Top 10 Recipes of the Year Collage


Every year, right before the New Year begins, I share the recipes that were your favorite from the year before.  It’s fun to see what my readers liked best, and how it changes from year to year. 

Recently, a reader wrote to me.  She had been browsing through my top ten posts from the last few years.  She told me that she thought maybe there was a glitch because many of them were the same from year to year.  

It’s true.  Some of them don’t seem to leave the top ten, they only change their position. This year though, I had a few that have been in the top recipes the last few years drop off, only to be replaced by either brand new recipes from this year or by recipes that just barely missed it last year.

Leaving comments helps me, and helps others, too!

There is nothing more than someone like me, that develops recipes for a living, loves more than when people tell me they tried my recipe. Did you love it? Hate it?  Tweak it to make it your own?  I want to know. 

Don’t ever feel like asking a question is silly.  When others read the comment, it might help them, too. Or maybe a trick you tried will help someone else, or inspire them to switch it up a bit.

Please take the time to leave a comment here, on social media, or simply drop me a line in my email.  I love hearing from you!
