Fan Picks from the Cookbook

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: News

Although I hate to admit it, I have some clear favorite recipes in the cookbook and Scott does too. During the testing process for the book, there were some clear favorites among the testers as well.

This, of course, made me wonder what the fan favorites would be -- what would everyone make first? make the most? blog and tweet about? 

I had my suspicions and I was half on the money. I expected the queso, nacho cheese and low fat pb to take over and the queso surely has!

What, perhaps, surprised me the most, was the overwhelming number of people who have made the chocolate-zucchini muffins. In fact, I dare say that recipe is the one most people try first. (Granted, I'm pulling all this information for the tweets, emails and facebook comments I've read).

Anyway, I asked the Herbies on Facebook what they'd made so far, to get a gist of what recipes had the biggest appeal. (You can read all their answers here).

Based on overlapping answers --- here is what I deduce as the most popular fan recipes:
