It’s the last weekday of 2011 (ahhhh!) and so I have compiled for you my top 10 personal favorite weelicious recipes from this year (ok, so I included 16 recipes, but who’s counting?). My simple criterion was_ what was most popular with my own family. Some of these recipes, like the Grilled Cheese Pickle Panini and Chocolate Chip Granola Bars for school lunch, I made so many times this year that I lost count. I hope that this list inspires you to get in the kitchen in the New Year to make simple recipes that both you and your family will love!

  2. I love all the recipes that we have tried from weelicious- you truly have a talent for creating healthy, fun, delicious food. Our family’s favorite is the broccoli carrot orzo- I use cheddar because my boyfriend doesn’t like parm (weirdo, I know!) and it is SOOO good. Even our 15 month old shovels it down, and she is in a no-veggies phase. Can’t wait to try the granola bars, vanilla wafers, and pumpkin donuts! I really feel like I need a crockpot now after reading all these good crockpot recipes! Thanks again.

  3. Wow, all the recipes looks so amazing! I’m amazed by your imagination and thank you for sharing it with the world. These are such neat ideas!! I have a very picky 21month old son and this is motivating me to try your recipes. I just made your granola bars, they are cooling. It smells so good in the house, I can’t wait to try it. Thank you again for posting all this amazing recipes!

  4. Loved them I made them a little did rent by chancing with the icing because I thought it was a little sweet a putt some of the filling in the icing it was great!!! Me and my grandpa made some that we’re round

  5. Chicken in a crockpot, Oatmeal in the crockpot, and Wee-somethingorother dip (the Greek yogurt and Spike seasoning one)….couldn’t have gotten through 2011 without them!

  11. Happy New Year Catherine! Thank you for sharing all of your many wonderful recipes for my family to enjoy! You are a life saver! Looking forward to next year ๐Ÿ™‚

    All the way from Calgary, Alberta Canada,

  12. I have to tell you also my favorite recipe this year. Your Summer Fruit Gazpacho. It was out of this world good. My son loved it but I think I loved it more ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. I joined your blog this year, as a new mom I just want to tell you what a fantastic resource you provide. It’s difficult to find healthy AND kid-friendly AND working-mom-friendly (I can go on but you probably get the jist of it) recipe ideas… you provide just that! Thank you! Looking forward to continuing my motherhood journey and feeding it with your recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Thank you for providing another year of wonderful recipes! I look forward to all you share this next year. Here are my favorite 2011 weelicious recipes: Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, Apricot Millet Muffins, Red Beet Pancakes, Roast Carrot Coins, Carrot Apple Coconut Muffins, Baby Lamb Chops with Yogurt Mint Sauce (sans mint), Maple Soy Salmon, Mini Sweet Potato Muffins, Pistachio Pesto, and Braised Moroccan Chicken (even though I think this is an older recipe, you gave it a second mention this year and it deserves it. I make it in the crockpot or my le creuset every week using chicken thighs/legs and minus the tomato and chickpeas). Happy New Year!

  15. i made 4 out of the 10 recipes. the heart tarts were delicious and the mexican lasagna was a big hit.

  16. Yum! We loved the strawberry/cream elves, super easy and tasty. Thank you for such easy and fun ideas!
