For all you Food Network fans out there, the station has put up a list of their Top 100 recipes of 2007 on their website. Reading through it is a bit like watching several hours of programming in under a few minutes. Both #1 and #2 on the list are macaroni and cheese – one baked, one not – and others in the top 10 include roast turkey, french toast casserole, country stuffing, chicken and rice casserole and a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf. It’s not clear whether the list is taken from the editor’s favorites or user favorites, but I would guess that they’re the most popular/most frequently accessed recipes on the site from this year.
If the Top 100 aren’t to your tastes, try using the regular recipe finder on the FoodTV site instead of skipping it entirely. The search on the website is a pretty good tool because it gives you access to most of the dishes that have been on the network over the past several years. Lots of top chefs have made guest appearances and you can still look up recipes from old favorites, like Sara Moulton, who are no longer on the network.
