For those of you who like the food articles I feel like I owe you
an apology because there really weren’t too many in 2021!
One of my goals for 2022 is to actually get caught up on
all the recipes I have already made so hopefully that means
you will have more to look forward to this year. However, until
then here is a look back on my top 10 favorite recipes
(in no particular order) of 2021! Did you have a favorite
recipe I posted? Or even a new favorite you found somewhere
else? Let me know in the comments!
Mini Apple Pie Christmas Trees
I was pretty dang proud of these little Christmas trees so
they definitely had to make the list! Plus…pie. Need I say more? Lol
Mom’s Banana Muffins
These are the absolute best banana muffins that I have ever had. *sigh*
Making these cinnamon rolls brought back the times when
I would help my mom make hers in our little farmhouse
kitchen which automatically made it a contender. Add in the
fact that they were abso-freakin-lutely delicious and we had a winner.
This definitely wasn’t the best tasting dish I have
concocted, but making it and eating it along with
Buddy the Elf was a lot of fun.
Stovetop Mashed Potatoes
The first time I tried these mashed potatoes I remember
literally closing my eyes because they were so creamy and amazing.
I would have to say that taste wise this is the dish that
surprised me most this year. I honestly went into the dish
thinking that I was going to hate it, but it turned out to actually
be pretty good. Maybe I don’t hate vegetables as much as I thought I did. Lol
Every time I look at the picture of this meal I hear my
stomach growl and my mouth starts to water. Absolutely
delicious and saves you a trip to Olive Garden!
Shutting down the KFC in my town was quite the blow so
making my own fried chicken at home that wasn’t too far from
the Colonel’s own really helped soften it a little.
Giant Chocolate Layer Cake
Giant. Chocolate. Cake. I rest my case.
New York Style Cheese Pizza
It is hard to go wrong with pizza! Truthfully I don’t make my
own pizza very often (I like to stick with the frozen Red Baron
pizzas), but this one turned out so good I have
definitely considered it more often.
