Best of 2014

The Best of 2014 is a countdown of the Top 10 Posts of 2014 on Sugar Dish Me. These are your favorites from ten to one. 

The Best of 2014 on Sugar Dish Me

It’s been a big year! 2014 has been one big long succession of milestones for us over here in the Sugar Dish family.

We bought one house on two acres and rescued three more dogs. We hosted a holiday and knocked down a wall, mowed a zillion tons of grass, went over the top with our Halloween decorations and costumes, and I cooked an insane amount of food.

This is a countdown of your favorites this year, from ten all the way down to one! I’ve noticed you guys are with me on a few trends: BREAKFAST RULES, we like healthy things that remind us of comfort foods, and we are very fond of blueberries. Check it out.


Mini Rainbow Fruit Tacos with Cream Cheese Dip

Mini Fruit Tacos

These fun tiny treats are filled with a fluffy cream cheese and a rainbow of fresh fruit. Cinnamon sugar tortillas give some sweet crisp crunch.



Breakfast Bubble Up Recipe (Christmas Morning Casserole)

Christmas Morning Casserole

I’m amazed that this recipe made the list at all because I actually just shared it on December 17th. It made it to number nine in just over 10 days! That no doubt puts it in the Best Of category. It’s super simple to make and would be good on any morning, not just Christmas.


Banana Bread with Pumpkin

Healthy Pumpkin Banana Bread

This is one of those healthy comfort food things. It’s based on the Healthy Peach Banana Bread Recipe that I wrote for my friends at Food Fanatic. This bread clocks in at less that 90 calories per serving which means I will be snacking on this happily through 2015.


Crispy Orange Chicken Bowls


 Crispy Orange Chicken Quinoa Bowls

I will eat this over take out any day of the week. The secret is the orange sauce. Orange sauce!!! I’m telling you — if you have not tried these bowls of happy yet, you need to put them on your to-do list asap.


Muffins made with Leftover Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potato Muffins with Pecan Streusel

These muffins. Ohhhmahgahhh. They are fluffy and perfectly spiced with just the right amount of buttery streusel pecan crunch. Sweet potatoes for breakfast are happy.


Philly Steak and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


Philly Steak and Grilled Cheese

Thinly sliced steak, onions, bell peppers, and some outta-this-world cheese sauce I made with Cabot’s Horseradish Cheddar. This is the best thing that ever happened to grilled cheese.


Pie Bite Ice Cream Topping

Blueberry Pie Bites

The easiest recipe everrr, but so much flavor packed is into these tiny little bites. Blueberry Pie Bites are such a fun way to enjoy fresh blueberries. Pie in moderation means you can have like 10.


Easy Homemade Pancake Mix - just add milk plus an egg. Breakfast in 7 minutes or less!

Homemade Fluffy Pancake Mix 

Oh pancakes, how I love thee. This recipe is for a super simple mix that you can keep on hand. Add milk and an egg and you will have the biggest, fattest, fluffiest pancakes ever. You can even add fruit (read: blueberries).


Homemade Granola Bars with Chocolate


The Best Dang Granola Bars Ever {Ever.}

They are. I mean it. I used to sell these here locally and they seriously disappeared less than 5 minutes after the chocolate set up. My love for these granola bars is eternal. Maybe one day I’ll have a food truck and I can peddle them on the street.


Oven Fried Buffalo Chicken


Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

The epitome of healthy and delicious. These have been pinned over a hundred thousand times in just the last couple of months. They are so popular that they dethroned Homemade Fresh Vegetable Soup as the top recipe on Sugar Dish Me for two years running.  And for good reason. These are easy to prepare, totally low calorie and high protein, but it kinda tastes like you are eating the best sort of junk food. This recipe is an all-around win.

Thanks for being a part of this totally terrific year!
