Countdown: Top 10 Posts

What a wonderful year it has been as I reflect back to the last year. When I started this blog, I had no idea the warm and inviting community I was entering and the wonderful people I was about to meet. Thanks to all of you, my readers and friends, for making this adventure a thrilling and fun ride. To celebrate the dawn of a new year, I thought we would take a look back. Back to the top 10 posts.


Sooo... let's begin with...

#10



My tried and true chocolate chip biscotti
This recipe came from a Bed and breakfast and has been a family favorite for 10 years. You can substitute the chocolate chips for whatever you like or mix a few favorites. White chocolate chip and macadamia nuts are good too!




#9
Mock Hostess Cupcakes: These bite size cupcakes look just like a miniature Hostess Cupcake. Chocolate cake, cream center, an a chocolate glaze under a white chocolate Hostess swirl. Perfect for a Valentine picnic.

#8
Coconut Truffles: Moist coconut center that reminds me of a Mounds candy bar. These made a perfect Christmas gift.


#7
Chili Verde This made for a very tasty dinner. Think Cinco de Mayo of anytime the Mexican urge hits!


#6
Coconut Layer Cake Pastry cream in the middle of this 3 layer cake makes it perfect for any occasion.


#5
Cinna-spin cookie This award winning cookie starts with a package of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix. Sometimes you need a head start and this is the cookie for those late nights when the kid says (at 7 o'clock) that they have to bring treats to class or scouts.


#4
Ricotta Pound Cake This cake took me by surprise and I loved it. It's melt in your mouth texture is perfect with a cup of fresh brewed coffee.


#3
How to make a checkered cake without a special pan. This cake is always a show stopper and really quite easy to make. A great alternative to a marble cake, my daughters favorite.


#2

Mexican Breakfast Casserole: A lot of ingredients, an easy dish. Make this casserole the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. Delicious!



And...



for the #1 post...







Olive Penguins: Even though this was my last post, these little guys have created quite a ripple. Four easy to find ingredients, these cute little appetizers are perfect for Christmas or to ring in a new year.

I hope you enjoyed this reflection of the past as much as I have. I pray the new year is joyous, prosperous, and healthy. God Bless!



Happy New Year!
