This last year was a great year for finding the most delicious recipes! I have so many new favorites that I have already made over and over. It was really hard to just pick a few, but I narrowed it down to 15. Scroll down to the bottom to see what my number 1 recipe was this year. I hope you find something you missed or are reminded of a recipe that you want to make. I know I will continue to make all of these, but I am also looking forward to cooking this year, visiting other blogs, and finding more incredible recipes to share. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who take the time to “like” or comment or just read my posts. It really means a lot to me, and I hope you have found some recipes that have become your favorites as well. Here’s to another year of cooking together!
Creamy cheesecake plus tart lemon – who can resist that? Really, creamy cheesecake plus anything would probably always make my top 10 list.
14. Spinach and Artichoke Pizza
Trying to meet my goal this year of getting over my fear of yeast, I made my own pizza crust. What a wonderful way to get over a fear!
13. Creamy and Comforting Potato Soup
Total comfort food and the best potato soup I’ve ever had!
12. Dark Chocolate Brownie Sundaes
Because everybody needs a great homemade brownie recipe, and I finally found mine. So rich and chocolaty!
I had so much fun making my own granola. The vanilla flavor reallly comes through in this.
10. Lasagna Soup
I love making this for company. Everyone likes it.
9. Red Potato Breakfast Skillet
I wanted to find a breakfast dish to serve company at our cabin. This one is perfect.
8. Caramelized Pear Crostini with Honey and Thyme
I made this over and over again when I needed an appetizer in the fall. Simple to make yet great flavor!
These taste just like apple pie and are the perfect holder for a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I probably made these more than any other recipe this year. They freeze well which really helps during the busy holidays.
I am always on the lookout for a great cookie recipe and this one is the best!
Best carnitas recipe I’ve tried. So flavorful!
4. Blueberry Lemon Walnut Scones
It’s amazing how much lemon flavor these have, and combined with the blueberries, it is a perfect combination. I love these!
3. Apple, Bacon, and Pecan Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
This was my signature salad during the fall. The dressing is one of my favorites ever.
2. Classic Chocolate Pie with Homemade Whipped Cream
Perfect chocolate pudding from scratch and so easy. I will never use box pudding again.
1. Pumpkin Spice Dinner Rolls With Honey Butter
I am more happy about this recipe than any other this year because I actually made dinner rolls with yeast from scratch. And they turned out! I think I like the color of these just as much as the taste.
What a great collection of ‘keepers’ Shari –
I love your home made granola… must try those caramel apple pies too.
Have a great year in 2015.
Thank you so much, Emma! It’s great to see you here. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that 2015 is a healthy, happy one for you!
Thank you very much, Tamara! It is very nice to meet you. I appreciate you stopping by and look forward to checking out your blog!
You are welcome Shari and nice to meet you too! I am sure we will share some amazing recipe ideas trough our blogs..;)
Since you and I have been blogging buddies for less than a year, I had to pin almost everyone of these yummy recipes. How about if I just give you my Pinterest sign-in and you can just automatically do it when ever you post a recipe. Or I will just make a Shari board. 🙂 Great stuff!
Thank you so much, Julie. What a sweet thing to say! I appreciate your pins. I have really enjoyed finding your blog as well, and am excited to see what you make this year!
Every single one of these recipes sounds yummy, Shari!
Thank you very much, Nancy! I had a lot of fun putting this list together. I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and a great new years as well!
All of them look great, but I especially like #2, 5, 9 12 and 15. Yummy…
Thank you very much, Ana! I appreciate your feedback. I really wanted to put almost every one of my recipes on my favorites list. I guess I just love to cook and eat. I hope you had a great holiday, and I look forward to seeing your encouraging posts this year!
I love the previous comment re: a Pinterest “Shari Board”. That is a great idea!
I haven’t tried all of these, but the ones I have tried have been superb.
This collection looks like the start of a good cookbook… Just sayin’…
Thank you so much, Ruth! You are the best. I appreciate all of times you have tried my recipes and let me know that you or your family liked them. It means a lot. A cookbook would be fantastic. Maybe someday!:)
I have to cook several things from your blog this year. You’ve certainly left my mouth watering and yearning to taste…..I love all of them!
Thank you, Liz! I would like to make so many things from your blog, too. So many recipes, so little time!:) I appreciate your comment!
Thanks, Diana! It was a fun and delicious year of cooking. I appreciate you stopping by!
I have to send you my recipe for butter rolls. Very labor intensive but totally worth it. they are actually a parkerhouse roll with butter in the middle and I brush them with butter too. message me your email. It is one of those where you don’t need to guess on the flour.
Thank you so much, Toni! I would love to have your recipe for rolls. I haven’t experimented with rolls lately, and it is time to get back to it. They sound so good with the butter in the middle. I will message you soon!
