10 Best Desserts of 2013



I think it's obvious I had a major sweet tooth this year! And apparently so did you, my dessert posts for the first time ever were just as popular as my Crockpot posts - you can count on seeing more of both in the coming year. I firmly believe desserts should be easy to pull together and of course taste amazing, which is why I use a variety of shortcuts - cake mixes, canned pie filling, instant pudding, etc. Here are the top ten dessert posts of 2013:


Easy Cherry Pie Sugar Cookie Bars







Pumpkin Butter Cake







Sweet Strawberry Cobbler







Irish Potato Candy







Toasted Coconut Pudding Pie







Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake







Cherry Cheesecake Brownies







Pineapple Pecan Carrot Cake







Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies







Cake Mix Caramel Apple Cake

Menu Plan Monday 12/30 - Happy New Year 2014!



I say it every year, but it's hard to believe this year is coming to a close! This past year has been a record-breaking one here on Mostly Homemade Mom and I want to personally thank each one of you that comes looking for more yummy recipes and menu plan ideas. I truly, truly love what I do here on the blog and I'm still a bit shocked that so many of you come back here to visit each day! My year has been blessed because of you. Thank you!



What a whirlwind of a week Christmas was! I have to say though, this was the first year Silas was REALLY into Christmas and completely understood what Christmas morning meant. It's so much more fun to be a parent on Christmas! Wesley was really hilarious. I kept trying to get him to open some more presents, and he kept saying, "Um. No thank you." I totally wasted a few hours wrapping his presents, he would have been much happier to actually see the gifts under the tree! 

This week Paul is working New Year's Eve, so most likely I'll be sleeping when the ball drops (ha)! New Year's Day we're visiting my grandparents and celebrating Christmas with them. The boys are really excited! Here's my menu plan for the week:



Cheesy Bacon Tortellini Skillet








Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti








Visit with Grammy & Poppy







Cheesy Stuffed Pepper Casserole








Creamy Cucumber Bagel Sandwiches








Stuffed Corn & Black Bean Quesadillas








Crockpot Chicken & Stuffing

10 Best Main Dish Recipes of 2013



I hope you have a favorite casserole dish because after this post, it's going to get a workout! If I could sum up the most popular main dish recipes here on Mostly Homemade Mom this year, it would be "comfort food." I'm happy to say too, that even though most of these fall into that category, when you prepare things at home YOU control the ingredients. Experiment. Try new dinners based on these recipe winners with your family's likes, dislikes, and dietary restrictions in mind. Most of all, have fun!

Ranch Pesto Rigatoni Bake







Southwest Chicken Wraps







Farmer's Market Spaghetti







Honey Dijon Chicken Salad
