Year End Recipe Review 2014

This year I did something different with the blog, I gradually just shifted it to coffee/tea and recipes.  So for the year end review I picked some of my favorite recipes from each month to highlight, just in case you missed them. 

For the New Year I made this Chocolate Pound Cake with Mint Icing.

Made some lovely cupcakes for a little tea party.

Here I was just taking advantage of the mega amounts of strawberries we had in the backyard last year by creating The Humble Angel Food Cake Embellished.

And in May we still had strawberries, so I had to make a chocolate version naked cake in Fudge and Strawberry Cake.

I got so lucky the publishers found me last year and found out I will blog for free cookbooks!  I loved this cookbook in Beach House Baking and The Windswept Cherry Pie.

Time to have a little Christmas fun in Blackberry Scones for Christmas in July.

In August I played with my cupcakes to make them Beachy Cupcakes.

Oh, and then came fall, my favorite season, and time to bake apples in Rustic Apple Cider Pie.

In October I created my first ever recipe on my own from start to finish in Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake.

For November we had to try the Cranberry Upside Down Cake.

And for December I loved this Christmas morning idea in Cranberry and Brie Puff Pastry Swirls.

There you have the year end recipe review of my favorite recipes I have tried on the blog this year.  All of the recipes can be found on my Pinterest boards. Follow along for 2015 and we'll see what new recipes we can cook up.
