Best Posts of 2014 – Personal Favourites

Best Posts of 2014 From The Bewitchin' Kitchen

I have already posted the most popular posts of 2014, but now I want to post about my personal favorites written in 2014.

2014 was a  year of growth for The Bewitchin’ Kitchen. I learned so much and saw a lot of improvements. I improved in my stats, which is awesome, but I also improved my writing style and photography skills.

In 2014 I also started another blog, The Everyday Domestic, it failed. So I transferred the posts I did for that blog over here to The Bewitchin’ Kitchen (which is why you will find a few with the watermark The Everyday Domestic).

I wanted to do a little round up of what I believe are the best posts of 2014 for The Bewitchin’ Kitchen in 2014, so here they are:

Favorite Posts of 2014:

UNG-DRILL-Frame-Ikea-Hack

IKEA UNG DRILL Frame Hack: I LOVE this little Ikea Hack I did. I transformed this frame with a chalk-based paint and made the print using my iPhone (here’s how you can make a printable on your phone).

Jake and the neverland pirates cake

Jake and The Neverland Pirates Cake: I made up this cake for my son’s second birthday party this year. It was a great success and I’m really proud of it. It was originally posted to my other blog, but I transferred over.

21 Day Fix Results
21 Day Fix Results: 2014 has been a roller coaster for me with my health and fitness. I’m currently working hard on my thyroid health (I had a thyroidectomy and it’s been chaos ever since). So whenever I achieve success, I like to share it.

Kelowna Travel - Stunning View From Kelowna Mountain
Kelowna Mountain Bridges
: Two of my girlfriends and I took a last minute trip to Kelowna (and the rest of the Okanagan) last May and decided to hit up Kelowna Mountain Brides, we had a great time and I wanted to share our adventure.

A 20-Something's List To Accomplish Before 30

A 20-Something’s List To Accomplish Before 30: On my 26th birthday I did a little bit of reflecting and came up with this list. Everything I write on The Bewitchin’ Kitchen comes from a personal place, but this post came from somewhere deeper. I hope you like it.

5 Okanagan Wineries you have to visit on your next wine tour.

5 Okanagan Wineries You Have To Visit: I love The Okanagan, my annual trip is something I look forward to all year. With that visit we usually visit a few wineries and I wanted to write a post about my favourites.

Sweet and Spicy Turkey Burger with Pineapple Sriracha Sauce
Sweet n’ Spicy Turkey Burger with Pineapple Sriracha Sauce: It’s a low carb recipe that doesn’t skimp on flavor. I haven’t made it since, but I think I will be adding it to my menu plan soon. It was a huge hit with my husband and me.

Maple Butter Cinnamon Rolls recipe - the most amazing cinnamon rolls ever

Maple Butter Cinnamon Rolls: Aside from these tasting amazing, I’m really proud of the photography on this post.

Biscotti Munch recipe

Biscotti Munch: After falling in love with the variety from Costco I decided to head home and attempt to make a batch myself – it was a tremendous success.

Quick and simply DIY Wine Charms
DIY Christmas Wine Charms: I’m really not a crafty person so when I put these wine charms together, I was pretty proud of myself.

So that’s my year! I hope you enjoyed my favourite posts of 2014, and if you agree don’t forget to pin it!

  3. Honestly I love ALL your posts! They are so inspiring!!! I’m hoping to jump back on the exercise wagon, so the 21 day fit looks awesome!

    • Thanks Jenn! It’s a great program. She is releasing a 21 Day Fix EXTREME in February (which is very exciting), from what I gather the moves are a little tougher and there are not “treats” allowed for 21 days. I plan on testing it out in April 🙂 (Feb-March I’m going to do the new Insanity.)

  13. You know we lived in the Okanagan and never visited any wineries, it is now on our list to do.
