Top 7 Recipes from My First Year of Blogging

Today is my 1-year blog anniversary! Has time flown by or what? I'm so excited to share this post with you today, because I'm doing a lot of new things: this is my first "top recipes" post, the first post where I tell you my favorites, and (most exciting) the first time I'm going to ask you what you want to see! 

Even with one year down, I feel like I'm just getting started. I'm even more excited about the year to come than I am about this post. That's why I want to ask you what you want to see more of in the coming year. Scroll down to answer my quick (I swear--it's only one question!) survey about what you want to see moving forward. I can't wait to dive into year two! A huge thank you to all of you that make writing this blog such a fulfilling (and fun!) pass time. Without further ado...

Top 7 Paleo Recipes

...from my first year of blogging:

7. Apple Cinnamon Roll Porridge

I made this recipe when our apple tree was at it's peak--dropping apples this way and that. Even though it's seasonal, I eat it all year long. 

6. Rhubarb Upside Down Cake

The best part of this cake is how pretty it is when you flip it out of the pan. Rhubarb has a perfect natural ombré of pinks and yellows. Tea time anyone?

5. Indian Carrot Pudding

I love that this post was so popular, and not just because Indian Carrot Pudding is so good (which it is). I actually love this post because I got to share a piece of my trip to India with all of you! Visiting India was one of the most memorable experiences I've had to date, and Indian flavors still show up in my food on a weekly basis. 

4. Dark Chocolate and Walnut Paleo Fudge

Sometimes, all you need is a big bite of fudge. No further description necessary. 

3. Semi-Sweet Flourless Chocolate Cake

When there's no fudge, cake will do just fine ;) This was one of my first recipes, but it appears that you guys like chocolate as much as I do-- this recipe is number 3! 

2. Paleo Cream of Mushroom Soup with Bacon and Leeks

Adding crispy bacon and leeks to the top of a creamy bowl of earthy mushroom soup can't be a bad idea, can it? I've had readers tell me they use this soup recipe as a base for green bean casserole. Since I have a green bean casserole love affair, that's definitely something I'll have to try this fall! 

And now, drum roll please... the most popular recipe on Foraged Dish to date:

1. Paleo Swedish Meatballs

Seriously, I never expected these to be such a hit. I think because developing this recipe was one of my first experiences with Swedish Meatballs, I didn't know that other people would appreciate them so much. That said, they are amazing and so is that gravy. I haven't tried it myself, but I hear these freeze really well, too!

Ok, so you voted? Good! Now, what are my top recipe picks so far? That's a tough question. I probably would've picked that Dark Chocolate and Walnut Paleo Fudge if it wasn't already listed above. Some of my other favorites are Paleo Coconut Snowballs

...and this Lemongrass Soup, which is always welcome on my table:

Phew! Long post. That's all for now!
