Top 12 of 2012

Thank you all for coming back time and time again to check out my new recipes throughout the years. 2012 has flown by and has been a year of changes for me. We added a new baby to our family and I left my job after 10 years for a new exciting position. So needless to say, I think 2012 was a great year!

In the kitchen, I’m trying to get back into meal planning again, I’ve slacked off the last month. I have set some health goals for myself and I’m hoping by cleaning out eating up again, I’ll be able to meet those goals! I’ve conquered some of my fears in the kitchen and hope to continue to do that! I have a list of things to try in 2013.

But without further ado….here’s the top 12 most popular recipes of 2012.
