Our Readers' 14 Favorite Recipes Of 2014 (1)

Is anyone else as obsessed as I am with end-of-the-year “best of” lists?!

From best books, tobest movies, to best dressed, to best inventions, to best apps, to best viral videos, to best beauty trends, even to best new species, there’s nothing likea good ol’ list to wrap up the year. And I want to read themall. :)

Of course,as is our tradition here on the blog, we’re also chiming in withtwo “best of” lists for the year — our readers’14 Favorite Recipes of 2014, which will be followed tomorrow bymy 14 Favorite Recipes of 2014. We dished up about 180 new recipes this past year, so there was lots of deliciousness to choose from. But statistically, a few new recipes definitely pulled ahead of the pack. So if you are looking for some tried-and-true recommendations for 2015, this list would be a fantasticplace to begin.

And as always, I can’t thank each of you enough for your tremendous support this past year. This blog quite literally would not be possible without you, and I am beyondthankful for each of you who take a moment to visit the site, try some recipes, and share them with those you love. You are the best —the best! —and I am so deeply thankful for each of you.

Without further ado, here are your favorites from 2014!

Slow Cooker Chili– “I have been making the same chili recipe for years. This time I decided to shake things up a bit and try this recipe.
