It’s been an exciting year for Food52 on Instagram. #F52Grams has officially been used over 200,000 times (and counting!), which means we’ve seen a lot of your beautiful and delicious photos every day.
Like last year, this list comes with a disclaimer: Do not keep reading if you do not have food immediately nearby. These photos may induce intense frosting cravings, warm-weather produce envy, and a very strong desire to color-code your meals.
Take a look at the most-loved ‘grams of 2014 -- we’re showing off our most popular posts as well as some staff favorites. And prepare yourself to do it all again in 2015. We promise: There will always be more room for pie.
Two ways to beat the January blues: Cheery citrus from @localhaven and bundled up eggs from @brycelongton.
We all have different ways of getting through February: Chocolate cake for some (like @stayhungree) and cocktails for others, à la @fortheloveofthesouth.
Early spring calls for warm soup and hearty seafood. We adored @tworedbowls' ramen and @martinapavlikova's perfect gravalax brunch.
Yes, there were showers, but more importantly, we saw a farmers market haul from @wrightkitchen and @twoofakindcooks's Easter lemon cake.
Like @kraut_kopf, many of you shared your gorgeous Mother's Day foods. Meanwhile, at Food52 HQ, @ryanhamilton captured our Sconehenge art project -- made with Ovenly scones! #priorities
In honor of summer, we asked for your most colorful pictures -- @wrightkitchen brought the carrots and @thefauxmartha supplied donuts.
What says July better than @emcdowell's flag cake (photo by @markweinbergnyc) and @theroamingkitchen's cherries?
How do you spend a lazy August afternoon? Make scallion pancake challah like @hannahrobie or go the route of @catandlamb and bake an entire wedding cake (okay, this one may take more than a day!).
Our inner children came out in September, which is why @mollyyeh's funfetti cake and @estephienordstrom's circle-centric breakfast made such splashes.
Is October National Sweets Month? Between baking @emcdowell's fancy pie (photo by yours truly) and eating Halloween candy (like @littlemarandapiggy), it should be.
We had Thanksgiving on our minds all month (ours was shot by @jamesransom_nyc) but the second it was over, we channeled @elleventyx and dove straight into Cookie Week.
Like @breannasrecipebox and @mollyyeh, we were (and still are) all about that gingerbread.
Want to get in on the fun? Keep an eye out for our next #F52Grams theme every Friday -- and be sure to follow us on Instagram, too.
