Rather than posting a new recipe today, I thought that I would give you a tantalizing feast of the ten most popular blog posts for this past year. J. and I are at that point in our relationship where we have a lot of holiday traditions so I'm looking forward to everything we have planned tonight. Enjoy this review of 2012 and be safe tonight where ever your plans take you and look for a new post tomorrow.
1.) Hocus Pocus Buns, this delicious blog from July is by far the most viewed post on this blog. If you're looking for something easy to make, you most likely have most of the ingredients.
2.) Red Velvet Poke Cake, this dessert blog from September is perfect for the holidays or for any celebration because of the great color contrast.
3.) "I Love You More Than ..." Cookies, this blog from September show cases one of my anniversary gifts to J. this recipe is perfect for anniversaries, birthdays and Valentine's Day which is coming up soon ( *hint, hint*).
4.) Fried Zucchini with Hibachi Yum Yum Sauce, this blog from July is the perfect summer recipe to help use up fresh garden zucchini, but the hibachi yum yum sauce is good for vegetable stir-fry anytime.
5.) Chess Squares, this blog from July has been incredibly popular. I found it to be overly sweet and I had a lot of trouble getting mine to set properly, but so many people have searched for this recipe that maybe it deserves a redo.
6.) Fancy Ramen, this blog from September is the perfect recipe for a college student or for a working adult who just wants to eat a quick dinner. Use up those cheap ramen noodles without using that gross seasoning packet.
7.) Egg Drop Ramen, this blog from October is a guest post from Becky and is another flavorful way to use ramen without the seasoning packet, stock up on some ramen!
6.) Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shots, this blog from July is a great new way to make shots. I brought these to a weekend get-away and they were a huge hit! Great for any party.
10.) Sex in a Pan, this dessert blog from August was a recipe that I tried solely because of that name. It was decadent and a hit with all of J.'s roommates.
I hope you enjoyed this review of the most popular recipes from 2012. I know I'm looking forward to everything 2013 has to offer!
