Top 10 Recipes of 2017 on Jo's Kitchen Larder

And here we are in 2018! Happy New Year to all of you my lovely readers! Hope you’ve all had wonderful Christmas and are rested and ready to face 2018!

It’s really good to be back after couple of weeks of festive radio silence which was really badly needed to allow some reflection, self-care and most of all quality family time. But now it’s time for a come back and what a better way than with a little summary of Top 10 Recipes of 2017 on Jo’s Kitchen Larder.

2017 was a year when it all began for me! Back in March I’d decided to start sharing my recipes on the world wide web in the form of a blog and back then I had no idea anyone would ever come to read them. My photography skills were non existent but as I’m a quick learner they started getting better from recipe to recipe. I’ve started tackling the world of social media which (to be honest) still baffles me a lot but I keep persevering πŸ™‚ . I’ve met a bunch of wonderful and supportive fellow bloggers who have been simply amazing – and here goes the huge shout out to wonderful #CookBlogShare community! You’re the best!

One thing I’ve got to tell you is that blogging is such a wonderful rollercoaster, school of life, almost full time job (considering the amount of time spent on it) or an “expensive hobby” (as hubby calls it jokingly and then he gets the slap) lol. For me personally it is my passion, something that brings me lots of joy, my little creative outlet! I hope this feeling continues!

Finally, without further ado, below I present you my Top 10 Recipes of 2017 on Jo’s Kitchen Larder! These are the recipes you’ve consistently loved the most throughout the last year!

Thank you all for your support! Keep coming back and I promise to keep tempting you with even more delicious recipes in 2018!

      Thanks Corina! πŸ™‚ For some reason it feels much longer than that for sure. It must be lovely and welcoming blogging community that makes you feel like you belong no matter how long you’ve been blogging for, which I’m so grateful for! πŸ™‚ Turkey Chilli Pie is one of my favourites as there are always happy smiling faces when it’s being served! x

    Mmm all of those recipes certainly look delicious – I really want to try the aubergine tomato and mozzarella bake now! I can see why the millionaires bars were the most popular as well – drool. What a great year you’ve had, your photos are amazing and I would have thought you’d been blogging much longer. Here’s to a great 2018!

    What a fantastic and busy 9 months you have had Jo, I did not realise you only started blogging back in March. Mind you I am so out of the loop nowadays that I have no idea how long some of the new blogs have been going. I have enjoyed seeing your recipes – not only are they yummy but they look great due to your beautiful photographs.
    Thank you also for supporting Bake of the Week and my GBBO bake along.
    happy new year xx

    Wow – I can’t believe you’ve been blogging for less than a year…you’re blog looks for more ‘grown up’! Especially your photography. It’s been so lovely ‘virtually’ getting to know you this year and seeing your lovely blog has grown and developed – your recipes always make me feel hungry and often give me that ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ feeling. Can’t wait to see what you come up with this year! πŸ˜€ Eb x
