Top 20 Skinny Recipes For 2011

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Whew, the Holidays are almost behind us, I can finally exhale and slow down for the next few days and reflect about what a great year it has been for Skinnytaste and myself in 2011.

When I started this blog back in 2008, it was just a hobby that I really enjoyed. Never in my dreams would I have imagined what was to come.

In March of 2011, I left my full time job and career in the city which allowed me to give my 100% to Skinnytaste and spend more quality time with my baby. It was scary and exciting at the same time, but I wouldn ‘t change a thing!

And to my surprise, Skinnytaste even won some awards this year! I was so honored to win the SHAPE Magazine Best Healthy Eating Blogs 2011 and the Kitchn’s The Homies: Best Home Cooking Blog for 2011 . But of course, none of this would have happened without you, and for that I am humbly grateful.

So now it’s time to do my yearly round up of your favorite recipes for 2011. I asked all of you on facebook and twitter to share your favorite recipes from 2011, and I narrowed it down to these top 20, in no particular order… Thanks for all your feedback!! Hope you enjoy the recipes I have planned for 2012!!

    Our favorite recipe is the chicken nuggets. We have that at least once a month. I even made it on vacation with my in-laws.

  5. So yummy!! I absolutely love your site. I share it with all of my friends, especially when they are looking for WW recipes or great ways to sneak in more veggies in a super yummy way. ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm so glad you blog!!

  6. Just want to tell you that I LOVE your website! The photos are beautiful and the recipes are not too difficult. I perused this list and made the chicken pot pie soup and pineapple cupcakes yesterday and they are still amazingly good today. Happy New Year and thanks so much for spreading good food!

  7. I use one of your recipes at least on a weekly basis if not more frequently. Thanks for all that you do!

  8. I love this blog and I have even gotten a couple of my friends addicted to it too. Can't wait to see what you have in store for 2012!

  9. Thanks for creating great, nutritious recipes. You deserve awards just for providing nutritional info and WW points! You have made my life much easier and I enjoy being in the kitchen because I can still have some of my favorite recipes. You are very talented and have filled a much needed niche.

  10. Gina, thanks for all the fantastic recipes, and especially, thank you for providing both old and new WW points. That makes your site so special (along with the great recipes). And the pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting rock! Happy New Year!

  11. Gina I love your blog! I'm so glad my friend told me about it. I always look forward to trying the recipes and seeing what you have for us Thank you!

  12. Congratulations on your Shape award. That's impressive! You deserve it. I look forward to the encouragement bringing many more new recipes!

    It Is What It Is

    Happy New Year, Gina!

    I found your site in June, 2010 and have made and shared countless recipes.

    One of my go-to favorites STILL is your pumpkin pie dip. I make it several times a year for kids and adults and serve it with apple slices, bananas, or low fat graham crackers. It is a hit every single time and I've never had to change a thing.

    Looking forward to the good eats that 2012 brings.

    Happy new year Gina! All the best for you and your friends and dear family.
    I like to thank you for all the delicious recipes you offered us resulting in great and tasty dishes on my diner table.
    Big hugs.


  16. Wow. It's been a very eventful year for you! I genuinely think leaving your full-time job was a good idea. Sometimes only by closing one door will another open. And congratulations on your awards. I think that proves you made the right decision! All the best in 2012!

    Happy New Year Gina! I loved reading your post today. I am happy for you and all your wonderful success.

    As silly and as chain-mailish as this may seem, I have nominated you for the versatile blogger award. It is a way for me to say thank you for being such an inspiration and for having the courage to chase your dream.

    Looking forward to many more delicious recipes in 2012!
