2012 recipes in review: the best and the overlooked

Some of the most popular recipes of 2012
I've never done a year-end recap post before, so if you're already tired of them (best movies, best books, etc.), tough nooggies.

As an added bonus, I decided to include not only the posts that you, with your page views, deemed the best (or at least most popular) posts of 2012 but also the ones that I think you overlooked.

Frankly, cooking these recipes and writing these posts is a bit like being a parent: you insist you love each one equally but, really, in the deep honesty of your heart, you have favorites.

So here they are. Did you make any of these recipes yourself this year? Or are you inspired to try one now? If so, which one?

The Ninj wants to know.

Happy New Year, peeps: 2013 is going to rock. Well, once we get through Detox January...
