Cheeseburger Bloody Mary by Taste With The Eyes

Cheeseburger Bloody Mary

Each January I post a round-up of my favorite Taste With The Eyes dishes from the previous year. But this time, I’m posting favorites as chosen by my friends on Pinterest – the pinboard-style photo-sharing website for collecting and organizing the things that inspire you. 

Our Cheeseburger Bloody Mary is hands down the year’s winner with over 6,000 pins in 2013. The second most popular pin was the Scallop Sliders, Banh Mi Style with over 3,000 pins. Here’s to sharing and collecting recipes that inspire us! Bon Appétit 2014…

  1. The most fun: the cheeseburger/bloody Mary ~ the most beautiful: the soup bliss ~ the most unusual: the watermelon carpaccio ~ the one I wanted to dislike [’cause do not like ‘deconstructed’ things] but could not: the Korean chicken salad . . . thank you for all . . .

  2. Happy New Year!!! I’m always inspired by your foods, decoration and pictures. I’m so glad that I found your blog last year and I’ll be looking forward to seeing your creative cooking, especially Korean foods, in 2014. If I choose the best one, even if it’s so difficult to make a selection, I would choose the stuffed cucumber kimchi which became a wonderful dish. ^^

  3. What a great year it was! And I am so glad to have had a hand in several of those “most pinned” dishes! Happy New Year, LL, and cheers to great food, fun, and friends in 2014!
