Happy New Year!

My first full year as a novice food blogger, and it’s been a crazy one! Lots of incredible recipes, a huge amount of learning about both cooking and blogging, and a very busy end of the year! I’m making a number of blog-based resolutions this year, including better photos and a re-designed site, but that will take me a few weeks to really get into. I’ve been cooking up a storm the last few days, and have upcoming recipes from the website Chefsteps.com that I’ve been trying, namely cornbread and baked beans. I’ll post one tomorrow and the other in a few days, and they’re well worth giving a try. I’ve never seen cornbread disappear as fast as it did when I served this recipe two nights ago.

Since everyone else seems to do it, and you all might find it interesting, here are my five most popular recipes from last year:

5. Healthy Chocolate Truffles

4. Homemade Spicy BBQ Sauce

    Happy first year (and Happy NEW YEAR)! Love these recipes – that fruit pic just looks so fresh and inviting to me in mid-winter Ohio! And I haven’t tried your Oven Roasted Corn on the Cob yet – what a great idea! Can’t wait for more of your awesome recipes in 2014! 😀

      Happy New Year! And thank you, the fruit pic is probably my favorite from last year and the corn on the cob is wonderfully simple. I tried your pumpkin pie oatmeal on January 2nd, and it was a huge hit. I’ll be blogging about it in a few days. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with this year!
