Top 5 Recipes of 2014

2014 was a huge year of personal growth for me. A long with exploring the Pacific Northwest I also got out a little more (introverts unite!) and met a few new friends a long the way. It was also my last year in my 20's. ( The decision to blog again and focus on baking was an easy one for me and it has rewarded me greatly.

I simply love to bake. It relaxes me and takes my mind off of the mundane things of life. It puts me in a happy place. Most importantly, baking helped me to cope with a very hard time in my life when my Dad passed away in 2011.

I have also always been a photography lover and writing was my first love. Blogging isn't a chore to me. It is simply something that I enjoy and love.

You, my readers and blogger buddies, have made my 2014 even more special. Each time I see I have a new comment I get butterflies and I enjoy interacting with you on a personal level. I look forward to all of the opportunities, fun things, and new friends blogging will bring me in 2015. Heres to the new year!

Here are the top 5 Savor The Baking recipes of 2014.

5. Sour Cream Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze

This sour cream pound cake with lemon glaze is the definition of Southern living. The cake is moist and the lemon glaze adds a little kick. 

These cinnamon roll cupcakes with white frosting are great for any occasion. From bridal showers to baby showers guests will be sure to love them. The white frosting gives just enough sweetness to compliment the cinnamon roll flavor of the cupcakes.

3. Baked Funfetti Donuts

This was one of my favorite recipes of the year. These baked donuts taste great with homemade glaze. I love how bright and colorful they are with the sprinkles.

Readers responded well to this milkshake. It has got to be one of my favorite milkshakes I have ever made. It is full of Oreo cookies and is rich in flavor. 

1. Christmas Sugar Cookies 

The most loved recipe of 2014  are these Christmas sugar cookies. I don't know if it has something to do with the simplicity of a sugar cookie or if those sprinkles have magic, but you all loved this recipe. 

I hope you all have a safe New Year's Eve and a great start to 2015. The year is sure to be full of good things in store and more sweet treats from me. Cheers!
