Our final Best of 2013 post goes to the recipe we thought was our personal best of the year. It had to come entirely from us - not a Secret Recipe Club post, or a French Fridays with Dorie post, or an adapted recipe, but one we came up with ourselves. We had many this year, and most of them we created in the first half of the year. This isn't surprising, as we were away most of the summer and this fall has been pretty crazy busy.
Anyway, we narrowed it down to a few. The Pork and Chipotle Pozole was a warm and hearty dish we really enjoyed back in February. April's Yellow Curry Shrimp was excellent but we didn't make the sauce from scratch, so we didn't think it should take first place. Our Potato, Leek and Celeriac Gratin was decadent indeed, but, alas, not quite as good as our Best Recipe of 2013.
That honor goes to our incredible New Orleans-inspired brunch dish, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bread Pudding. We could devour that daily.
