A lot is going on these days, and if you’re like me, the days are blending into a blur. Today, I’m taking a trip down memory lane to review my top ten posts of all time as reported by Google Analytics.
#1 Yankee Candle Hack: Easy Meltcup Recycling
Two years later, I’m still in love with my Yankee Candle Scenterpiece system. And, I’m still recycling my tarts in the Easy MeltCup. It saves me money and keeps my house smelling amazing.
#2 Mysterious Money Soap
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is purchasing money soap. You never know if you’ll get $1 or $50 out of the soap or in our case, you’ll always get a $1 bill. We will still keep buying them because you know tradition!
#3 Ukrop’s Chocolate Chess Pie: CopyKat Recipe
Baking pies will always be one of my favorite pastimes, so I love that this post made the top 10. When Ukrop’s left Richmond, I mourned the loss of my beloved chocolate chess pie. It took a while but I developed a pretty amazing copykat recipe. And, I’m anxiously awaiting the return of Ukrop’s to the Richmond area with an opening of the Ukrop’s dining hall.
#4 Candle Making Class: Rolling Hill Candle Company
I loved this candle making class so much, I’ve taken it three times! Spending an afternoon making candles and chatting with friends. Rolling Hill Candle Company isn’t currently offering classes because of quarantine, but they are taking special orders.
#5 Classic Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs
There is nothing better than a homemade peanut butter chocolate egg. There isn’t! At my house, it isn’t Easter until a batch of this classic treat has been made. It can be a very complicated process to find a good recipe for peanut butter chocolate eggs but, today I’m sharing an extraordinary one with you! I’m a little sad that this year, we won’t be making Easter eggs. The ingredients are hard to procure, and given our small scale celebration this year, I decided it was best to take the year off.
#6 Ukrop’s Mac & Cheese
My love for Ukrop’s food goes deep! It may be all the years I spent as a Ukropian or the southern style food they always serve up. I still believe that cheese is one of my main food groups. And, I still love this copykat recipe of Ukrop’s Mac and Cheese.
#7 Marvel’s Black Panther Themed Dinner Party
This was such a fun dinner party and a unique opportunity to try to make a new ethnic dish and celebrate the opening of Black Panther. This grown-up comic book-themed dinner party was a great time. We’re still waiting on the sequel, but I hear it may be coming in 2022.
#8 Incredible Flats: Rothys
I still believe in my love letter to Rothys. My collection has grown from 1 pair to 5 pairs. The shoes are an investment, but worth it. And, for once the hype is real about a product. The pointy-toed versions are my all-time favorite.
#9 Impress Christmas Nails
I really wanted to love the Impress brand holiday nails. I’ve even tried out the Halloween nails after this post. The same result, the manicure only lasted a few hours. I’ll keep trying them out and hope that one day the glue from the Impress nail kit will stand up to my needs.
#10 No-Bake Grinch Fudge
I think it’s safe to say, my readers love the holidays as much as I do! I threw this Grinch themed no-bake fudge from the contents of my pantry. It was also an opportunity to use my homemade mint extract.
I hope you are all staying safe inside, and staying healthy. Do you have a favorite post from my site? If so, share it in the comments below. I’d love to hear from real readers like you. 🙂
