While cleaning up my computer, I found some photos of recipes I had never shared here.  In keeping with the new year, I am going to share them now and start 2014 with a clean slate!

Black Bean Brownies

I haven't a clue what recipe I tried, but apparently it just wasn't quite as good as the real thing as they never made it to the blog.  Perhaps I'll stick to eating my beans everyday and keeping them away from desserts ;)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

I actually have blogged about this cake before, but I adapted it a bit when making it to serve a crowd and it came out even better.  The entire 3 layers-worth of batter got baked into a sheet pan, creating thinner, more intense layers.  A bit of salted caramel sauce was drizzled in between the layers, and I finished off the bottom of the cake with some chopped honey roasted peanuts.  I was brought to tears the first time I tried to do this and swore I would never make it again, but it's happened two more times since then!

Fish Tacos

All I can remember about these is that they were delicious!  I signed up for the Cape Cod Fish Share for one season and these tacos were one of the delicious creations they inspired.  Looks like the fish was seasoned a bit and topped with cabbage, an avocado-citrus salsa and...  something creamy.  They were delicious, I wish I had written down the recipe!

Gingerbread Almond Butter Bars

For a gingerbread lover, I tried no less than three times to make gingerbread almond butter.  Each time it would look so creamy until I added the molasses.  And each time I ended up with a crumbly mixture whose only redeeming qualities was that it tasted good and could be formed into bars.

Peanut Butter Granola

I had some jungle peanuts around and thought they would look neat in some peanut butter granola. What do know, they do!  I think this was Lauren's recipe?

Pumpkin Granola Bars

These were good.  Really good.  They were an adaptation of a Smitten Kitchen recipe (I think this one), and I wish I still had this recipe!  There's a chance it's in a pile...  on the floor...  in the corner.  Maybe some day I'll have time to go through them.  Don't hold your breath.

Sweet Potato Vichyssoise

Another one of Lauren's recipes, this is a great recipe to have in your back pocket for when you have excess zucchini to use up in the summer!

Tomato Ice Cream

After my success with basil ice cream, I got the idea to try making a tomato ice cream using a technique I probably heard on the Splendid Table.  I even topped it with tomato jam!  But it just didn't do it for me.  Make tomato jam with your tomatoes instead :)

White Chicken Chili

Everyone's probably got a recipe out there for white chicken chili, and I tried one of them!  I don't think it was my favorite, so I will have to come up with my own- I hear a storm is coming, that's perfect chili making time.

What are you looking forward to in 2014??

I really wish I had some of my outtakes still saved in my pictures folder but I clean it out once the season has passed. Next year I'm totally saving the didn't-get-blogged recipes for a post like this!
