Favorite Recipes of 2014

IMG_7270On a recent trip to San Juan Island I spent much of the time on the ferry ride reading through my neglected pile of recipe books, newspaper food sections and food magazines. I am one of those people who tirelessly spend long chunks of time reading recipes. Reading through them confirmed what little patience I have for a beautifully photographed or intriguing recipe if the ingredient list is too long or the preparation one-step too many. “Deal breakers” is how I’ve always referred to these recipes. We all have our limit and mine is getting shorter.

It seems you are feeling the same way. My top blog posts from 2014 have one of two things in common – a short list of ingredients or one pan preparation. It feels good to be in sync with you. I am planning more of the same for 2015 – to eat well, simply and in a reasonable amount of time.

I am also planning a redesign of the A Year at the Table site. Two thousand fifteen will be the beginning of my fifth year of blogging and there are some features that will make navigating the site easier and more interesting without changing the simplicity that I feel is so important.

So as 2014 comes to a close I want to thank you for following A Year at the Table. I welcome any suggestions you may have for recipes you want me to feature in 2015 or for my site redesign. Or anything else that’s on your mind about making dinner at home. I look forward to your comments.

Happy New Year!
