Yankee Kitchen Ninja's list of the best recipes of 2014

Yesterday I revealed the list of my 10 Best Recipes of 2014 as chosen by you, my readers. Don't get me wrong, you chose very well -- from smoothies and desserts to pastas and soups -- there are some awesome recipes in that list!

But one other thing I like to do each year is also highlight some recipes that I particularly loved but that didn't turn out to be quite as popular (according to site statistics).

I hope you find some great recipe ideas in this list that you might have missed or overlooked during 2014.

  5. Baked Ziti with Tomatoes, Broccoli and Olives

  6. No-Bake Healthy Oat Bars

  1. Great list, Julianne! You've done amazing things in 2014. Keep up the great work and I hope you have a fantastic 2015!

  2. I have made a few of these this year (the gluten free cookies and the pineapple rice) and really loved them both; plus I can attest that the brussel sprout salad was super yummy; I'll have to try a few more from this list. I especially have my eye on the baked ziti and the peach muffins. Thanks for another year of great recipes!
