Top 10 Recipes of 2014
Taking a look back at the top 10 recipes of 2014 as viewed and shared by you!
I look forward to writing this post at the end of every year. To say that this was the biggest and best year yet for In Katrina’s Kitchen is an understatement. Of course I want to say thank you for reading my blog and for sharing my recipes with your friends and family. To think that I have a small place in your birthday celebrations and family gatherings is overwhelming. I love when you share your photos with me!
If you aren’t already following In Katrina’s Kitchen on Instagram I hope you pop over and connect with me there.
I love sharing sneak peeks with you,
and little bits here and there about what is going on in my real life.
I should also say a huge thank you for sticking with me as I wrote my first cookbook! It was a LOT of work and I wasn’t able to be as present here as I have in past years, but I’m so proud of this accomplishment and grateful for your enthusiasm and support. The Biscoff Cookie and Spread Cookbook!
Let’s take a look at 2014’s most viewed and shared recipes:
I love that this pie made the list because I prepared it and shot it in my grandmother’s pie plate. Both of my grandmothers have passed but I’m happy to have little reminders of them throughout my kitchen.
I made 3 batches of these in 1 week. No joke- these things are addictive!
I happily developed this recipe for the American Dairy Association – one of my most favorite brands to work with. My growing boys need a filling, healthy start to their day. They are eating machines!
We delivered these delicious candies to my son’s teachers and bus driver. Having requested the recipe, my kiddo tried explaining that his mom makes desserts and takes pictures of them for a living. #howembarrassing
It wouldn’t be a Top 10 here on In Katrina’s Kitchen without rainbow colors and sprinkles! This is my family’s favorite cheesecake recipe jazzed up with a hint of lemon and a whole lot of color. It’s just plain FUN!
After having made these cocktails both of my boys wanted them so badly that I used some delicious cream soda to make a non-alcoholic “mocktail” version for them- yum!
Having gone through this list I’m just now realizing I never shared the Lego head pops with you! I even promised!!! Ooops! If you still want them I’ll make a quick tutorial to show you how I put them together.
I made 2 batches this summer, and the neighborhood kids were disappointed when they were all gone.
I loved this cake because I made it in honor of my good friend Amanda (I am Baker blog) to celebrate her new book Surprise-Inside Cakes. I think I was looking forward to her book coming out more than my own. 😉 Seriously though this cake came together quickly and I decided not to even frost it… like, whoa!
Controversy!!! I kind of cannot believe that this smoothie recipe came in at number 1, (the irony on this blog!) but it sure is delicious and we all know how much I love coffee so I’ll take it! I can see where my labeling a recipe as “skinny” could potentially be frustrating because everyone has different health goals. However this smoothie recipe uses whole foods and no chemical sweeteners. I personally feel refreshed after drinking this following a good workout.
On the same note as last year, the social media favorite of the year was this recipe for my family’s Best Sugar Cookie. Thank you for making it your family’s favorite too. ♥ It was viewed over 1 million times in 2014 alone!
Cheers to 2015!
