After making this list of most popular-with-readers blog posts ever I noticed some common threads that must have made them so. One thing is there are lots of folks who respond to “boozy” posts. The exotic Buddha Hand citron is such a seductive subject in all its glory. Sweet things are universally appealing as are family stories. Enjoy.
# 1. “Pear Infused Vodka” Holiday Gift Idea / E.A.T. #11 Folks all over the world have clicked on this post…so I figure lots of folks like boozy pears? Thanks to each and every one of you.
#2. “Buddha’s Hand Good Luck Marmalade” A few years ago I ran across my first “Buddha Hand” citron. I purchased, I blogged and for over 6 years this post has been the second-all-time most popular, hit on, reposted of all my posts. It didn’t hurt that Smithsonian Magazine included a link to my site in their story about the subject. Who knew?
#3. Blood Orangecello and Bootlegging This post contains a family tale depicted in the title which must have proved irresistible to more than a few lovers of homemade hooch and blood-red, very-short-seasonal, blood oranges.
#4. Blackberries, A Snake and An Upside Down (Gluten Free) Cake One of my favorites. It has a story about a dramatic blackberry picking experience with my Grandmother that left a definite impression on me as a child. I cannot hear a store of blackberry picking without thinking of it. The cake recipe is pretty good too.
#5. Give Me Some Sugar, Sugah! Sugars flavored with so many good things such as ginger, lavender, star anise, vanilla beans and citrus peel just to name a few appealed to the sweet tooth in so many readers. This story was also an homage to all the real aunts, aunts-in-friendship, grandmothers and mothers who could never get enough of our sweet “sugah” when we were young.
