In what’s become an annual tradition, I narrow down a year’s worth of recipes into a few favorites. This is by no means a complete list (technically, every recipe I post is a favorite in one way or another), but I did my best to pick and choose my absolute favorites, the recipes I remember long after they are done and gone. I tell you, this gets harder and harder every year.
What can I say about 2014? I’m sad to see it go. We saw so many wonderful places and ate so many amazing things this year… it’s hard to narrow it all down into a few sentences. That said, as nice as it is reminiscing about the year that was, I find myself even more excited for the year to come.
2015… I have a feeling you’re going to be a good one!
