Take a bow - What are your best post(s) of the year? Maybe even something that helped the s/n ratio
My favorite read was the magic house thread (a lighthearted look at food safety...)
bigfellow's What's for Dinner is an ongoing, inspiring read, book-worthy.
fourunder's contributions to the culinary skill of roasting meat is book-worthy, also. I mean that in a nice way.
Amusing menu gaffes, need I say more.
Left lasagna out, can I still eat it...continues to get traffic.
Conversely, anything with the words "white sauce," "bechamel," or "how to cook eggs"
I avoided like the plague after 10 minutes of rubber necking.
Many strong signals throughout 2009 from fellow contributors...

Substitute alkapal's 20009 waffle thread, please, for scuzzo's classic from '07...but that's where I learned of it...and both alkasis and scuzzo had creative additions here:
brown sugar bacon waffles! ..... or your creations? by alkapal:
Have YOU tried chili with cornbread waffles yet? Coming again soon to MY kitchen!
That's right soupkitten.
For me this year it was a May 11 post on the outer boroughs board about a great bread from Caruso found at Emily's Pork Store. The bread was to my knowledge never written about, a sadness.
My best ever was a response to an Oct. 17 wine board post about burgundy (Burgundy101). As a result of reckless spending I able to suggest several wines.
I'll second the Caruso bread post, which is the kind of tip that first got me hooked on Chowhound some years ago in San Francisco. I loved that bread and need to get back there.
BTW your post elicited replies that painted a mini-portrait of an Italian neighborhood that isn't often discussed on the NYC boards. And it got picked up in the Chow Digest ... http://www.chow.com/digest/2009/05/br...
