Top 10 Foodie Quine Recipes for 2015

Happy New Year! We're just about recovered from the Hogmanay hangover here in Scotland ;-) I hope the first few days of 2016 have been good for you and yours and would like to take this opportunity to wish you health and happiness for the months to come. Lang may yer lum reek!


As promised in my Baker's Dozen" favourite Foodie Adventures post, today I'm sharing my top ten most popular posts as clicked on by you my readers for 2015. The past 12 months were very busy for me in freelance foodie terms and I also had the opportunity to work on recipe development and sponsored posts for some well known brands including British Lion Eggs, Barber's Cheddar, Zyliss, Love Pork, Oreo, Bailey's, Schwartz, Good Family Food, The Big Lunch, SPAM, Expedia, Tefal, Thermapen, Craft Bakers Week and more. Here's hoping for more of the same in 2016. 
Without further ado, here's the final countdown...











No surprise that the top two are my phenomenal Irn Bru creations. I've had so much great feedback on both of these recipes and they have been widely shared on social media. I really must get my thinking cap on in order to emulate their success in 2016. 



It's the time of year where many food bloggers do round up posts so here are links to some more from my colleagues. Plenty of inspiration to be found within these for meal planning in the year ahead

    1. I knew the Irn Bru ones would be up there as they went crazy on social media but some of the others are a surprise to see.

  2. I'm finding these top ten posts so interesting - some you expect and some are quite surprising. Your potato crust pie sounds fabulous and is making me feel very hungry.

    1. You should definitely give the potato crust pie a try, it's one of my favourite vegetarian dishes.

    1. Isn't it just! Lots of my Christmas posts were popular too but they had less time to build up visitor numbers than recipes from earlier in the year.

  5. I love the look of that spinach, mushroom and cheese pie, but it'll have to wait until after Veganuary!

    1. It would make the perfect treat for 1st February! Don't think I could live without cheese and eggs.

  6. Some fab recipes here! Love the one that involved a singing turnip/swede. Very disappointed it didn't actually sing though...did you ever try playing it Abba? :-) My kids would love the rainbow cupcakes: I will have to give them a go. Eb x

    1. Its such a good food hack. Haven't actually tried ABBA but it has squeaked a bit when I've made it again.

  7. I must try your pulled pork recipe! Heard SO many good things! I absolutely love swede too but have to get my husband to help me cut it so may need to try your singing technique, it did make me LOL. I also LOVE the sound of your cheesy spinach, mushroom and potato crushed pie YUM!! Thanks for the run down x

    1. The traybake was one I was surprised to see in the top ten, I know I have a lot of juniper loving followers so the gin was no shock.
