Seven Randoms: Reflections on Recipe Posts

Happy new year! The end of year/start of year vogue in the blog-world at present seems to be posts reflecting on statistics and popular posts on individual blogs in the past year. Part-way through the year, however, I unsubscribed from Google Analytics and so I’m limited to the stats Blogger provides, which do not give annual breakdowns. So, I thought I’d do my own version of a reflection, but base it on all recipe posts since the blog began. And here are the results…

1. Most popular recipe post: Condensed Milk Fudge

2. Second most popular recipe post: Chocolate Éclair Cookies

3. Recipe I’ve made the most in the past year: Vanilla Blondies and Hazelnut and Chocolate Chunk Brownies

7. Recipe I’d most like to make and share with good friends right now (if I had the time, inclination and ingredients to get baking this evening): Raspberry Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing

And based on the motley collection of photos here, I’m pleased to say that my photography appears to have improved (vastly) and perturbed to note a tendency towards sweet food – there is definite scope to work on savoury offerings in the coming year!
