Top 10 Blog Posts and Recipes from 2020

 Happy New Year!!! With 2021 upon us, I wanted to look back on how much my blog has grown over the last six months. Here are the top 10 most popular blog posts and recipes from 2020.

How was your New Years Eve? Ours was very quiet and relaxing. We ordered in some pizza, played board games while watching New Year's Rockin' Eve on TV, waiting for the ball to drop. It was nice to have the kids spend the evening with us. I've never been one to go all out for New Year's, but it felt very strange this year. Especially seeing the artists perform in front of tiny groups, wearing masks. I truly hope 2021 brings us more normalcy and safety in regards to health around the world.

I have only been blogging for 6 months so far, but every day I am delighted to see my little blog grow. I am gaining more readers, and making wonderful blogging and Instagram friends. The support from these groups has helped me slowly start reaching a bigger audience. I am grateful for all the support I've received and to all of you who take the time to come read my posts and try my recipes. You have helped make the end of 2020 less frustrating and have brought positivity to my year.

I wanted to look back on the last 6 months and collect 10 of the most popular posts. I have enjoyed sharing all these delicious recipes with you. Recipes that my family loves, recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, and recipes that I've created by following my cravings at times. It always surprises me to see what recipes people gravitate to.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
