Domestic Dreamboat – The First Year Review

2014 collage

Since 2014 is officially about to come to an end, I figured it’s time to do a bit of an annual review. It’s now been a whole year since I started up the old blog. I have learned a lot since starting – about the technical aspects of running a website to food photography to writing to recipe development. And trust me, I still have a ton to learn. 

And, thanks to the power of statistics, I learned which posts people liked, and which ones they didn’t. So, here are your favorites.

So there you have it – all of your favorite Domestic Dreamboat recipes of 2014. Which one was your favorite?

Next year I will be back with more great recipes, and hopefully more craft projects as well. But honestly, I’m just not as good at that stuff, so who knows. I hope all of your years were as good as mine, and let’s hope they will only get better from here.

    The Greek Style Chickpea and Quinoa Salad was a regular feature in our house since published! Also the roasted marshmallow rice crispie squares blew my mind. Keep them coming Carissa! Love this blog!
