Readers’ Choice: Top 10 Recipes from 2017


Top 10 Recipes 2017 -

This year seems to have flown by faster than the others. I think it’s because I now have a toddler in the house (read: Tony is One!)!

Last year around this time, Tony was only 3-months-old and we went to Miami with our friends to celebrate the new year. We stayed up until well past midnight carrying Tony in an ergo baby carrier and as he slept on us, Roby and I watched fireworks on the beach. It was one of the most memorable nights of my life.

In a few days, we’ll be ringing in 2018 and I have a feeling it will be pretty different from last year. We’ll put Tony to bed in his crib in the early evening, then we’ll come downstairs to ring in the new year with loved ones. Then hopefully we will spend New Years Day by waking up early and chasing around our rambunctious little man. It’ll probably and hopefully be pretty ordinary and I’m looking so forward to it.

Before I share the top 10 recipes from this past year (according to my google analytics), I want to say thank you for hanging out with me here in my little corner of the internet. THANK YOU. Thank you for supporting my blog and most of all, for trusting my recipes with your families and friends.
