Every time I look at the calendar, I am amazed that we’re in a new year. 2014 just flew by for our family.
Somehow in the midst of the craziness I started blogging. I had no idea how much I would enjoy writing and really wasn’t prepared for all the comments and emails I would get from so many people around the world that could relate to my life!
Today I thought I’d share my 5 most visited blog posts/pages from 2014 and also my 5 personal favorite posts.
Top 5 most visited posts/pages of 2014:
You’re Dating a Chef? Please Read This! – Every month, this post is at the top of the list! Dating a chef is not easy!
How to Clean a Chef Coat – Yep! It’s a pain, but somebody has to do it.
Frequently Asked Questions about Being Married to a Chef – Just trying to dispel the crazy myths about being married to a chef. (No, they do not cook for us every night!)
You Know Your Dad’s a Chef When . . . Part 2 – Our kindergartner wrote Modernist Cuisine on her homework and I tweeted about it. Modernist Cuisine tweeted back and my site went crazy with visitors! Woohoo!!
Stitch Fix – This has absolutely nothing to do with raising a family with a chef, but all about me falling in love with this company. Who doesn’t love having great clothes show up in a box at your doorstep? I tweeted about this page. Stitch Fix pinned in on Pinterest and people visited. I doubt any of them were chef wives, but you never know. 🙂
My 5 favorite posts from 2014:
Letter to a Young Chef Wife – I loved putting together a list of things I wish I knew 19 years ago when my husband first started working in a professional kitchen.
The Hands of a Chef – I asked for pictures of chef’s hands on Facebook and received such a great response. 🙂
40 Things you Might Not Know About Me on my 40th Birthday – This was a fun list to come up with. I liked it so much, I moved it over to my Meet our Family page a couple months later.
Can a Chef be an Introvert? – I thought my husband was the only chef who was an introvert, but found out there are quite a few others out there!
What Chef’s Really Eat at the End of the Day – Technically, this is my most popular post ever. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it,) it was published first over on the Huffington Post. I have no way of knowing how many people actually visited the page, but with over 14,000 Facebook likes alone, it’s been read more than any of my other posts. And it’s about Top Ramen. Funny!! The comments from all the chefs are what makes this one of my favorite posts!
