farewell to 2014

I just got a lovely email from WordPress sharing my blog stats for the year.

Guess what?! This blog has been viewed about 76,000 times in 2014. And I would estimate that only about 4,000 of those came from me and my mom!

It’s been a crazy year. I got a white coat, moved to Rochester for a new job, my sister got engaged, I watched my oldest friend get married, and made 11 quilts.



Over the holidays I also made 3 salads to feed about 40 people each. Gotta love food styling.

Sometimes I think about giving up on the blog because I’m so busy with other things, but then I talk to people who tell me that they enjoy reading it (even if it’s only once a week) so I figure I’ll keep it up as long as I can!

For today, I ranked my top 10 favorite recipes from 2014 for you!

10) Apple Cheesecake Crumble

9) Sriracha Honey Baked Chicken Wings

8) Crockpot Sesame Chicken

7) Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies

6) Broccoli Salad

5) Cold Brewed Iced Coffee

4) Eggplant Parm Salad

3) Lentil Salad with Apples and Blue Cheese

2) Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

1) Kale Salad with Cured Lemon Dressing

Only 2 desserts on that list and I picked KALE as my favorite. Does that make me basic? I don’t even care. I have dreams about that kale salad.


Have a wonderful New Year, everyone!
