top 10 recipes 2014

What a delicious year it’s been! Wow, 2014, you’ve certainly been one for the record books! This year has been sort of incredible and I feel so blessed looking back.

January started out with a bang by me getting a trainer and getting into shape.

February, my husband got laid off from his job with a bunch of other employees.

March was the month he got offered his job back but enrolled into his Master’s Program FULL-TIME instead of part time. Goodbye savings. We take chances, incase you were wondering.

April, my blog was earning enough money to cover all our expenses {like, whoa!!!!!!} and our sweet Blake turned one!

By May, we were able to go to Miami for our Miamimoon {because we never got a honeymoon!}

Come June, I had over 100,000 likes on Facebook. Took me over 5 years but I did it!

July I was able to go to New Orleans and eat my body weight in beignets. This recipe also went viral and I got the most traffic to I’ve ever gotten EVER during this month.

August was a busy month and we sort of got sick of the same old same old so took a quick trip to Newport Oregon and enjoyed lots of fresh seafood!

September Brooke started Kindergarten! What a rockstar that girl is!!

October I was able to go to Northern Washington with Cascadian Farms and it was GORGEOUS!

November and December were just crazy and filled with holiday fun and lots of amazing recipes!

    I am so glad that I found you thru Welcome Home!
    I love the family feeling and your sharing of that. Your instructions are great as are your recipes. Lemon Crinkles are A#1!
    Going to try your pizza bread now that I broke in my new Kitchen Aide
    for Christmas baking and don’t feel so intimidated by it!
    I want to do a lot more bread making this year.
    Rustic recipes I can bake in cast iron Dutch oven.
    Hope you have a great 2015! Hope you find ways
    to keep going with hubby gone for so long!

    That chocolate frosting earned me the title of Baker in the family and those cake batter truffles had people following me around the hallways at work. Thank you Lauren! I love reading your blog and can’t wait to see what’s new this year!
