From Scratch's Top 10 Recipes from 2014!

As we kick off 2015, there's a lot great things on the horizon!  But today, I'm looking back, to the top 10 most popular posts from last year.  And let me tell you, you readers have got good taste!  There's a year's worth of tastiness summed up in these 10 posts!




January, 2014: Cinnamix and Cinnaminis

Apparently, I'm not the only one who misses PC's blend of sweet cinnamon goodness, because it's one of the most searched for recipes on my blog.


March, 2014: Sham-Shamrock Shake

This boozy (or not, for the kiddios) concoction is still one of my favorites.  It's so full of minty goodness that you won't miss the green at all!


May, 2014: Rosemary Rhubarb Jelly

Thanks to a shout out from Marisa McClellan, the author of Preserving By the Pint, on her own blog, this post skyrocketed to be not only one of the most popular posts of 2014, but in the history of From Scratch!  And the jelly is absolutely gorgeous and tastes divine!


May, 2014: Garden Mint Honey Caramels

This recipe for caramels is amazing!  It really kicked me off on a caramel-creating kick that included wonderful spin-offs like my Browned Butter Basil Caramels.  The sweet, the mint...these easy-to-make caramels have everything you could ask for.


June, 2014: Zabaglione

My entire fairytale romance with the hubs in one simple dessert.  It's so, so good!  I really should make this more often.  Like maybe twice a week.  ;)


July, 2014: Slow Cooker Blueberry Pulled Pork

I'm so glad that this one was a hit!  It took a lot of tweaking to get this recipe to work in the slow cooker, but it was totally worth it.  Fruit and pork are a great combination, and this recipe knocks it out of the park!


October, 2014: Homemade Candy Corn

This one is a family tradition for my kids, and I'm sure it will be one that stands the test of time.  It's so much tastier than the stuff you buy in the store, and you can have fun playing with the flavors and colors to make it your own!


November, 2014: Posole Verde

One of my favorite stews of all time.  Fresh tasting and satisfying, full of interesting flavors.  Comfort food, for real.


November, 2014: Beet Blondies

These eye-catching treats are rich and sweet, and one of the most unique variations in my blondie streak.  For someone who's not a big beet fan, I'm sure learning how to find ways that I enjoy chowing on them!


November, 2014: Turkey Gumbo

My father-in-law's method for making our traditional turkey gumbo was a huge hit on the blog, and that just makes me grin from ear to ear!  It's a family favorite, and I'm so glad that others are getting the chance to enjoy it as well.

So, there you have it!  The top 10 most popular posts on From Scratch from 2014!  I can't wait to see what's in store for 2015, because there are great things on the horizon!
