Most Popular Recipes of 2014

Happy New Year's Eve!

Yes, friends, I'm bringing you another "Best of 2014" post. To be honest, I'm a little tired of these myself, but I also think the impulse to look back and reflect on the past year is a good one--to think about what went well, what went not so well, and how we felt. 

After feeling some wanderlust in 2013, I'm incredibly thankful for my opportunities to travel in 2014. I was lucky enough to be able to travel to FloridaPanama, D.C., Texas, and Italy

2014 was also personally difficult in a lot of ways. I experienced more rejection than I ever have before, which brought a lot of self doubt and reevaluation of my life goals. 

I love the idea of a fresh start, and that's how I'm approaching 2015--More optimism, courage, kindness, connection, and drinking wine with friends. Less fear, whining, anxiety, doubt, and social media. 

Thank you for your support of Stew or a Story.  As always, it's been an important outlet for me, and I hope you've found some good things to eat. Here are your favorite recipes of 2014:

crockpot cheerwine barbecue chicken

pumpkin baked oatmeal with crunchy almond topping

stupid easy gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

tacos with crispy chickpeas, avocado slaw & feta

cocoa cinnamon roasted almonds

kale and potato soup with spicy turkey meatballs

multi-grain olive braid bread

Wishing you lots of love, luck & laughter in 2015!
