(Top Ten) Recipes From Last Week

 Every week, Aubree Cherie at Living Free posts her top ten favorite blog recipes from the last week. I love reading her lists because a) sometimes my recipes are there, and that makes me happy, b) I get behind in my own blog reading, so this helps me out, and c) I learn about new blogs. Aubree is off becoming a world-wide, traveling horticulturist so she asked some of her friends to take care of her Top Ten Lists while she was gone. Last week, it was hosted by Gluten Free Scallywag, and here is a perfect example of just why I love the Top Ten. I had never heard of Gluten Free Scallywag before, but her blog is a complete joy to look at. Her photos are beautiful, and her caramelized banana and ginger cheesecake is on my Top Ten List this week.

A little note about my Top Ten: Aubree Cherie is gluten, dairy, and sugar-free, so the Top Ten is a great place to highlight recipes that fall within those categories. My Top Ten this week will not be all dairy and sugar-free, but they will be amazing recipes that can inspire you, no matter what your diet. Limiting this list to only ten recipes was really difficult, especially because this is the only time I'll be doing this. Because I wanted to explore some new blogs (and encourage you all to do so as well), I chose from blogs that aren't on my sidebar. But all of those blogs (look to your right and down) are the ones I make sure to read every week, so you should definitely check those out for more holiday baking inspiration.

Oh my gosh! I am drooling over that cranberry chocolate bread! I'd been planning on using up the cranberries in my fridge with a bread recipe this week, but I'm definitely switching gears and going for the chocolate cranberry bread now!

I'm glad you shared so many new blogs...well mostly glad, b/c now I have to go read through all of them! Good thing I've got a long weekend ahead of me.

Hey Iris,

Great list! Thanks again for hosting this past week. I'm glad you had fun with it - it is somewhat challenging though isn't it? It's hard to bring it down to 10.. there are so many tasty recipes about :)

Happy Holidays! ~Aubree Cherie
