As I searched through the archives of 2012 to come up with the best recipes of the year, I realized just what a crazy year it was! My life was in transition and my cooking was too. But I did keep cooking, and that’s all that really counts.
To wrap up 2012, I offer you the dishes that I know I’ll make in 2013 and beyond. If you have any favorites that I didn’t list, feel free to mention them in the comments.
Thanks, as always, for reading! Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2013.
