Hi friends! It was a pretty delicious year in my kitchen. I love creating healthy, accessible recipes that taste good. Thank you for letting me share my passion with you for another year. That’s what it’s all about, right? With the end of 2014 fast approaching, I thought I’d take a few minutes to share the top recipes published on Happy Healthy Mama this year, as judged by pageviews. Numbers talk, people. Here’s what you loved this year.
The ultimate quick, healthy lunch. I’m so glad this one made the list. You’ve all confirmed I’m not crazy even though sometimes my husband looks at me like I am with some of the things I come up with.
#3 Sunset SmoothieLook at this smoothie making it’s way to the top in just a few short months! It’s as pretty as it is delicious.
These ever-popular blender muffins took the top spot this year. They are definitely on a regular rotation here so I totally get why they are #1. We all love low ingredient, quick recipes, that the whole family loves.
I learned a lot from putting this list together. Many of these recipes are recent recipes, posted in just the last few months, yet they racked up the pageviews in a short time. They also happen to be some of my best photographs of the year. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. I’ve worked really hard on my photography lately and I’m astonished at how that has translated to increased traffic. My recipes aren’t necessarily better than they were last year, but the photographs are. The takeaway: great recipes are important, but if you want your recipes to get attention they have to be beautifully photographed, too.
So what do you think about my Top 10? Did you try any recipes from Happy Healthy Mama this year? Let me know which ones are on your Top 10 list this year!
