raisin and fig top ten

Oh what the heck, everyone else is doing it!

In case you joined us later in the year {we officially launched March 1} you may have missed some of the most popular posts. And this isn’t MY list, it’s YOURS, based on the recipes that you viewed and shared the most.

Thanks to all of you who gave great feedback and graciously pointed out things that needed to be clarified or corrected. And a big, BIG thanks to all of you who introduced others to Raisin & Fig.

If you’re here, you love to enjoy great food with great people – I wish I could get all of us together for a big ol’ party! Maybe we’d serve some of your favorites from our Top Ten Blog Posts 2013…

#10 Wow, if Edna Holmgren Walker only knew when she submitted her Magic Marshmallow Puffs recipe to the Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1969 that it would continue to be so popular 45 years later…

#9 You love the decadent stuff, don’t you? There’s a reason Husband calls Creme Brulee French Toast “The Miracle.”

#8 If ever there was a recipe that was super versatile, easy, healthy and SO beautiful, Grilled Vegetables top the list.

#7 Easy to pull together, wonderful for company, if you’ve not made this Best Ever Chicken Piccata, give it a try.

#6 One of my personal faves – maybe because I’m missing the mountains and the ranch right now – Cowgirl Turkey Burgers!

#5  I’d make this Pad Thai once a week if I could get away with it.

#4  I get so many requests to make Mini Reuben Sandwiches {mostly from guys} that I always have a batch in the freezer.

#3 If you’re trying to cut back on wheat and pasta, a great stand-in is yummy Spaghetti Squash. Here it’s tossed simply with Parmesan and fresh herbs, but it’s equally good with tomato sauce and meatballs!

#2 Who doesn’t love Mac n’ Cheese? And who doesn’t feel guilty indulging in it? This recipe let you sneak in healthy vegetables and cut down on fat without compromising on flavor.

#1 Wait, what? Really? The fact that you loved Roasted Cauliflower just goes to show that sometimes simple is best.

    It all looks so yummy but I think I’ll try the roasted veggies and cauliflower! It’s been a month of ‘too much of a good thing!’. Happy New Year!
