Happy New Year, Dear Reader!!

I’ve had this little blog of mine since early 2013.  It was then known as 2gays1eats.  In late June of 2015, I upgraded from my free WordPress site to a paid site which gave me more blogging options.  I also changed the name to Pretty Practical Pantry to better reflect what I am all about.  After all, a blog is just an extension or creative outlet of oneself.

Once I did those things, my little blog began to see more traffic from visitors like you.  I had a few recipes go viral on Yummly and StumbleUpon.  My Pretty Practical Pantry Facebook page began to gain more followers – in fact, the last six months has seen a 800% increase!  A few of my recipes were accepted to Foodgawker, and my blog was featured for a week on Delishogram.

I’ll share these viewer numbers with you just so you can understand how excited I am about my blog’s growth:

  • 2013 – 267 views
  • 2014 – 1,000 views
  • 2015 – 104,698 views
  • 2013 – 116 visitors
  • 2014 – 243 visitors
  • 2015 – 68,048 visitors
  • 2013 – 6 comments
  • 2014 – 36 comments
  • 2015 – 1220 comments

Overall, 2015 was a great year for the blog.  So, I wanted to share with you the top 10 recipes from the last twelve months that YOU, Dear Reader, have viewed, shared on your social media sites, commented on, or simply printed the recipe to save for future use.

Thank you for making 2015 a great year for Pretty Practical Pantry!  Stay tuned for many more new and tasty recipes in 2016, and don’t forget to check out my furniture and craft sections too!  Happy New Year!!!

  1. The recipes sound great but the advertisements that accompany them are gross: how to get rid of toenail fungus. Not terribly appetizing. I’m going to try the Asian bulgoki type dish.
