Top Ten Recipes of 2012 | | #recipes #2012 #newyear
Everyone says it and I must repeat it – time flies!

2013?! What? Really!?!

I am stuck somewhere between 1998 and 2002:

  • I’m still bumpin’ to Enrique Iglesias’s Bailamos. 
  • I often click over to check my MySpace profile.
  • I’m still sippin’ on gin and juice. Oh, wait, that was before 1998.

And, just for clarification, I don’t care what year that birth certificate says, I am 23.

Sigh… Have a drink. It’s on me.

The title of this post should probably read The Top Ten of the last quarter of 2012 because I returned to my blog sometime in August after almost a year-long absence, and I have been posting regularly ever since.

I only recently sat down to look at these stats and found out that you fine people out there really like brownies! And cheese, and soups, and the slow cooker… I think that tells me in what direction I should go with this blog; I should definitely keep Savory Sundays, I need to amp up my chocolate intake, and I should add feta cheese to everything. And Pomegranate Mimosas to go with it all. ;-D


These are my most viewed recipes of 2012, starting with Number 10 and working our way down to Number 1:

    Happy New Year Kate! I made pomosas last year – they are fantastic! :) Here’s to a great 2013. Time does certainly fly.

    A pomegranate mimosa is my kind of drink, just beautiful! Happy New Year, Kate! :)

    I absolutely can not pick just one of these delicious dishes, although I must agree with you that, yes, feta pretty much does go with everything. So glad you came back to blogging after your hiatus & I wish you a most marvelous New Year :-)

    May I have several servings from each recipe, please? I’ll need something to enjoy whilst updating my MySpace background. (So glad I’m not the only one!) ;)

    Happy New Year, Kate!!

    Happy New Year! I totally agree with you… I’m still somewhere in the mid 90’s myself. I’m still “jamm’in” to the 80’s… I don’t even know what they play these days. Yes… I am officially an old fart. :) My husband tries to stay more current and “hip” when it comes to music and I’m always saying… “turn that off”.

    Loved your year of food… your gorgeous photography and getting to know you. I’ll raise a glass of Pomegranate Mimosa to you and say “Happy New Year!”

    Have a blessed year my friend. :)
