top 10 most popular recipes of 2014

2014, you were a MADHOUSE.

From polar vortexes to wedding planning mania to more mouse infestations than I care to remember to WEDDING WEDDING WEDDING, I think this was quite possibly the most insane year in Eats Well With Others history yet.

And I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

This was also the first year in FOREVER that sweet thangs didn’t dominate the past year’s Top 10. We have totally grown as people. I love it.

So without further adieu, thank you so much for following along with me on this crazy food-filled journey. It wouldn’t be quite as much fun without you guys, and I am grateful for every second you spend here with me – reading, commenting, cooking along. Let’s make 2015 the most delicious year yet, shall we?

    Curious. How do you know which dishes are more popular than others? The amount of comments? Likes? Tweets?

    I think I missed the hot and sour soup and what a brilliant idea – this is a guilty pleasure dish for me. I know it is not so good for me and yet the taste is amazing… but if I were to make it from scratch and leave off the msg and cornstarch, well then it’d be healthy AND a treat. Can’t ask for more than that.

  20. sandra says:

    and wait, you’ve got two more days of posts. What if one of those ends up being your absolute most popular dish ever in all history of time? Then what? (sorry I am a little punch happy at work with nothing to do…)

  21. I loved reading along your 2014 adventures! What a fun year! And I want a giant square of that Irish cream brownie right now.

  22. I love all of these, Joanne! It’s been a great year!

  23. I am drooling at that caramel peanut pie!

  24. I love your blog and your spunk, Joanne. Grateful to have you in my virtual life… 😉 I just can’t pick among these 10 recipes – I want to try them all!

  25. Yep, these all deserve to be in here! But then so do all of your recipes – it’s lucky there are stats to help reach the top 10 conclusions 🙂

  26. Zainab says:

    That thai curry deserves three spots in this round up. Was so so good! What a delicious year it was!! I for one is looking to grow more with you in 2015!! (Hello I am not without kale ever in fridge now, thanks to u!!)

  27. Oh, delicious and inspiration – Joanne – thanks and look forward to what you are going to share next year. Happy New Year to you and The Boy:)

  28. Louanne says:

    Ok, so the husband has been in the hospital, ICU, with septicemia since 12/26. Just moved into regular room today. Yes, sounds awful, and it has been, but the bright side? He ate broccoli and squash and sweet potato and he liked them! A confirmed veg-hater has now joined the ranks of the enlightened. Can’t wait to try out the hot and sour soup.
