Favorite Recipes from 2012

This past Tuesday (December 25th, 2012 – Christmas day), my blog celebrated her 2nd birthday. I am so glad I have been able to grow and develop just like my blog has. These past two years have been filled with opportunities to share with you some of my favorite recipes that grasp all different types of diets and lifestyles. I love making a mess in my kitchen. This past year, I’ve even struck out towards more main-meal type foods. This coming year I hope to do even more of that, as I’ll be in a dorm having fun with my crock-pot  In a few hours it will be a new year, and with that I hope to continue to share my love of baking while also making my recipe section more balanced. This past year has been a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see what this new years brings for me, my schooling, and my blog. 🙂
