My Favorite Recipes of 2014

Yesterday, I shared the recipes that were most popular with readers in 2014. Today I’m highlighting some of my favorites. I would highly recommend all of these recipes! They’re some of the best things to come out of my kitchen this year.

GarlicHerbCheddarFondue

Garlic Herb Cheddar Fondue

I love a good fondue. We really love this Golden Pizza Fondue, so I don’t do much experimenting with other cheeses, but this one was a huge hit.

EggplantParmBurgers

Eggplant Parm Burgers

These were my favorite meatless meal of the year and officially became my go-to meatless burger.

PeanutButterFudgePie

Peanut Butter Fudge Pie

This was on my to-make list for so long it’s shameful. I’m always a sucker for chocolate/peanut butter desserts, but this one is particularly awesome.

ChipotleChickenKabobs

Chipotle Chicken Kabobs with Avocado Cream Sauce

These quick, easy kabobs were a go-to all summer. And I made the avocado cream sauce every time I could, even if it wasn’t for these. Such a fantastic combo!

FlankSteakPinwheels

Flank Steak Pinwheels

I was thrilled to track down this recipe and make these after a few year lapse. These are going to be a regular in our summer rotation. And looking at that picture is making me miss grilling weather!

TacoStuffedShells

Taco Stuffed Shells

This is another dish I’ve made several times and finally got around to blogging. I’m glad I finally shared these, because I really do love them and they make a great freezer meal.

GrilledSrirachaBroccoli

Grilled Sriracha Broccoli

Oh, summer, how I miss you! These were part of my ongoing quest to switch up our side dishes and they were so, so good.

GreenBeanFries

Baked Green Bean Fries

Another new side dish – this one first appeared when we had an abundance of green beans in the garden, but I keep making them because they’re so addictive.

HoneyChipotleChickenTenders

Honey Chipotle Chicken Tenders

Chicken tenders are a comfort food for me and this sweet-and-spicy version was absolutely awesome.

Brownies

Brownies

These were amazing, and quite possibly my favorite dessert of the year. I’m thrilled to have a go-to recipe!

Now, that we’ve looked back, some looking forward: What will Kate’s Recipe Box look like in 2015? Mostly the same, I think.

In 2014, I ended up focusing a lot on meals that were quick, could be made in the slow cooker or were freezer-friendly. Now that we’ve sort of settled into life with a baby, these are dominating our meal plans. Of course, special meals and treats will always find their way in, too!

I’m also going to work on a mini cooking bucket list for the year. I know trying to make homemade bagels will be on it – I’m still debating what other new things I want to tackle.

Do you have any cooking goals or resolutions for 2015?
