Happy New Year! I started this blog on June 15th 2015, with a personal goal of posting at least once a week over the summer, with the hope of continuing regularly in the fall when school started. I fumbled pretty hard once September came around, but I feel that starting school again and moving to Boston are good excuses for falling behind. I’m about to start my Spring Semester, but luckily I’ll be working at an internship instead of taking classes. So, although I know the internship will keep me very busy, I’m looking forward to having more time to dedicate to this blog.
I wanted to do a little recap and share the top 5 recipes from the short time I’ve been running the blog. As of December 29th I’ve had 2,001 visitors to the blog, who have contributed a total of 2,687 views. The majority of those views came from the US. The top 5 posts in order are:
Layers of cool, creamy pudding, cream cheese, and cool whip with crunchy, chocolaty cookies make up this simple yet satisfying dessert. Check out the recipe here.
Homemade Devil’s Food Cake with Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Sauce
Rich, moist & chocolaty without being overly sweet. The addition of a full cup of espresso into the mixture adds amazing depth to the flavor. Find the full recipe here.
Lemon Dream Cake
Sweet white cake swirled with lemon and topped with fluffy, creamy frosting. Perfect by itself or with a little vanilla ice cream! Get the recipe here.
Iced Mocha Latte
Chocolate, caffeine and ice cold milk! A great way to start any summer day. Read how to make this drink here.
Pineapple, Strawberry & Orange White Sangria
Crisp, cold, fruity, slightly bubbly and very boozy – this strawberry, orange, lemon & pineapple sangria is a delicious summer drink. Get the recipe here.
Thanks everyone for a great year! I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish in 2016 :)
