My Favorites of 2013 ❤

Wow, how did 2013 come and go already!?  It truly is crazy how quickly time passes.  It sure has been full of lots of great food, that I do know!  As always, I left the year thinking about my favorite moments… my favorite travels, my favorite laughs with friends, sweet family moments, and of course… favorite dishes.  So, in honor of good food, I’ve put together my favorite recipes from the blog in 2013.  Makes me look forward to all that will come in 2014… each year, I learn more about nutrition, find new things I love about cooking (didn’t think that was possible, but yep… loving more and more all the time), and find more excitement in blogging all about it with you!  Can’t wait to see what this next year brings!! :)
