Top 5 Purple House Cafe Posts of 2013

In my continued celebration of one year (one year!) of blogging at Purple House Cafe, I bring you the top 5 posts of 2013!

5.  Homemade Bagels.  It’s no wonder these are the fifth most frequently sought-after goodies on this site – they are hands-down the best bagels I’ve ever had.  Just recently, we had a bagel brunch featuring these, a toaster on the table, and a whole pile of fixins, including bacon, scrambled eggs, preserves, cheese, cinnamon sugar, and more.  Best brunch idea I’ve had in a long time!

4.  Salted Chocolate Challah.  Need I say more?  This bread is fantastic.

3.  Raspberry White Chocolate Croquembouche.  This extravagant dessert was a long-held bucket list item for me, and I finally managed to cross it off this year.

2.  Fig Cupcakes with Vanilla Mascarpone Buttercream.  This was one of the first recipes I developed from my own brain!  They were delicious.
