It's that time of year when we look back and explore the most favorite posts from 2020. It's also just a great time to say goodbye to 2020. I'm pretty sure if I took a poll, 99% of people would say that they are done and over 2020.
So let's end the year on a positive note and take a minute to reminisce back on the top posts of 2020!
While most of you go crazy with our dog posts, my Mom's birthday present that in her words 'was only supposed to take a couple of hours to make' but really ended up taking us all day to make turned out pretty good. Many of you have reached out to say that you loved making a catio out of IKEA bookshelves too or got some inspiration after seeing this idea. We are so glad!
This is the first time since the divorce and death of my ex husband that I've really talked about it out loud. It was tough. I had had some friends and others reach out with questions about my experience after going through something similar. Even though divorce and then death is a little more uncommon of something to go through, I found it was becoming more common. This was waaaay outside of my comfort zone. And I still am not ready to talk about everything as it's still very painful, but I'm hopeful it was able to help others out there who may be going through the same thing.
On a lighter note, our twice baked chocolate chip cookie recipe went crazy on the website this year. A cookie on the menu of a restaurant we went to one date night inspired me to make our own at home version. These twice baked chocolate chip cookies taste like biscotti in a way...but also not. You'll have to try them and decide if you agree!
Quarantine and COVID snuck their way into a few posts this year. We tried to tackle the positive aspect of COVID and came up with some great socially distanced party and neighborhood ideas.
Zupas is a cafe here in Utah that has some amazing soups, sandwiches and salads. This Zupas garden chowder has been a favorite of ours for years and I'm so glad that some great dairy free alternatives have come out recently to make it even more amazing tasting now that I have food allergies !
Naturally sweetened brownies have been extremely popular on our website. There are two that always seem to be at the top of the list:
Trader Joes came out with a corn cookie mix this year that became super popular. We made a knockoff of the cookies and we also found a way to make the cookie mix allergy friendly too!
I knew a dog recipe would sneak it's way onto the website and our apple pumpkin dog biscuits made the list! We hope you and your pampered pooches are enjoying making and eating these!
This recipe has been the most popular recipe on our website for several years now. It's one of our family favorites and perfect for weekend nights!
These have been super popular on our website for several years now. The cookies taste delicious and just like the bakery favorite!
We wish you and your family a very safe, happy and healthy new year!
