Happy New Year - 2014 Favourite recipes

Happy New Year! 2014 has been a wonderful year, so much has happened and it has been a delicious year of baking for tvandcookies. So to start off 2015 I thought it would be fun to recap some of my fvourite recipes from the past year and if you missed any of them you can go and have a look. I'll start with the recipe that I have made the most this year, which is this delicious brown bread (above). Since making this for the blog back in July I have made a loaf every week, if not more frequently. Recently I discovered where to buy millet to put on the top and it works very well. Check out the recipe here.

 These chocolates were a special valentines treat for my boyfriend and I was very happy with how they came out. I love the taste of Demets Turtles and although he had only sampled the real thing once before, I think these made him a convert. They are also easier to make than you would think. Have a look at them here.

This deliciousness was a treat I made for myself in the run down to my birthday in May. It turned out very well and made me question ever buying granola again. I would definitely recommend this recipe.

These cookies were the surprise hit of the year for me. I didn't expect much out of them and I'll admit they don't look like much but they taste amazing, every single bite was like a mini journey through layers of flavour and texture. If you consider yourself a foodie, you will definitely appreciate these.

Another surprise hit for me were these peanut-butter chocolate cookie dough snacks. I didn't expect much from the recipe as I put it together but they were absolutely amazing. My bf has requested them several times since. You need to try these.

Finally these bite-size raspberry tarts which became the header for the blog were absolutely delicious and a lot of fun to make. I certainly think they could use a revisit from me to figure out how to glaze properly. So I might wait until summer but these will definitely be made again, why not try them yourself, here.

So these have been some of my favourite recipes from the year. It has been a delicious and entertaining year of baking and I am looking forward to even more in the upcoming year. I have some exciting baking projects coming up that I am very excited about and think you will really enjoy them, so stick around and as always enjoy.
