Best of 2010!

How could I have left this until February!? Once again time passes too quickly, and what a year 2010 was! Where do I begin? For those of you keeping up with my blog and whereabouts you'll know that 2010 was a year of moving country. My passion for cooking grew and my food blogging began all during my amazing years living in London UK. London is a vibrant and non-stop eventful city, which is probably why I began cooking so much more there; cooking is a stress reliever for me.
Eventually there weren't enough hours in the day and I began to miss the calming nature and more relaxed pace of life found in my home of Vancouver Canada.
The tough decision was made, the immigration for Marek was approved, and the packing began!
Combining the fast paced life of London and everything involved with moving I didn't give myself enough time to put as many posts up as I would have liked. So I'll only mention a few, although I'd love to say all recipes of 2010 are the best, haha!

Porky Pasta
This was a dish completely made up on the fly. Loved it! I haven't made it since and I'm really wondering why? Hhhhhmmm....dinner for tonight, solved

Bolognese sauce, Perfecto!
I'm not conceited, but this is probably the best bolognese sauce I've ever had. No joke!
Classic Bechamel sauce 
This is a never fail recipe. Like I say in the post, it's easy to remember. Take a look and you'll see
Traditional Lasagne
Using both my most successful sauces of 2010, I created also my best ever lasagne

Rolled Pork Loin with Apple and Caramalized Onion Stuffing
I am very proud of this one. It not only looks beautiful but tasted gorgeous. The crackling is always a favourite at the dinner table

I'm in love Mac n' Cheese
This is still my best ever Macaroni and Cheese dish. The smoked cheese adds the most amazing touch!

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes & Devil's Food Cupcakes
I was making cupcakes for Marek's 30th birthday. I couldn't decide between 2 types so I made both! I'm more of a vanilla girl than a chocolate girl but they were both amazing!

Chicken Goujons
These were a very popular part of our Hors D'oeures Party. They are so easy and delicious

Vianocka (Slovak Christmas Sweet Bread)
 Just looking at this braided bread makes me proud :)

So that's my trip down memory lane for 2010.
