My most popular instagram recipe posts of 2017 from Spinach Tiger

Hi friends and Happiest New Year to you. I’m doing something different this year.

Instead of sharing my 2017’s most popular blog posts, I want to share with you the best nine on instagram, a place I am very active. Pictures tell their own story.

I’m pretty happy ? with my #2017bestnine, a fairly good representation of my own big fat healthy ? recipes ??‍? and my personal food view.

The most “liked” instagram photos of 2017.

Red Flannel Hash (Beets, Sweets, and Baked Eggs)  Never forget to use the beet greens.

Prosciutto Wrapped Broccolini 

You know what’s super cool about this recipe? It’s featured in a diet cookbook! Yep, this year I provided 25 recipes for a cookbook and this was one of them.

How to Make Italian Chicken Cutlets (you can use regular flour, rice flour or almond flour as alternatives). Then you can turn them into chicken parmesan.

Chicken and Cauliflower Rice and the Dish that Caused a Huge Ruckus at a National Grocery Chain

I am always trying to reinvent comfort food, because I love to eat and that’s not carrot stick love!

Mr. Spinach Tiger actually thought he was eating rice!

I could also tell you a long story about how hard it is to get bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. I had a big fight with a grocery store chain that would no longer provide them (because they kept yanking off the skin prior to packaging).  I asked several times if I could purchase skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs for my recipe development and the only answer I got back. “People don’t want the skin.”  Well, they can yank it off, but I can’t put it back on.

Weeks of complaining and trying to get to the bottom of why a huge grocery store chain can no longer provide normal chicken thighs (with a bone and with skin) led to a heart-breaking decision to take most of my shopping elsewhere. They have turned around and said they will provide them, but it took so much energy that, for now, I’ll buy them at Whole Foods.

I was particularly proud of these berry cups made in a muffin pan. They are the perfect dessert for a party.

Maple Pecan Cheesecake Bars. These are a miracle dessert, made with almond flour  and swerve, making these a delicious low-carb treat. They also took Pinterest by storm.

Grain free stuffing made from grain free biscuits. This was the year I decided to try my hand at grain-free baking. I have several other stuffing and biscuit recipes here at Spinach Tiger, but I didn’t want the grain free (Paleo or Keto) crowd to be left out. As it turns out, the biscuit is always in my top ten and during the holidays, and so was the grain free stuffing. It was worth playing around with because we also ate this way during the holidays and we never gained those usual 5 to 7 pounds. Did you know nuts could do this?

Cranberry Sauce with a Sugar Free Option – I honestly thought this was a fail, using Swerve, but after 24 hours in the refrigerator, this was the best cranberry sauce I ever made!

Blackberry Cake with Lemon Thyme Mascarpone Frosting. This cake is personal. I baked it to celebrate my 1000th recipe. I’ve yet to post it, although that’s a shame as it’s everyone’s favorite cake around here. Ryder said, “this has to go on the blog, and my husband was caught last week eating the last piece we had frozen from months ago, saying, “make this again.” It’s gluten free, and took me three tries to get it to the level I approve of to share it with you. Coming soon.
