Countdown to 2017- Most Popular/ Reader Favorite

 The Countdown to 2017 continues.  This is the second to last one.

 Again, it's hosted by Sarah of Fantastical Sharing.    If you've been following along with us you know we've covered Appetizers, Breakfasts,  Main Dishes, Desserts and Crockpot dishes.

This is actually the most eye opening part of the countdown for me.   I know some recipes are 'eh', some really good, and then there's 'the one', the post that seems to take on a persona of its own.
Which was this one.
Irish Apple Cake

Irish Apple Cake
I made this to take to a St. Paddy's Day event, and as is my wont, I did some research to find an authentic recipe to take along.  And the fact that this was also an older recipe, as in "OLD" was a big plus.
BONUS!!!!  It tasted great.  In fact, I'm lucky I even got a chance to sample it.  I, ummm, took advantage of the fact that I brought it, and since life is short anyways, dessert should sometimes come first.
I cut the first slice and sampled it.
And life was good.
However there were a few other recipes that deserve an honorable mention, that didn't get highlighted in previous posts. 
From the beginning...
Apple Stuffed Pork Tenderloin 
Pork and Bok Choy Stir Fry  (cause I love, love, love Bok Choy and had to include this in here)
Savory Oat Pancakes  (These were surprisingly good, and I've made them a couple of times since)

Coming up tomorrow, we have the Wild Card pick.  Which means I have to pick one post, one single, solitary recipe that I think was spectacular or repeatable or I just plain liked, a lot. Or I can tell you what I want to make or have plans for or? 
It is a Wild Card after all.

  1. That apple cake does look scrumptious! Can't wait to see THE ONE!!!

    1. The Apple Cake was 'the one', for some reason it took off, and was the most popular post/dish/recipe of the year. And it was good.


I love to hear from my readers, so please feel free to drop me a note, let me know if you like something I made, it makes my day.
