My Favorite Recipes of 2019

I decided to do my favorites of 2019 a bit differently this year and choose just 1 recipe from each month as my favorite and boy was that a struggle some months!!  I didn't blog as much as I'd hoped in 2019, so here's to 2020! Cheers!


Can I tell you a secret?  I still make this on a daily basis!  It is my go to mid-afternoon caffeine hit!


These pot stickers with homemade wrappers were ridiculously time consuming, but the deliciousness increased because of the time spent on them (definitely).  I haven't remade these yet, but I still dream of them from time to time!


The BEST!  I think this may be a yearly treat for Hubs' birthday!  There is seriously nothing wrong with this recipe and everything right.  All of my favorite rolled into one freakishly rich dessert!


Another time consuming favorite that is worth every minute!  Store bought tortellini have nothing on these!


Hello Star Wars Fans everywhere!  This recipe is super easy and super festive!


Can I love this recipe for both it's simplicity and complexity?  This was my second attempt at sourdough and I love the challenge.  On the flip side, there's nothing better than a simple avocado toast with a little everything bagel mix sprinkled on top!


I love this ice cream!  It is inspired by an ice cream I tasted whilst on vacation last summer, coined "The Exhausted Parent".  Enough said.  This is a new favorite.


Star Wars inspired, yet simple and tasty enough to be enjoyed by all!  This is another remake, inspired by a non-Star Wars drink I had at a wedding!


Oh. Em. Gee.  Do you love biscuits & gravy?  This recipe is here to blow your mind, because it is even better!  This is your new favorite way to eat biscuits & gravy!


I make a lot of cookies in my house.  Enough to the point that my kids just assume that cookies will be there and will be delicious.  These cookies had them begging for more (literally begging!) . I made them three times in October & November!


Can a muffin be a cupcake?  Or a cupcake be a muffin?  Maybe a dessert muffin?  Whatever these are, they are fantastic and a must for fall!


This was a last minute recipe that turned out to be a total winner!  A savory version of cinnamon rolls, it's the perfect Christmas appetizer.

Honorable Mentions

You didn't really think I could only pick one a month, did you?

Another copy recipe, this one inspired by our vacation to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida.  Need I say more?  It's Harry Potter themed comfort food!

Are literally all of my favorites inspired by something else?  I had a version of this drink at a local bar and perfected it at home!  A keeper to say the least.  Plus dragon goblets!
