Top 5s of 2014

I am not going to lie, I am weirdly excited about putting together these lists. Makes me feel all fancy like you know 🙂

It also makes me happy when I take a look back at the year that was and see all that love in one place. Thank you so much for popping by here when you do and cooking from my lil ol blog. Your visits, messages and emails keep me going (true story).

Even though I know the Beef Biryani and Anday Aalu ka Salan are fan faves so to speak for these round ups I am sticking to recipes posted in 2014. Hope you enjoy the year that was as much as I did!

First…*drumroll please* your top 5 from the recipes published in 2014…

    I can see why these were some top posts. They all look pretty fabulous! I think I’d pick your five though, I have a weakness for chicken and rice aka, biryani 🙂

      great minds coffee and crumpets, great minds 😉
      the chicken and rice is a copycat of the halal cart guys in nyc. It is (dare I say it out loud?) even more delicious than most biryanis. the harissa is killer spicy, I am going to try the ottolenghi recipe soon and if it works I will add it on there

    I love these roundups! It’s so interesting to see what posts are most popular amongst readers.
    It’s funny because I’ve made a few of your fan favorites, and have the others pinned 🙂
    I NEED to make the chicken and rice soon! I loveeee the New York version, and it would be awesome to recreate it at home 🙂
