Another year of great food is over. I can’t believe how fast it goes by!
Thank you for coming to my small space here on the interweb. It brings me immense joy that you all spend time here and love making my recipes.
According to my analytics, these were the most popular posts for 2013. And I totally understand.
Valentines Day Peek A Boo Pound Cake – I made this for Haley’s birthday, which just happens to be right before Valentine’s Day. But customizable for any holiday, really. And super cute!
Back to School Lunchbox - keeping things real with simple and realistic lunchbox ideas for your kids. Because most of us are not Martha Stewart.
(Copycat) Chipotle Steak Burrito – Chipotle is really the only fast food I ever truly crave. Badly. In the 12 years I’ve been going there, I always get the same exact thing. This burrito. So I decided to see if I could replicate it at home. Pretty damn close, friends. And certainly fantastic.
Easy Cashew Chicken – this super easy recipe is a standard in our house and one of my favorite one-pot dishes. It’s now been replicated around the blogosphere :)
Grilled Fish Tacos with Chili Lime Slaw – the simple spice rub and crunchy kicked-up coleslaw, along with soft, flavorful corn tortillas, balanced out perfectly with a mellow white fish. These are awesome!
Crock Pot Apple Kielbasas Bites – only 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep required here. Juicy pieces of kielbasa bites that practically melt in your mouth from slow cooking all day. So good.
Skittles Marshmallow Pops – these little treats are super easy and can easily be altered to accommodate your kids’ favorite color. Unless it’s black…there are no black skittles. That’s not part of the rainbow.
Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage – all clean eating here, with fresh ingredients and nothing from a can. Set it and forget it and come home to a fully balanced, delicious meal.
French Toast Roll Ups – french toast filled with your favorite spread and rolled up. The innards are all gooey and the outside is slightly crunchy. It all just melts in your mouth!
Kahlua Coffee Poke Cake – this has been my go to brunch dessert for years. The icing sinks into all the holes and creates a rich, moist, and coffee flavored chocolate cake. Seriously delish. I’ve declared it the original poke cake!
Cornbread Hamburger Pie – sloppy joes and cornbread come together in this super easy, super tasty, quick, one pan, inexpensive, dish.
Lemony Herb Tuna Melts with Fontina – tuna and herbs combined with tangy lemon, with crispy bread and gooey cheese. Omg. I know.
Layered Greek Dip – hummus, feta, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, and a chip used to scoop it all up. I feel ya.
Pineapple Nilla Dip – hard to go wrong when cream cheese and powdered sugar are involved!
Strawberries and Cream Smoothie – 4 ingredients. 5 minutes. Pure deliciousness. This is dreamy and perfect for any strawberry lover, like my son.
Coming up tomorrow are my picks for 2013!
