We may have to refer fondly to 2011 as the Year of the Three Cs…

Carbs. Cheese. Chocolate.

Those three seem to be the standout things on our list of the Top 100 Posts on TasteSpotting this past year. But why wouldn’t they be? Carbs in any form — bread, pasta, potatoes — were a source of comfort (at least in the TasteSpotting HQ Kitchen) during those sometimes, somewhat unsettling moments this past year. And carbs combined with melted, goozy (“gooey” + “oozing”)? We’re pretty sure that if every world leader would sit down at a table together to eat giant bowls of the stuff, we’d save the planet.

Of course, there are lots of other awesome, delicious, gorgeous things in the mix, and this list is only a reflection of what the TasteSpotting audience made “popular” by clicking, commenting, or favoriting. (Perhaps some ideas for you bloggers who are planning your posting strategy for 2012?)

We have lots of lists to share with you – past trends, future predictions, etc. We just need to dig into the data for a minute, so stay tuned. In the mean time, click through and check out each of the 100 posts!

Happy New Year!
