Best of 2013

by Erin

It’s almost time to turn over another year, which means it’s time to reflect on this year that is coming to an end. Just like in past years, I have compiled a list of the most popular recipes posted during 2013. You guys have great taste, because many of the most viewed recipes were also favorites of mine. I was impressed and excited to see my chocolate chip cookie recipe on your list as it was only posted a little over 2 weeks ago! I went ahead and also did my own top 10 recipes other than the ones you were most drawn to.

P.S. Apparently I like taking vertically oriented photos.

I’m glad you did this round up because I’ve been slacking on reading others’ blogs, and now I see a ton more recipes I need to pin! Happy New Year, Erin :)

Great links, but anytime I can have a Stromboli for breakfast I’m totally ok with that! Have a great New Year!
