The Top Ten Best New Recipes of 2014 from Kalyn’s Kitchen (and honorable mentions)

Here are my Top Ten Best New Recipes of 2014 (and a few honorable mentions!)

The Top Ten Best New Recipes of 2014 from Kalyn's Kitchen (and honorable mentions) found on KalynsKitchen.com

One thing I love about late December is the way food bloggers spotlight their favorite recipes of the year.   And since I’m pretty picky about what recipes appear on Kalyn’s Kitchen, every year I have a hard time narrowing down my picks to just ten recipes.  This year after I looked through the monthly archives and made a secret Pinterest board for recipes I thought were really noteworthy, I had nearly 40 recipes pinned!  Then I had a flash of inspiration and decided to give individual awards by category, with a couple of honorable mentions for the category as well.  Kind of like my own little Academy Awards for recipes!

Spotlighting categories gave me a chance to reflect on the kinds of recipes that were on my radar this year, and I had fun making the final picks.  (And I freely confess there is nothing scientific about these choices, so if you had a favorite recipe from 2014 that I missed, feel free to give your own award for it in the comments!)  And you can check after this year’s picks if you’d like to see favorite recipe lists from years gone by.
