It’s the end of an eventful year here at 101 Cooking For Two. The main non-food highlights are continued growth with now over 6 million page views, but the biggie is the move to WordPress. This has been monopolizing most of my blogging time for months ( and for several more months).
So here we go. Somewhat influenced by popularity but really just my choices for the top ten of the year. I eliminated several repeat recipes from previous years, which would have made the cut ( The Best Grilled Pork Tenderloin – Memphis Style and Ultra Simple Crock Pot White Chicken Chili ). I have looked at this for a week and keep changing but here is the final list in reverse order.
#10 Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes
A great old fashion taste in a classic recipe.
#9 Grilled Blackened Tilapia
This started at #4 originally and fell but there is no way it was falling off the top ten. A great spicy grilled fish that is also good for you. So easy and fast.
#8 Crock Pot Baked Ziti
I’m not sure how this is here but I really REALLY liked it. Crock pot easy really good Italian.
#7 Healthier Low Fat Carrot Cake
The only thing not great about most carrot cake is the fat. So this is a great carrot cake.
#6 Oven Pulled Pork from Pork Butt
I know I should grill my pork butt, but this is so good and easy. No playing with grill temperatures and great taste and moisture.
#5 Old Fashion Cheesy Potato Casserole
An old family favorite for years. Just wonderful and goes with anything for company or every day.
#4 How to Grill a T-bone or Porterhouse Steak – A Tutorial
Let’s get our steaks done right. A never fail method that we just did again tonight.
#3 Parmesan Garlic Baked Potatoes
I called this “your new favorite side dish,” and it will be.
#2 Easy Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
A great home-made cheese cake that will impress anyone that tastes it. OK, this should be number one but see the explanation below.
#1 Uncooked Macaroni Crock Pot Mac and Cheese
I will call this the “Peoples Choice” I would have made it top ten, but this recipe exploded out of the gate and has kept going. You get creamy Mac and Cheese with none of the unknown nasty chemicals.
That’s it for now.
Have a great 2014.
