Top 10 Posts of 2014


This is my favorite post of the year sometimes, a look back at the top posts on the blog!

In case you're really curious, I use Google Analytics to look at the most common landing pages, then combined the mobile and regular page views to come up with what posts went over best.  It's not all new posts either, a few of my old favorites continue to do well, especially how to make lunches ahead of time and my crockpot lasagna (which you need to try if you haven't yet).

But on with the posts!

#1 - Crockpot Lasagna - NO precooking involved - Far and away the favorite this year, thanks to a few features on some awesome larger blogs.

BentoLunch.net - Crockpot Lasagna, no precooking required

#2 - Make Ahead Bento series - This is one of two series I wrote a couple of years ago how to pre pack lunches for the week, with the key point being to plan what keeps in the fridge.

#3 - Pack Ahead Week series - This is the other series on lunches to make ahead of time.


#4 - Keeping It Simple Bento Lunch Formula - This is a new post with tips on how to plan a great bento lunch.


#5 - How to Make Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Apples - These are so easy and cute for your turtle fan!


#6 - Yo Ho Yo Ho, A Pirate Bento for Ben - Everyone still loves pirates!


#7 - How to Make Easy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cupcakes - Turtles were really popular this year, in my house as well as everywhere else!  These were Ben's birthday cupcakes.


#8 - Freezer Meal Extravaganza: 14 Ready to Go Meals - One of these days, I swear I'm going to update the pictures on this post, but until then, it has yummy food ideas.  Freezer meals don't look that pretty, but they are so convenient!


#9 - Make Your Own Fruit Picks - These Perler Bead picks were cupcake toppers for Faith's 8th birthday.  They are easy to make and really cute additions to a lunch.

#10 - Simple Snacks with CutezCute Cutters - Just some tips on how to make a really cute snack or meal that isn't time consuming!


With that review, I discovered a few surprises of posts that were more popular than I would have guessed, and a few old posts that everyone seems to love.  Which ones were your favorites?  And which ones do you think should have been here?
