Top 9 Recipes of 2013

My much anticipated year end countdown, the Top 9 Recipes of 2013, is here! This is the most difficult blogpost to write as all the recipes are taste-tested and have to meet the high standards of this Cheap$kate Culinarian.

I like to keep it real when choosing recipes, real cheap that is. If you are a frequent visitor, then you know the drill, but for the newbies, I cook with ingredients that cost around 99 cents each. Everything from a huge eggplant for 99.99 cents, to an 8 pound pork butt that sells for 87 cents per pound.

Now, the trick is coming up with tasty recipes using inexpensive ingredients. Well, how does this 2013 Best Of list (in no particular order) sound to you: Soul Food Black-eyed Peas, BBQ Pulled Pork, Denise's Eggplant Burger, Chef Matt's Pecan Crusted Fish, Carnitas (Mexican-Style Pork,) Roasted Salsa Verde (Tomatillo Salsa), Baked Lasagna with Ground Chicken, Coconut Oatmeal, Green Beans & Ground Pork Stir Fry.

*Just click on any above name to see the text, photo and video illustrated blogpost recipe.

I got all the bases covered in my recipe compilation, everything from vegetarian to ethnic, and a full-on BBQ pork dinner to a unique breakfast oatmeal.

And my recipes are both entertaining and handsomely presented like no other food blog. I can't think of a website that uses easy-to-follow photo/text illustrated recipe directions, original cooking videos with family and friends, and even arty, but fun, stop motion recipe videos. Hey, I put everything I've learned in the media world to clearly and cleverly present recipes anyone can make and afford.

So dig in and check out my Top 9 Recipes of 2013, by clicking on the recipe list mentioned above.

And if that isn't enough, here are other 2013 recipes that deserve honorable mention: Ultimate Turkey Sandwich, Egg Salad, Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Mash, Party Clam Dip, Green Beans & Almonds, and Chiccarones (fried pig skin) Tacos.

Have a great New Year and do come back for more delish, cheap$kate recipes.
