These are the Top 20 Posts of 2015 on Wine & Glue!Come see what made the cut!

First, let me just say THANK YOU for making 2015 an AMAZING year. This year far exceeded what I hoped and wished for my blog. This is now my career, and I love every second of it. My parents always told me to pick a job that I couldn’t believe I get paid to do, and this is it! Thank you all for making that possible. I know that I would be no where without readers like you making my recipes, pinning my posts, and sharing them all over the place.


So, without further ado, these are the posts that were published in 2015 that got the most page views!

20. Red Velvet Buttercream Frosting  It’s frosting that tastes like red velvet. I mean . . . #duh.Red Velvet Buttercream Frosting

19. Loaded Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bark  You guys . . . this bark. I mean, it is AMAZING. Obviously. I just published it and it still made it into the top 20.loaded_reeses_peanut_butter_cup_bark

18. Dirty Pina Colada Coke  This needs to be your new drink. It’s so easy and absolutely delicious!dirty_pin_colada_coke

17. Chocolate Covered Cherry Magic Bars  These need to be a part of your life ASAP. The base is my own personal brownie mix, and then you know you throw more chocolate sweetened condensed milk and cherries on there and basically you are making heaven in a pan.chocolate_covered_cherry_magic_bars_4

16. Skinny Pumpkin Nutella Dip  So it’s not actually fair that this made the top 20 because it’s an old recipe that I reshot in 2015. But I’m including it because it’s that good.skinny_pumpkin_nutella_dip

14. DIY Cake Smash Photo Shoot  I am so happy that this one made it into the top 20. And I’m just going to go ahead and pretend that it’s because of my awesome tips and not just because of the absolutely adorable baby :)diy_cake_smash_photo_shoot_8
