Tammy and I talked about starting this blog for a long time. But there was always something holding us back: time, lack of equipment, lack of computer savvy, and did I mention TIME? (Kudos to all you fellow bloggers who understand that there really is time and effort behind all of this.) Well, in April we finally said, you know, it may not be perfect, but let’s just go for it! And here we are.
So thanks for putting up with our learning curve. We think we are getting better! We are having more fun than ever and want to keep sharing more food and above all, help you catch the vision of taking a recipe and making it your own.
We just wanted to give you a quick recap of our 10 most popular recipes of 2013. If you haven’t already we hope you’ll check them out and find something that you like. And please, shoot us a comment and let us know what you’d like to see more of in 2014 and we’ll put in on the menu!
#1. PARMESAN PULL APART BREAD (ROLLS): This recipe wins by a landslide! It’s a fun one, because it was kind of an afterthought when we got together for dinner one night and were trying to figure out a quick bready side for our fagioli soup. Winner! They are really pretty easy to make, and using freshly grated Parmesan just takes these over the top.
#2. FLUFFY WHITE DINNER ROLLS: Another nice bready side for any meal. Basic and classic.
#3. VEGETABLE LASAGNA WITH WHITE SAUCE: A savory lasagna without all the guilt. Loaded with veggies and goodness.
#4. GARDEN FRESH MINESTRONE SOUP: The freshest minestrone you will ever taste. Jam-packed full of veggies! Easily convert to an all-veggie soup if you’d like.
#5. CHOCOLATE STUFFED PEPPERMINT SUGAR COOKIES: A fun holiday cookie to make with the kids!
#6. STRACCIATELLA CREAM CHEESE PUMPKIN ROLL: Have you been intimidated by pumpkin rolls? Come here for some tips and tricks so it will turn out perfectly every time. Make it with or without the shaved chocolate.
#7. CHEDDAR CAULIFLOWER SOUP (ZUPA’S COPYCAT): Creamy, easy, delicious!
#8. COCONUT CREAM PIE WITH CHOCOLATE PAINTED CRUST: A perfect pie, anytime of the year really. The silky smooth filling and chocolate shell lining really take this all-ready perfect pie to the next level.
#9. HOMESTYLE CHICKEN OR TURKEY POT PIE WITH PARMESAN CRUST: When you need some warm, feel-goodery homestyle cookin’, try this pot pie recipe. The crust is flaky, full of flavor, and basically just amazing!
#10. GIANT LAVA MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKE: Aww! Our very first post! And you all supported us even though we really didn’t have any pictures or style yet (hopefully we’ve gotten a little better overtime, at least we think!)….We’ll have to do an update on this one sometime now that we have better equipment. Then it will really getting your taste buds watering, especially for you chocoholics!
