Best of 2014 – My Top-14 Recipes of the Year

Happy New Year everyone!

To celebrate the end of my first year as a food blogger, I looked back at the posts I published and picked my own top 14 recipes. Throughout the year, I posted over 90 of them so I hope this selection of some personal favorites makes your job easier when browsing at the recipe index. To be honest, food blogging’s been much more challenging and time consuming than I thought it would be, but oh so satisfying! Scrolling through my recipes, I realize that this initially small project of mine turned into something much bigger than I expected. I am really proud of my work, which I can now call my favorite hobby and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. So without further ado… I present Stovetop Story‘s 2014, top-14 recipes (in no particular order)! Here’s to another great year!

  1. Wow! All of these look delicious! Too bad I just decided to diet from today in a bid to lose some holiday weight and now you have me tempted 😛

  2. Wow your food looks amazing and your photographs! What camera do you use if you don’t mind me asking, do you use special lighting?
