By: Frank Samperi

Help us celebrate the end of 2010 with a round-up of all your Cooking Channel favorites. This week we're looking back at the shows, recipes, foods and photos you loved the most.

#1 Recipe of 2010: Ching's Chicken Chow Mein

Cooking Channel fans went absolutely mad about Ching's classic recipe from hit show Chinese Food Made Easy. "I love this simple dish with plenty of fresh crunchy vegetables" she says. "It couldn't be easier or healthier!" We hope that many of you tried this dish on your own—we want to hear! 

#2. Bal's Crispy Sweet Potato Cakes

The Spice Goddess's sweet-potato take on the traditional side was a Cooking Channel favorite all season long.

#3. Laura Calder's Powder Puffs

Dainty, delicate and dusted with powdered sugar, these cookies kicked off the holiday cookie craze for most everyone!

#4. Bal's South-Indian Style Chicken

Cooking Channel fans were looking for a little heat, and they found it in the Spice Goddess's rich and exotic stew.

#5. Laura's Easy Pastry Shop Apple Tart

Apples are one of the most iconic signs that fall is here, and Laura's apple tart got everyone excited for fall baking.

#6. Pumpkin Pie from Sara's Secrets

Perhaps even more than turkey, pumpkin pie is the quintessential dish without which no Thanksgiving dinner is complete.

#7. Laura Calder's Pommes De Terre à la Boulangere

Dressed in olive oil and butter, and seasoned with salt, pepper and thyme, Laura's dish is the perfect side for most any meal.

#8. Rachael Ray's Roast Chicken Enchilada Suizas Casserole

Once her new show debuted on Cooking Channel, Rachael's recipes went off the charts! Here's the clear people's choice.

#9. Bal's No-Butter Chicken

Who needs butter to make a rich, Indian classic? Not Bal—and apparently none of you, judging by how hot this recipe was.

#10. Bal's Cauliflower with Sweet Potatoes

Bal scores again with her hearty vegetable side, fragrant with coriander, cumin and turmeric.
