Best Recipes of 2012

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.

One thought on “Best Recipes of 2012

  1. For such a busy year, we certainly managed many cooking experiments and a few projects but it always amazes me how much I learn from you about new things such as egg replacers and ethnic foods and spices. Looking forward to 2013!
