Happy New Year, Dear Reader!!! This is the fourth Top 10 Recipes collection here at Lord Byron’s Kitchen. It still boggles my mind that I’ve been doing this for just over five years! I posted my first recipe in July of 2013 – where has the time gone?
I guess it’s true folks; time does fly when one is having fun! And, truthfully, Dear Reader, I have way too much fun running the scenes here at Lord Byron’s Kitchen! Every day brings a new challenge, but not a challenge so big that it overshadows my passion for this blog and the joy that it brings me every single day. (If only I could own a bigger kitchen!)
I’m extremely grateful for you, Dear Reader. As much as I love to cook and write, it is you who has driven my desire to make Lord Byron’s Kitchen bigger and better. I strive to perfect recipes, to post a variety of recipes for all tastes and diets, to improve my photography and writing skills, and more importantly, to interact more with each and every one of you.
Including all of the Christmas recipes you have read in my cookie advent series, which you can read right here: Lord Byron’s 24 Cookies of Christmas – I published a total of 165 recipes this year. That’s an average of 3 recipes per week! See, I told you I love cooking and baking!
The recipes that follow are the Top 10 Recipes of 2018. Some of the recipes are new to the Top 10 list this year, and some are repeated from the previous year – or even several years! It all depends on the popularity in terms of views and comments.
Now, without further delay, here are the Top 10 Recipes of 2018 from Lord Byron’s Kitchen:
