My top 8 recipes of 2010

My thoughts have not been on food lately but have been more about my kitchen and staying out of it. Since holiday break began, my thoughts have wandered towards more important things. Things like John Cusack.

Confession # 838: I spent my last LOL (Lady of Leisure) day doing a John Cusack movie marathon. There. I said it. The morning started with classics such as "Better Off Dead", "Say Anything" and "The Sure Thing". The afternoon featured "Grosse Pointe Blank" with "High Fidelity" as the finale.

Did I OD on JC? Impossible.

His last movie actually inspired me. High Fidelity is a story about a Rob (John Cusack) the music-addicted, obsessively list-making owner of a record store called Championship Vinyl. The breakup of Rob and his girlfriend sets him to recalling his previous relationships with women, specifically those on a list of his Top 5 Worst Breakups.

I decided to make a list of my own. So #5 on my Worst Breakup of all time list was...

Joking! That list would not have been pretty :)

Alrighty...my top 8 (because I couldn't decide on just 5) recipes for 2010 (in alphabetical order):

Because these suckers are as delicious as they are hard to pronounce. I love filling these with raspberry jam but you can fill with fresh fruit, cream cheese or Nutella.

  5. hey there
    I love your favorites & website well done. I French and we don't say "Le petit brioche" but "La petite brioche" in FRENCH because brioche it's a female name that's all.
    good luck & keep going
