A delicious round up of our favorite new recipes from 2020.
A few days ago, we shared our annual end-of-year post titled, Your Favorite Recipes of 2020. The "Your" referred to you, our readers. We checked our Google Analytics and came up with the recipes that were most popular this year.
We also usually share a post at the end of December featuring "our" favorite recipes of the year. Although we love each and every recipe we share, there are always a handful that really stand up, those recipes we know we'll be making again and again.
A few months back I received an email from a reader regarding a new recipe (our Ridiculously Easy Rosemary Shortbread) I had posted. This is what it said:
Buttery-scrumdillicious! Disappeared in seconds! Every post I have tried that your son has given his accolades to I have been super pleased with. You might consider having a "Nick approved" tab for easy location of the best of the best recipes.
So that's how the title of this post transitioned from "Our Favorite Recipes" to "Nick's Favorite Recipes of 2020". It's true, Nick does have great and very discerning tastebuds. He's a big fan of The Café while, at the same time, being super honest. Truly the best kind of taste-tester you can ask for! Thanks, Nick! 🙌
