13 Most Popular Posts of 2013

On this last day of 2013, instead of making resolutions that I won’t keep, I’m reflecting on the highlights of this year. It’s a joy to know more people are reading my blog and recreating the recipes I share. Checking the stats at the end of the year revealed the 13 Most Popular Posts of 2013. For someone who specializes in desserts, it was a pleasure to see two savory recipes make the cut,  five Sunday Supper posts in the mix as well as two from my monthly series with Danielle, of Hugs & Cookies XOXO. I hope you’ll find one or two that you missed and add them to your menu soon. Thanks for visiting, commenting, offering feedback and sharing these recipes with your friends and loved ones. I appreciate it more than you can imagine. Happy New Year to you all!
