Top 10 Recipes of 2014

 

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,

behind-the-scenes shots,

and little bits here and there about what is going on in my real life.

The Biscoff Cookie and Spread Cookbook by Katrina Bahl Coming 2014

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:

10. Mile High S’mores Pie 

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.

9. Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pretzel Nuggets

I made 3 batches of these in 1 week. No joke- these things are addictive!

8. Ombre Fruit and Yogurt Cups

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!

7. Sugar Cookie Dough Cups

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

Sugar Cookie Dough Cups are like a peanut butter cup only better! Customize these candy cookie cups with sprinkles to match any holiday or party theme.

6. Rainbow Cheesecake

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!

5. Strawberry Chantilly Cocktails

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!

4 Lego Cake

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.

Lego Cake- simple design! No special tools or skill level necessary!

3. No-Bake Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches

I made 2 batches this summer, and the neighborhood kids were disappointed when they were all gone.

2. Surprise-Inside Dotty Cake

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!

Surprise Inside Dotty Cake- simple to make and sure to impress!

 

1. Rise and Shine Skinny Coffee Smoothie

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!

    One of my new year’s resolutions is try and learn more about the kitchen (my skill level is literally 0!) but with these fun ideas it doesn’t seem like such a chore! Excited to try some of these out 🙂

    Planning to make your delightful Lego cake for my little guy’s third birthday. Would you still be willing to share how you made the Lego head pops?
