Top 10 Recipes of 2013 – Your favorites!

Happy New Year! It’s January 1, 2014 and I’m looking back on 2013. Wow, what a year. I went to New York, Austin, Chicago, back to New York, and went to Italy, Medford, Oregon, Portland and Las Vegas! Lots of travel and I got to meet so many amazing people.

I spoke at a couple of conferences including Food Blog Forum and Florida Blog Conference. I taped my first cooking demo for a television show, my face appeared in Bon Appetit magazine and I got attention from Time Magazine’s Tech Blog.

This little space of mine on the internet grew dramatically and I have all of you to thank for it. 2013 was a challenging year but also an amazing year. I can’t thank you all enough…seriously, thank you for visiting, commenting and encouraging me. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. I appreciate each and every one of you so so much.

Let’s go through your favorites for the year and a couple of mine…

    Every year around this time I look through your tasty soup type recipes because I always feel so lethargic after the heavier holiday fare. I added a little bit more banana to the pink power smoothie and really loved the sweetness it gave it lovely!
