such a great idea, love this post! so many things to blog about and so little time to actually blog it is fun to look back and see what didn't make the cut :)

CaliforniaKat said...

Yes, I agree with SassyAgapi. I'm down for the Feta and Eggplant Salad and Mexican Caprese. Also interested in the Apple Tart with Masticha. C'mon, you're just teasing us now. ;)

Eva said...

Happy New Year Anna! Did they not make the blog because of flavour failure? Just curious!

elly said...

Well hurry up and get these on here! Start with the harissa hummus and move onto the beer bread and blood orange soba noodles, ok? :) Happy New Year, Anna!

Mary Bergfeld said...

All of these look wonderful. Please share the recipes with us as soon as you can. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that 2012 brings only good things your way. Hugs and blessings...Mary

Banana Wonder said...

Let Me Eat Cake - I am dying to know what muffins didn't make your cut?

CaliforniaKat - Hah, those saladas were almost too easy to make to blog, but I think I will make them better and blog this year :P For the apple tart: I put mastiha powder into whipped cream and used 2 pre-made pie crust to make a long tart.

Eva - I still need to perfect the soba noodles... last time I put way too much sauce on.

elly - I am working on it!

Mary - Thanks and happy new year.

CaliforniaKat said...

Pre-made pie crust!!! (Gasp) ;)
