Top 10 Posts of 2014

I’ve been catching up on blog reading this lazy January weekend, and in reading a few other people’s top 10 of 2014 lists, I realized that I had never published my own. Since I was curious as to what they were, I decided to dig into my stats and find out. And I was happy with what I found: some canning & preserving, some DIY, some healthy vegetable dishes and fat-laden bacon-y treats. All in all, a healthy mix of topics were a hit this year: bravo you!

Thanks, as always, for making the trip with me through the year. It wouldn’t be nearly as much fun without you. Here’s to a happy & healthy 2015, everyone!

chipotle-beef10. Leftover Love: Slow-Roasted Chipotle Beef

The Leftover Love series was a big hit early in the year last year, with lots of folks telling me they were inspired to see leftovers in a new light. If I could have one food wish for 2015? It would be the Year We Learn to Love the Leftover.

peanut-butter9. On the tyranny of homemade

This random musing, about the various (and sometimes wacky) reasons we do, or don’t, make the things we do, resonated with a lot of you.

I’m still hoarding my small stash. And now dreaming of summer tomatoes….

It was the sauce that pulled people into this one.

Citrusy, herby mac & cheese. What’s not to love?

An easy veg curry, inspired by one I made in Brazil.

A Use It or Lose It! classic, breathing new life into leftover, dried-out chicken breast via a long, slow braise in barbecue sauce.

Need I say more?

fennel-salt1. Candied Fennel Stalks + Fennel Frond Salt

This one made the rounds on Pinterest, and I’m pretty thrilled that something so esoteric, and “root-to-stem” cookish, is #1 on the blog this year.
