2014 Fan Favorites

This year has gone so fast! Between my new job, the boyfriends new job, all the travel and moving into our first house, I've hardly had any time to cook or bake this year. Now that we have all settled into our new routines, expect WITK to get back to normal in 2015. Until then, here are the five most popular recipes from 2014!

5. Hazelnut Cream Cheese Brownies - I was not surprised at all that you guys loved these brownies. They were amazing! Make these for your friends, family, coworkers, everyone. They will love you.

4. Watermelon Mallow Cookies - Since I'm obsessed with marshmallows, I made a number of different recipes this year. These watermelon cookies were a hit at the office. The flavor came from a watermelon candy oil, rather than trying to concentrate watermelon flavor from a juice. Candy oil is definitely an easy way to add intense flavor, it just doesn't taste natural at all!

3. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bars - As a part of Perry's Ice Cream - Inside Scoopers group, I am lucky enough to receive a package of new ice cream flavors each year. Perry's is a brand that is local to my hometown, Buffalo, NY. Their all natural dark chocolate was the star of these ice cream sandwiches!


2. Rigatoni with Pepperoni, Mozzarella and Arugula - From my Cook the Books 2014 challenge, this dinner was quick, easy and delicious. I've made this multiple times this year!

1. Quiche with Sweet Peppers and Sausage - Also from my Cook the Books 2014 challenge, this quiche was an amazing dinner! I think I made a lot of quiches this year because all you need are some eggs and a pie crust! I recommend keeping both of those things in your fridge, just in case!

Looking back at my recipes for this year, I'm so disappointed in myself! I didn't make any candies, only cooked a few dinners and totally slacked off for many weeks at a time. I have big plans for next year and want to get myself back on trip. Bring the fun back to WITK!  Swing by on New Years day for Challenge 2015!

2013 Fan Favorites!

Another year is coming to an end and it's time to recap all of the fun we've had in 2013!  So many delicious things came out of the Wilde kitchen this year and kept me and the boyfriend well fed.  Surprisingly, this year the fan favorites even included a few savory recipes!

5. Banana Bread French Toast - This breakfast was crazy delicious.  Made during my unemployed summer, this was the perfect combination of breakfast and dessert.  I was so happy I made two servings. One for me and another for me the next day.  I should really put coconut on more things.

4. Nutella Thumbprints - I had a jar of Nutella staring at me for weeks before I decided to go ahead and make these treats.  The chopped hazelnuts took these cookies over the top. I had to send them to work with the boyfriend so I didn't sit on the couch and eat them all.

3. Funfetti Celebration Cake - This cake was so much fun to make and so pretty to look at! This year I fell in love with this method for making a layer cake after taking a few classes at Momofuku Milk.  I have so many ideas for layer cakes for 2014!

2. Chipotle Copy Cat Recipes - This was one of my favorite Restaurant Wars post from this year.  I especially loved developing the salad dressing recipe. While most people get salsa or guacamole with their chips, I always request the salad dressing. I've got to make it again soon!

1. Red Lobster Copy Cat Recipes - The main focus of this particular post was actually the cheddar bay biscuits, but I think people keep coming back for the chicken and pasta recipe.  I can't blame them, it was delicious too!

It's been a fun year, I can't wait to share with you all the exciting things I have planned for next year.  Bring on 2014!
