Happy New Year everyone, and happy Friday! I took extra two days off work to give me two full weeks off during my Christmas break, and I’m so glad that I did! Not only that it is freaking cold outside, say single digits temperature, and even minus degrees weather wind chill, I really love the luxury of having two full weeks off. So it’s that time of that year that I like to have my annual top recipes in review. I love doing this, because it gives me time to reflect on the recipes that I tried and shared this past year. This may sound like a cliche, but I really can’t believe that this is my fifth blogging year, going on my sixth year. My personal milestone was that we expanded our family, and welcome our second child, a baby boy, back in May earlier this year (he’ll be EIGHT months in the next couple of weeks!!). With this, I took a couple of breaks from blogging and sharing my recipes with you. But I was back on the saddle with a few recipes here and there, and I was grateful for my readers who still faithfully leave comments occasionally, and to my family and friends who email me and tell me all of the recipes they’ve tried from the blog. And of course, if there is anything that you’d like me to add and share, please shoot me an email, and I’d be happy to review those. Have a great weekend everyone, and stay warm!
