Another vote for flourless chocolate cake, except with a peanut butter ganache.

I don't hold out much hope for my resolution to cut out desserts. Even limiting them looks iffy.

A friend of mine who is a food writer has been posting "realistic resolutions" on Facebook, including "eat more food dipped in chocolate," "incorporate pork in more meals and snacks," and "eat more tacos." I like his style.

We order this twice a year, once in the spring, and then in the winter for our birthdays. We both agree, it's the best dessert we've ever eaten in any year, this one included.

It's small and expensive but worth every penny.

Well...what springs to mind is a very exceptional pomegranate - unlike any other one I ever had. It was a deeper, more intense shade of dark red and tasted sooo full of flavour it was almost as if it had been marinaded in red wine! I was truly surprised and delighted. (It was quite a big pomegranate and obtained at a deli).

Makes a lot of sense, GG. I hope that by putting the emphasis on protein I'll be recalling a great entree instead of dessert come January 2016. Just requires reorganizing my priorities and maybe a little discipline.

Without a doubt, the best thing I ate in 2014 was the menudo that the owners of a local Mexican restaurant allowed me to share.
It is far and away the best menudo I have ever eaten.
I am however looking forward to the next visit of my nephew's in-laws who are originally from Mexico and currently reside in Texas. Jimmy's MIL is an excellent cook and she has promised to share some of her family recipes.

ooh, that's a hard one. a dizzying flood of mouthwatering food memories from 2014 is currently interfering with my ability to choose a single favorite. okay, okay, let's just say ONE of the most delicious things i ever put in my mouth last summer, was a white flesh peach, from a local peach orchard. it cost $1.20. which i remember thinking was an obscene amount of money to be charging for one small piece of fruit--that is, until i took that first bite, and then i was a goner--ripe sweetness, bursting with juices running down the arms heavenly delicious. and this celestial experience goes for a mere 1.20....

I've been thinking about this since the thread was started, and there is no way I can possibly pin it down. (Never had a dessert that I felt would go on the list though, but I'm not a huge fan of desserts.) I've eaten too many dishes that left me ecstatic while in the moment, and none can really be rated more highly than the others. Anything from homemade pizza to grouper fillets en papel to braised short ribs to Liz Ritchie's post holiday bean soup, made with the bones/carcasses from both ham and turkey holiday dinners (to die for, guaranteed).

To place any one above the others would be an injustice to the losers.

Risotto
My nephew is a chef in a local Italian restaurant. I took my mom to eat there and he came out to say hi and brought us a dish of his risotto. I have made it and have had at different places but his was absolutely wonderful. I had it a couple times through out the year, one his basic plain with cheese and one with basic and added in shrimp and asparagus yummy
