My Top 5 Favorite Main Dishes of 2011

Here are my top five main dishes of the year.  Of course my top four are Mexican dishes - my all time favorite and three out of five are from America's Test Kitchen. Enjoy. 

#1 America's Test Kitchen Carnitas
This is one of Jake's favorite recipes that I make.  I make it several times each and every month.  

#2 Taco Pasta
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! This is one of those dishes that even though you are full, you don't want to stop eating it, because it is so yummy! 

#3 Crunchy Shredded Pork Tacos
These tacos taste just like the ones from a famous local restaurant that I grew up eating with my family! 

#4 America's Test Kitchen Tostadas
This recipe has quickly become a favorite.  It is very easy and it tastes amazing.  The last few times I have made it, I have eaten it in regular crunchy taco shells and I think I prefer it that way, because it is a little easier to eat. 

#5 America's Test Kitchen Easier Fried Chicken
This was one of the juiciest chicken dishes I have ever eaten.  


  1. I love cake!

    Seriously. I came to see the cakes and found some yummy dinner ideas instead. That's favorite type of food is Mexican also. And Cake!
    Thanks for stopping by my place!
    I'll be back to see what your cooking up!

  2. Yum, that taco pasta looks amazing, I think I'll have to make it soon! I know my husband will love it
