Let the countdown begin and where’s my champagne?
Another year has nearly made its way into the archives and left me feeling a little reflective. Maybe it’s because I’ve taken a bit of a holiday blog and social media sabbatical, leaving me more time to focus on my family—how is my Smudge growing into a totally fun pre-teen so fast?— and think about what FoodieCrush might look like in 2014.
That led me to looking at what you liked the most of FoodieCrush this past year and sharing them, once again, with you.
Thank you for following the antics that go on around here, and if you have any ideas or input about what you’d like to see in 2014, I’d love to see them in the comments below, or shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheers to you and here’s to more to come in the new year.
Without further adieu, here is your top 10 favorite FoodieCrush recipes.
Simplicity is the key to this salad, along with ripe and flavorful garden ingredients topped with a deliciously fruity olive oil and simple sprinkle of kosher salt.
This was my daily breakfast when I worked in an office since I only had a microwave to do my cooking in. Now that I work from home, I’m still holding onto my old ways and making making breakfast minus the stove.
There are plenty of rib recipes out there, but this one makes for an especially easy way to create a moist and tender finger licker dinner.
This recipe is thanks to blogger Averie Cooks and her cookbook filled with scrumptuous peanut butter treats. Surprisingly, it’s the only sweet to make the top 10.
The big pay-off with this recipe is the roasty taste of fresh tomatillos, that makes the salsa perfectly dippable.
Giving guests a bowl of something punchy makes the party all that more special, instead of just popping a beer or bottle of wine. Come on, show them you really care.
Oh how I love this recipe. The special thing about it is the sesame dressing that delicately dresses the addition of rotini pasta and shredded chicken.
Yep, add bacon to just about anything and it goes wild. Slap it with a few slices of cheese and forget about it. Step right up and enjoy.
How much I love stewing and braising chicken just can’t be emphasized enough on this bloggity blog. This for sure is one of my favorite recipes and can easily be adaptable to a myriad of different flavors.
Annnnddd…the number one recipe of the year, with over 80,000 pins since October, is this true, slow cooker recipe. A true slow cooker recipe because there’s no braising, no extra pots or pans to dirty. And tons of flavor to savor. That’s the reason it’s number one.
As always, all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting companies I partner with, which allows me to create more unique content and recipes for you.
