2011 was a pretty exciting year for us here at Just Putzing Around the Kitchen. Dan and I finally furnished our new condo, got a second cat, settled into our first post-school grown up jobs, and went on our first international vacation together. Then my year-long clerkship ended, and I found myself bored and unemployed for a few months…that, of course, led to an explosion of cooking and blogging. Now, Dan and I are engaged, I’ve just landed the perfect job, and the cats are fat and happy. All in all a pretty good year. And, what better way to toast the end of a great year than to look back at some of the tastiest treats that came out of it? Here are some of our favorite dishes from 2011..
Banana Cake with Brown Butter Maple Frosting
Banana Whoopie Pies with Nutella Buttercream Filling
Dulce de Leche Nutella-Swirl Loaf Cake
Kahlua Cake Trifles
Sabayon with Fresh Berries
Happy New Year, everyone!
