Top Ten Recipes of 2015

Top 10 FAVORITE Recipes of 2015 - that blew up Pinterest!! - www.countrycleaver.com

It’s that time of year again – where we recap the most popular recipes of the year. It’s really the end of 2015? Really?! But as we reflect on all of the changes that have come our way over the last 365 days, it’s fun to see what recipes really struck a chord with you, dear friends. Some of your favorites, not at all surprising. Others? I’m pleasantly surprised! One of your favorites was even a real shocker – it wasn’t a recipe at all!! I do always feel bad for the recipes published towards the end of the year, since they didn’t quite get the screen time that some of the ones at the beginning of the year did. So I will be sure to toss in a couple superlatives just to make sure they get their time to shine.  Ya know, like “Recipe Most Likely to Dance on Broadway”… that kinda thing. It will totally tap dance into your heart.

So, what recipes made your favorites for the year? Let’s find out!

Happy 2016, friends! I hope it’s covered in chocolate and sprinkled with love.
