2010 Redux: Eater's Digest
4. Maple Bacon Cupcakes - The reaction you get from people when they see bacon on top of a cupcake will go one of two ways --- complete disgust or an overjoyed smile. There is never, ever anything in between.
3. Garlic Knots - Bread is an addiction for some. Toss is in butter and garlic and it's heavenly. These garlic knots inspired me to drive straight Whole Foods and pick a round of pre-made pizza dough and make my own because who really has time to wait around for dough to rise?
2. Jalapeno Poppers - These have been a huge hit with every single person that has had the opportunity to try these spicy appetizers. It's really a no brain-er, bacon wrap anything and it's going to be a hit.
1. Corn Soup with Butter Poached Lobster - What do you do with a harvest of backyard sweet corn? You make soup that take almost as long to make as it took to grow the corn. The 3 long hours it took to make this was well worth it and we are definiatly looking forward to 2011 harvest to make it again.
