2012 Review: Top Six Pinterest Favorites from Salad in a Jar

Have you missed any of these favorites from this blog, pinned and re-pinned on Pinterest this year? In order of popularity, I have gathered them in one place for you.

How to Make Salad in a Jar

If your clothes feel tight and your pocket-book thin, the new year might be a good time to give this money/calorie-saving technique a try.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites

Check out the comments on this post for some delicious-sounding variations. The guys seem to really like this one.

Scooter's Spaghetti

Scooter’s Spaghetti

Many pinners have renamed this “Baked Spaghetti.” But it’s so much more.  A layer of cream cheese in the middle and onion rings on top make this spaghetti memorable.

Apples in a Bag

Apples in a Bag (but there’s no law saying you can’t make it in a bowl)

A quick snack to eat by itself or pour over your oatmeal or ice cream. Makes a good “apple bueno” too.

Fruit and Cream MIni Tarts

Fruit and Cream Mini-Tarts

A special dessert for a special occasion. Small portions make tarts easy to serve to a crowd. 

Broccoli Rice Casserole

Broccoli Rice Casserole (No Canned Soup)

This old favorite gets a redo with no help from Campbells.

Happy New Years and may God bless you richly in 2013. pr

Paula, thanks for all the great recipes! When you share, things come back to you two-fold, I think. Your blog is so wonderful, and all the recipes are golden. When I want to make something new, I always browse through yours first. Happy, healthy 2013 to you and yours!

I am a SUCKER for broccoli rice casserole! I’m definitely going to try your version. My ass thanks you already!

I’m really sorry your sweet milk bread machine bread didn’t make the top six. I have a loaf of it in baking right now. IT IS SOOO GOOD!!! I’ve had several people sort of turn up their nose when gifted with what they assume is just plain ole white bread. Then they taste it and realize what a treat they’ve been given. My ex-daughter-in-law was one such doubter and she proclaimed this bread addicting!! Just found and tried your apples in a bag last week. They’re great, too. Keep up your delicious postings.


Paula December 29, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Thanks Peggy. You’re so kind. That particular recipe does get plenty of pins but I think lots of people are afraid of working with yeast and making fresh bread. If only they knew how simple it is with a bread machine to do the kneading.
