2012 Superlatives

Well, another year has come and (nearly) gone.  Can you believe it?!

I’ve never been huge on New Years as a holiday, but I do believe it’s important to reflect a bit on the past year before welcoming a new year.  I’m not just speaking from a personal/life perspective, but also on the fun stuff, like… recipes. 🙂

If you’ve been an LBBakes reader for awhile, you might remember that last year, I handed out fancy superlative awards to my 2011 recipe collection here on the blog.  I’ve decided to keep that tradition going for 2012 (mainly because my baking buddy Sally reminded me with hers!), and have a fresh new batch of fun awards to share!

Best Dressed: Apple Half Moon Cookies (with not one but two frostings!)

Now, to all my other recipes, we should all are winners. 😉 But the preceding were some that I felt were particularly deserving of recognition. 🙂

What do you think?  Any recipe favorites from 2012, here at LBBakes or on other websites, finds on Pinterest, etc.?

    1. Mmm, yes, the sugar cookie dip is a good one!! I’m glad you enjoyed it over Christmas. Nilla wafers are my favorite! Also, thanks — I’m still working a bit on tweaking things here at the blog, but I figured it was time for a change. 🙂

  1. Glad you did a superlatives list exactly like I did! So many wonderful linkbacks today Liz! Those doritos brownies ALWAYS catch my eye!! And I am cracking up – “Most Energetic: Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies” haha!! So true! They are so fun and bright and cheery. 🙂

    1. I had completely forgotten than I had done a superlatives in 2011, and then saw yours and was reminded. We’re just too similar. 🙂 And yes, those doritos brownies have turned lots of heads, ha! I’m sure I’ll have a few more wacky combos in 2013. Happy New Year, Sally!

    1. Adding the brownies to this year-end recap totally made me want to make them again… the strangest combo, but so good if you can handle it… and I know you could handle it! 😉 Happy new year!
