Today, I’m sharing some of my most popular posts this year in honor of my Second Blog Anniversary! These are your favorites along with mine.
Second Blog Anniversary
My first post went live on March 14, 2010. I had absolutely NO idea what I was doing. My second post featured two sentences and a photo lifted from Cook’s Illustrated (which has since been updated)…thank goodness, not a soul was reading. For the next few months, I snapped photos with my flash and the steadiest hands I could muster and started sharing my favorite recipes. Who knew this little venture would be the source of so much joy and satisfaction as well as lasting friendships?
Through French Fridays with Dorie, Tuesdays with Dorie, Daring Bakers, Foodbuzz, The Secret Recipe Club, two Improv Challenges, Sunday Supper, Twelve Loaves, and Chocolate Party, I’ve met the nicest folks from across the globe. I want to thank each and every one of you who visits my little ol’ blog whether daily or just a couple of times a year. THANK YOU!!! I’m happy to be celebrating another Blog Anniversary!

For those of you who may have missed these, here are a few of my most popular and personal favorite posts over the past year. Perfect for any occasions and to celebrate my blog anniversary:
Not a true chocolate brownie, but a dense red velvet base topped with an amazing white chocolate frosting!
With all the delicious components of a Twix Candy Bar, this homemade version with shortbread, caramel, and chocolate is even better!!
With a layer of applesauce topped with a swirl of apples in a buttery crust, this apple tart is tres bien!!!
I’ve been making versions of these cheesecake filled strawberries for decades! Perfect for dessert buffets or a sweet appetizer.
I made this again for my book club (10 years after the first time I served this to them), and it was still a major hit!
These are super impressive and delicious! Plus they look harder to make than they really are.
A combo of two of my favorite indulgences, cheesecake, and Rolo candies!
I’m a popcorn addict and adding white chocolate was genius!!
These mint cheesecake bars are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, but delicious any time of the year!
A braided loaf is always impressive! And when it’s filled with sweetened cream cheese, it’s also incredibly delicious!
