Top 24 recipes of 2011

And this year is gone and it is almost my blogversary too! Many (but not too many) are the recipes I have proposed you across the past 12 months and it was very hard to choose some that have stuck in my flavors library.

After skimming my picture catalog I have reduced them to a Top 24. With one new recipe every two weeks may this list help you bringing a little more happiness into your 2012.

  3. Nice to meet you via Twitter! Happy blogiversary. I have to say that your pictures are just superb, I'm trying my best working on styling. I wish I could dedicate more time into photography, but I spend a lot of time working in the lab playing with liquid helium.

    Btw, do you have a blog post of your photography studio?

    Best wishes for 2012!
