This will be my last post of 2016, and I can hardly believe it’s the end of another year.  I started this blog over 4 years ago, and I’ve learned more than I ever thought possible.  I began thinking of this blog as a business last year, and this year it’s seen so much growth from a reader standpoint and monetarily.  I’m so happy to be able to call this my livelihood, as unconventional as it is.  So many people still don’t understand what I do, but you do, and that’s what makes this all possible. 🙂

Before I divulge the Top 10 Recipes of 2016, I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for following along here with me.  I know there are countless, wonderful food blogs out there, and the fact that you’ve chosen to subscribe/follow me in some way humbles me.   Nothing makes me happier than sharing recipes and possibly inspiring people to create them in their homes…I’m truly doing what I love.

And now, here are the Top 10 Recipes of 21016:

10.  Grilled Lemon Pesto Chicken Kebabs.

1. Chai Spiced Chia Overnight Oats.  I started the year off with these because overnight oats were a favorite in 2015, so don’t be surprised what you see at the beginning of 2017.  You love overnight oats…and so do I. 🙂
