With a Bow

As the year winds down, I wanted to take the time to reflect back on the past year here at Baking In A Tornado. There have been some fun, some serious, some yummy and some memorable moments in my first full year blogging. I’ve gone back through the year and compiled a few lists; top ten posts by page views, my top five favorite humorous posts and my favorite more serious posts.

So let’s wrap this year up, with a bow!

The actual #7 by page views was a compilation of previously posted recipes, both mine and those of some contributing friends, called Happy Virtual Thanksgiving. Since it wasn’t an original piece, I’ll give another #7:

#7 as an original post was from last June. It’s called Antivite and is about an actual trend, sending people an official “DON’T save the date”. It included a recipe for Choc-Oat Chip Cheesecake Bars.
