Top 10 Recipes of 2013

Wow.  I find it so hard to believe another year is almost behind us!  This past year was a particularly busy one for me and my family and 2014 promises much of the same!

So in the spirit of countdowns and since everyone seems to have their "Top Ten" posts's mine, in no particular order!

With only 3 ingredients and no kneading, this bread truly is The Easiest Bread You Will Ever Make!
I was so happy when I stumbled upon this recipe earlier this year.  If you haven't made this one yet, what are you waiting for?  

Hello Dolly Bars are so easy to make.  Nope...not diet friendly, but a great recipe non-the-less.  

Marinated Grilled Shrimp Skewers are healthy and delicious.  It doesn't surprise me that it makes the 10 most popular list!  

This Easy Homestyle Meatloaf  is so good!  Moist and tender.  Try subbing out the bread for saltine cracker crumbs for a tasty variation! 

 Turkey Sausage and Spinach Lasagna is lower in calories and absolutely delicious.  If you haven't given this one a try yet, put it on your list!

Sweet Orange Cupcakes are citrus-y and yummy.  When the cold winter days start to get to you, bake up a batch of these lovely "sunny" cupcakes to cheer you up and remind you that spring isn't all that far off! 

 Originally an Allrecipes Ambassador assignment for Kraft®, Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole turned out to be a hit with my family and with all of you as well!  You don't need to wait until you have Thanksgiving leftovers to make this one either thanks to Kraft products!  Sub chicken for the turkey and the casserole is still delicious!

Lighter Classic Patty Melt is a delicious lower calorie version of the Classic Patty Melt.  It's still a little high in calories, but much less than you would get if you ordered it at your favorite bar and grill and every bit as delicious. 

Lightened Up Italian Turkey Sausage Skillet has become a "go-to" meal in my house!  It's so easy and you only dirty one pan! Winning!!

Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies are so good.  Just the right amount of peppermint!

Did one of your favorite recipes make the list?

I wish each and everyone one of you a wonderful New Year filled with happiness and good health!!

HAPPY 2014!!!!
