What a year it’s been! Hard to believe it’s already 2012! I’ve made many changes to Morsels of Life – the most obvious? Moving to morselsoflife.com! I have to say, it’s been (and still is) a constant learning experience. I’ve also started a Facebook page, using Twitter, and Pinterest, in addition to changing my printable recipe formats (printer icon on the sidebar). Now it’s instant! No more waiting for me to manually (and probably slowly) make the printables each time. Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, I think the only thing I haven’t changed is my RSS feed! Before I get to the Top 5 most visited recipes on this site, I wanted to thank you all for visiting and continuing to visit this site! Your comments, emails, tweets, pins, and likes all encourage me. Here’s to a tasty and healthy 2012!
Without further ado, here's the Top 5 most visited recipes this year!
I’m sure many of you want to eat healthier this year, but who wants to give up old favorites? Well, no need to give up Crab Rangoons! These baked crab rangoons use real crab, and they’re a faster, easier, and healthier alternative to the traditional deep fried version. They made the “This Month’s Top 5” list too!
Continuing on with the trend of healthy (but tasty) eating, try this simple Greek-style green bean dish cooked with tomatoes and onions. It’s good enough to make #1 in “This Month’s Top 5!”
Sesame Chicken is one of my favorites, and you can use this sauce to make a healthier version! No need to go for the over-breaded, deep-fried restaurant versions – make your own with this customizable sauce.
2. Tater CoinsPin It
I’ve got to admit – this recipe surprised me. Sure, these potatoes are good, with their crisp exteriors and fluffy interiors, but I never expected such a great response. I’m glad many of you liked it though! Not only was this recipe featured on What’s Cooking Thursdays, it made the “This Month’s Top 5" list – twice (here and here)!

1. Egg CloudsPin It
I had the most fun with this recipe. It’s pretty straightforward – just whip some egg whites, form them, and bake with a yolk center. These Egg Clouds are a fun and whimsy way to eat eggs. After whipping the egg whites to stiff peaks, you could also add some cheese before forming into clouds, and baking with a yolk center. Don’t feel threatened – they’re easier than they look! They made “This Month’s Top 5” too!
