The Yummi Top 10 Recipes of 2014

What a whirlwind year 2014 has been! You’ve all done some major drooling over my recipes this year, and for that, I thank you! These are the yummi top 10 recipes of 2014!

It was really insightful for me to dig into the data to pull up the top 10 recipes of 2014.  I thought I would see a trend of some sort. You know, more sugary sweets, or a trend towards the healthier, low carb recipes of the year.

Truth is, there wasn’t a single common thread to be found.  It looks like you are all just food lovers in general, and very much like me… you enjoy a little indulgence, in moderation, along with your healthy foods.

So take a look at the list and Pin the recipes so you can pull them again in 2015!
