CtS Best Recipes of 2012
As I sit down this morning to think about New Year’s resolutions, those things that I hope will be different about this year, there isn’t much that comes to mind. I want to exercise a bit more and eat a bit healthier (stay tuned for some healthified recipes from me). I want to find more time to work on my blog and maybe even start pitching some magazines or at least some online publications.
But things are pretty good and I don’t think I will dare to change much.
I have a bright and funny 4 year old, a very smiley and sweet 1 year old and an intelligent and supportive husband. I feel cozy and at home in our house (although we still haven’t hung any pictures on the wall despite having moved here over a year ago), I’m getting used to living in Florida and I feel like I’m finally getting more connected to the people around me.
So I’m not going to make any New Year’s resolutions. I’m just going to spend some time looking back over the year and being grateful for all the creativity I’ve managed to access, all the new readers and cooks who have found me, all the amazing writers, photographers and recipe developers that I’ve met or found, the success that I’ve been having and all the wonderful people that I’m lucky enough to have in my life both virtually and physically.
Part of that looking back involves remembering the food that I’ve eaten. If you’re curious about that, here are my best recipes of 2012 (based on the number of views from readers like you).
