best.  I've been meaning to get to it but it's been a rough week...both boys have been sick and I've been sick.  Now everyone is starting to get better so I have some time to think about what I think are the best recipes on Chocolate & Chillies in 2011.  This has been my first year blogging.  I started out looking for a hobby, a way to document my recipes and help to improve my cooking.  Over the year I have discovered so many amazing bloggers and found some great recipes.  In the beginning there were really only 2 sister in law, Reshma and my cousin, Naseeba.   They were my loyal followers from the beginning...Thank you!  I am now amazed at how many comments and readers I have.  Thank you so much for visiting and for all the comments.

To decide which recipes I thought were the best I thought of the recipes I now make over and over again and that everyone enjoys.  They are in no particular order.

Now the best recipes for 2011 on Chocolate & Chillies:

Honey Yeast Rolls

Black Bean Burgers

Lettuce Wraps

Middle Eastern Kebobs with Toum

Pasta with Fresh Herbs

Low Fat Fudge Brownies

Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Cake


  1. Thanks for the shout out....I'm still your #1 loyal follower, right?? I definitely agree that the recipe for the honey yeast rolls was one of the best. Although I haven't attempted to actually make them, I definitely enjoyed eating them!! Happy New Year :)

  2. Yup you & Nasham are still my #1 followers! :) You should try the black bean burgers with the sauce...they are so good...both boys love them. They are really easy to make and make enough for 2 days. Just the chopping takes the most time.

  3. Lol yeah I will try making the burgers one day even though Burket will think I've lost my mind when I try to serve them to know his carnivorous tendencies ;) I also really enjoyed the mushroom orzo risotto recipe...sad to see that it didn't make the cut!

  4. really the best 1s......superb...........The kebab and bluberry cake z really awesome

  5. Great round-up of recipes, Asiya! I'm looking forward to all the recipes 2012 will bring.

    Happy New Year!
