The top 10 most popular (i.e. most viewed) posts on Persnickety Plates in 2014!
Persnickety Plates Top 10 Most Popular Posts of 2014Good morning! I can’t believe I’m already writing this post – I feel like I just wrote 2013‘s.

It really has been a great year. Not much tops having a baby.

As far as the blog goes, it’s also been a good year, though quieter than I hoped. I only posted 61 times, which is about half of what I did in 2013, but again, that new, cute, super needy baby has something to do with that. I think I’m getting a better handle on a work/home/blog life balance. I hope. This blog has turned into more than just a hobby for me and I really enjoy sharing my food and life with you all.

Some blog highlights:

I migrated from Blogger to WordPress which has been a big learning experience for me. One that continues daily.

Buffalo Cauliflower is still going strong, although losing steam. I lost my pin counts when I moved platforms, but before I switched, it had been pinned over 379,000 times.

I added over 2,000 new Facebook friends.

I opened up my Instagram to the public (for a peek behind the blog) and now have over 500 friends.

I got to work with some great brands like KizmosSimply Potatoes, Pompeian, and Happy Family, to name a few.

Ok, on to the most popular posts of 2014. These are the most clicked posts over the past year.
Two things I learned – I need to retake a lot of these pictures and you guys love slow cooker meals. Noted.

Coming in at #10 are these Simple Garlic Knots. They were so good.

#9 is the Cannoli Poke Cake that I made for Mother’s Day and only took a cell phone pic of
{note for 2015: remake this cake and take better pictures}

#8 is Slow Cooker Honey Bourbon Chicken. I get asked all the time why there’s not actually any bourbon in this recipe and the answer is, it’s named after Bourbon Street. Add bourbon if it makes you happy! Slow Cooker Honey Bourbon Chicken | Persnickety Plates
#7 goes to Slow Cooker Creamy Ranch Pork Chops. Another old recipe that deserves a much better picture.

#6 most popular was Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken. You guys are killing me with these old, crappy pictures, but they taste great!

#4 is another slow cooker meal – I made this Chicken Alfredo right before Baby Girl arrived so that’s what I associate it with.
