It is fun and beneficial to take a step back and look over the past year to see which posts you liked the best. Considering that I was barely posting during my six months break from blogging (while I worked on my e-cookbook), I am pleasantly surprised with how high some of my posts in 2016 scored.
Now that my focus is back on blogging, it will be even more fun to look back at the end of next year. Sweets are ranking high, to no surprise. Although my goal for next year is to eat less of them, it doesn’t mean I will make less sweets. I just have to be disciplined about not eating them. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m giving up New Year resolution before the New Year. Aren’t I pathetic? To avoid being a complete looser, I did set some attainable goals for the next year. You can read them in my newsletter tomorrow. Sign up so you receive our weekly tips and updates, if you haven’t already!
So, my friends, for 2017 I promise more booze and sweets as it seems to be everyone’s favorite. As I mentioned above, this summary is beneficial as I learned what interests my readers and I want to make my readers happy. Let’s go down the 2016 memory lane.All that's Jas 2016 #top 10 #posts Click To Tweet
My 2016 Top 10 Posts
This cake was popular for the obvious reasons: Nutella and Baileys, hello! And the fact that it’s only made with three ingredients. Flourless yummy cake, what’s not to like?
You gotta love science! And people who are willing to try things out and come up with cool drinks like this one. Its effect totally won me over and I’m glad you liked it too!
Do you see a pattern here? Baileys! Yep, it’s even in the Jellyfish Shot, ha! I posted this recipe for homemade Baileys only three weeks ago and it already made the top 10! Baileys and Nutella, a match made in heaven. Free Christmas printable helped this post’s popularity too, I’m sure.
Easy and quick pizza, using Naan bread for the crust, is our favorite. The size is perfect for a personal pizza and it only takes 10 minutes from the oven to the plate, including adding the toppings.
This beer and cheese soup with bacon and French fried onions is tasty and warming, perfect for Oktoberfest and game nights!
Simple recipes are the best. Quick, easy, and with only few ingredients these are always crowd pleasers. Sweet potatoes are good for you and they are a must on our holiday table.
We had an abundance of zucchini last fall and I added it to the cake which kept it moist. Blueberries and lemons just go so great together. I will be making this cake again next fall!
I made these for my granddaughters’ double birthday party and they were a HIT! A popular dish made into bite-size makes all the difference. Who would’ve thought?
This one surprised me. I love goat cheese, but didn’t think many of you do too. Or maybe it got so many views because you thought it’s weird? Nevertheless, it placed #2 on the list.
It doesn’t surprise me that this cake is on the top of the list. I wish I could show you my granddaughters’ faces when I cut into it. Priceless!
And now a bonus, the top viewed post of all time:
I love cheesecake fusions, as you well know, and I am so happy that is one is the most popular. It is my favorite too!
