Top 10 Recipes of 2014

Top 10 Recipes of 2014 by The Sweet Chick

Well, if y'all are interested in knowing what Sweet Chick recipes were most popular in 2014, here they are.  And while nine out of ten recipes were sweet treats, the number one most viewed recipe was the Chicken Parmesan Wonton Cups I made during Superbowl season last January.  They were pretty awesome.  I think I am going to make some more for this year's party.

Orange Basil Scones

Orange Basil Scones by The Sweet Chick
My husband was in the mood for some scones.  I decided to make these Orange Basil Scones again.  I had made some before the holidays hit, as a trial run and they were a hit, so I made some more.  The combination of orange and basil gives a refreshing flavor to these scones.  The tangy flavor of the citrus goes well with the sweetness of the fresh basil.  They came out with the perfect amount of moistness, but still crumbly.  Oh, I do so love a good scone.

Butternut Squash Banana Muffins


Butternut Squash Banana Muffins by The Sweet Chick
I hope everyone had a delightful New Year.  Mine was pretty adventurous.  My husband, our two kids, and I drove up 14.5 hours to Connecticut to visit our families, then I took the kids on another 6.5 hour ride to Canada to see my grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Thankfully the kids were terrific on both trips and they loved seeing everyone.  The weather, on the other hand, was not so terrific.  I had forgotten how cold it gets up there.  But now I am back home, keeping warm with a cup of coffee and these Butternut Squash Banana Muffins.

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats

Christmas Rice Krispie Treats by The Sweet Chick

Having the kids home for winter vacation is always difficult.  They always seem to get bored, no matter how many toys, crafts, or games they have.  Cold, rainy days make it even harder because they can't go play outside.  So today I kept them busy for a little bit with some fun Rice Krispie Treats we shaped out of a Jello Jigglers mold.  They came out really cute, so I thought I'd share them with you.

Peppermint Eggnog Waffle Sticks

 Peppermint Eggnog Waffle Sticks by The Sweet Chick
I needed to bring in some treats for my daughter's Christmas party at school this week.  It seemed that all the other mom's were bringing in cookies, so I though I'd change things up a bit.  Waffle sticks are usually a hit with the kids.  Earlier this year I had made some Sugar Cookie Waffle Sticks that they loved, so why not some Peppermint Eggnog Waffles Sticks.  I even found some candy cane candy melt to dip them in.
