10 Most Popular Recipes of 2014

A whole year has almost gone by. Can you believe it?

This year has been life changing for me. I finally got my license, started working as a dental hygienist, and reached so many personal milestones with my blog.

Thank you so much for staying with me on this amazing journey! And I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2015!

Today, I thought that I’d share with you some of my most popular recipes.

10 Most Popular Recipes of 2014

Pho Thai

Vietnamese pho noodles in Thai spicy and sour soup with shrimp, mushrooms, and refreshing basil, a quick and easy recipe for a cold dreary day.

If you haven’t tried this soup yet, I think you really should, especially if you’re a lover of both Vietnamese and Thai cuisines.

Loaded Hash Browns

Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, these hash browns are quick and easy to make and taste amazing. Add a dollop of sour cream, a crumbled strip of turkey bacon, a sprinkle of cheese, and a pinch of scallions, and it’s like a baked potato but even better.

Crispy potatoes and bacon are my weakness! A year later, this is still one of my absolute favorite breakfast options.

Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread

Warm garlic bread with melted cheese in every single delicious bite. Crunchy on top and soft on the inside, this cheese garlic pull apart bread is perfect for serving guests.

Cheesy garlic bread? I really can’t resist. And these remind me of Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits, just much softer.

Blackberry Mint Iced Tea Lemonade

Iced tea lemonade with a hint of mint and crushed blackberries, a refreshing drink for a hot summer day. 

Remember those Starbucks iced tea lemonades? Well, now you can make them at home.

I love quiche, and this crustless version is so simple to make.

Warm Autumn Brussels Sprouts Salad

This warm autumn Brussels sprouts salad is loaded with spinach leaves, sliced pears and apples, pomegranate seeds, sweet grape tomatoes, and persimmon, embodying the flavors of fall. Tossed together, this salad is both sweet and savory with no need for additional salad dressing.
