Countdown to 2016: Most Popular

countdownto2016We’re polishing off the year with the five best recipes of 2015. This blogging countdown party is hosted by Sarah at Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. Scoot on over to her page to see more round-up recipes.

I was anxiously awaiting my email from WordPress giving me my stats for the year. And the results are in!

I have enjoyed blogging in 2015, and 2016 already has a lot of ideas in the works. Here’s to hoping I can keep up with Sew You Think You Can Cook as much as I want to with two boys under two.

2015 stats

Sew You Think You Can Cook was viewed 37,000 times – that’s 9,000 more times than last year! I’m sure there are sophisticated bloggers who achieve those numbers in as little as a month, but I’m happy to see that my little corner of the internet is reaching out to a few people. My most popular referrer this year was Foodgawker, which means my photography skills have improved since 2014! Quite exciting. Facebook has been a big help this year, too. In 2015 my Facebook page reached almost 580 followers; if you’re one of them I thank you – keep clicking and keep sharing!

My busiest day of the year was June 5th – my Salmon in Puff Pastry was to blame. It’s one of my favorite recipes: less than 5 ingredients and beautifully impressive.

One of the top five most popular posts was actually from 2013 – it’s crazy to see how some of my very first recipes had staying power. (My Key Lime Pie is holding steady at number 1.)

And now for the top five recipes of 2015, these are in ranking order:

Whiskey Bacon Baked Beans

Lemon Buttermilk Bundt with Tart Lemon Glaze

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Salmon in Puff Pastry

Cracked Sugar Cookies

  1. I have a weird thing with baked beans. I will legit get a can for my lunch every once in a while because I love them so much. Homemade ones are good too, but I always make a lot and then no one but me really eats them. Will be saving your recipe to try 😀
