My Favorite Recipes: April 2012

I don’t know if this whole idea of picking our five favorite recipes from each month is such a good one.  I mean, this list might leave you with the impression that there aren’t others that we cooked again and again and will be keeping in the rotation.  Like that (vegan) Farro Bowl with Toasted Kale and Coconut and Curry-Roasted Tofu.  Like the amazing (also vegan) Thai Greens and Tofu, which I left off simply because for most people it would require a trip to a well-stocked Asian grocery store.  The Smoked Salmon Salade Nicoise?  My standby Simple Lentil Soup?  All my favorites.  You see the problem.  It’s a good problem to have.

How to Make Homemade Organic Vegetable Broth for Free
Broccoli Salad with Ravioli, Feta, and Lemony Harissa Dressing
Queso Fundido with Mushrooms, Greens, and Chiles
Kale Salad with Apples, Currants, and Gorgonzola
Rhubarb Cake with Crystallized Ginger Crumb
And last but not least, the readers’ favorite: Homemade Matzo with Olive Oil (but I’ll just be calling them “Spiced Flatbreads” until Passover rolls around again)

    I think you must have posted some of those recipes before I started following (stalking). Drooling. Must go back through the archives.

      So glad to hear you’re inspired to revisit some of the recipes–I’m doing that as well! The hardest thing for me about cooking enough new things to find GOOD recipes to post every day is that then I don’t have enough meals leftover to eat my favorites every day for weeks on end like I like to. Although mixing it up was my goal, so I guess I’m succeeding on that front! :)

      I started doing it because I thought we’d like to remember which recipes were our favorites (instead of combing through the whole site to decide what to cook–I seriously need an index). But, like I said, I think I’m leaving too many things we love out of this favorites list! So we’ll have to revisit the whole list regularly after all.
