2014: A Year in Review

The year is coming to a close and I wanted to do a quick recap of some of  the recipes Angie and I have shared with you throughout the year. These are some of out most viewed posts of the year, so for our returning readers, we’re showcasing your favorites! Although the second half of 2014 wasn’t the most consistent year content-wise, we still managed to put out a couple really good ones, and we hope that you enjoyed them as much as we did!

1. Quinoa Fried Rice

One of our first posts, this is my go-to quinoa fried rice recipe. Guaranteed to spice up your plain old quinoa, it’s a clean and healthy alternative that stands out from the rest of our usually decadent blog posts. Filled with chicken and veggies, it can just as easily be altered to fit your vegetarian/vegan/picky-eater preferences.

This actually sold really well to my brother, who usually hates quinoa. Yay!

 

2. Rocky Road Brownies

We took your go-to brownie recipe and took it to the next level with walnuts and a browned marshmallow topping, turning it into a ice-cream flavor inspired variation. Best served warm and gooey, this recipe has gotten tons of love on foodgawker and tastespotting because it’s honestly that good.

browning the marshmallows with the broiler after baking was the perfect finishing touch

3. Blueberry Scones

Crumbly and flaky in all the right ways, this classic blueberry scone recipe was a favorite among you guys this year. Perfect on crisp winter mornings with a cup of hot tea, it’s definitely a keeper.

4. XXL Cowboy Compost Cookies

A variation on the classic cowboy cookie inspired by the idea behind Momofuku’s compost cookie. Made XXL so its big enough to share, but small enough to keep all for yourself.

Y’all really have quite the savory palette. These naan flatbread pizzas were one of our very first posts, and is still something that I make to date. It’s such an easy and versatile dish, there’s no wonder why you guys keep coming back to it.

– This year, I traveled to  San Francisco and  the East Coast and was fortunate enough to be able to share all the great food that I had while I was there.

– We also put out our monthly favorites (for most of the year) in hopes of getting better connected with you guys. I  included everything from the music I liked, to the snacks I obsessed over, and the clothing trends I fell in love with each month.

And that’s a wrap for 2014! It’s been such a busy year for us, and we’d like to thank you from the very bottom of our otherwise cold souls. We genuinely thank all of you for staying with us through our extended absences and we hope you’ve enjoyed reading our content as much as we’ve enjoyed sharing it with you. Cheers to 2015!
