I love this event and look forward to it all year. The food, the challenges and the people, plus I get to play with the best group of hosts ever.
I made a lot of recipes this quest and enjoyed them all. Narrowing it down is very difficult...so I have decided to do it this way. I will pick my two favorite dishes and then will name 3 honorary dishes, because they are all worthy to be Best Of.
Thank you to those of you who tried my recipes and thank you to everyone for sharing your recipes.

This dish was awesome, I knew that I would enjoy it, I just didn't realize how much. I have made it three times and it is just as good each time as the first time. After I made this delicious salad, I thought about it for three days, before I had to make it again. So good, love the combination of herbs, pineapple, cucumber and sauce...so very delicious and memorable.

For my second favorite I chose this delicious recipe because I am not a fan of potato salad but this is so good, I couldn't help myself, I made it again for my granddaughters birthday bbq dinner. It was enjoyed by everyone. Lazy your recipe has made a potato salad fan of me.
- Little Orange Cakes (Bolinhos de Laranja) by Vickie
These were so good, that I had a hard time stopping myself from eating them all. I was shocked, I never do that. Light tender fluffy and flavorful, a wonderful dessert. One I will make often.
Tomato Salad with Fried Feta by PanNan
This truly was an amazing dish. I never tried fried feta before, but I see it in my future... often. So good, so many wonderful flavors in this recipe.
- Heaving Apple Pancakes by diner
Anyone that knows me, is aware of my love affair with pancakes. This recipe was truly a no brainer for me. I loved this souffle style pancake that was light, tender and full of apples and cinnamon. So good, I will be enjoying this often.
