Top Recipes of 2015

I’m still kind of in shock that today is the last day of 2015.  How did this even happen?!  I really don’t know, but what I do know is that this year was definitely one of the best yet.  I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what’s in store for 2016 and where this little blog will go!

Since today is the last day of the year, I feel like it’s the perfect time to look back on which recipes made it into the top recipes of 2015.  A few of these recipes didn’t surprise me, but I think the recipe that took the #1 spot may actually surprise you!   So let’s get to it!

#1. Crockpot Turkey Chili

I think it’s safe to say that you all love pumpkin and the combination of lemons and berries just as much as I do!  I was also completely surprised that my Crockpot Turkey Chili took the number 1 spot this year.

The Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Squares held the top spot all year long (they’ve been pinned over 236,000 times, which completely blows my mind!), but this month it was finally knocked out of the top spot.  I’ve received so many positive reviews on my Crockpot Turkey Chili recipe, which makes me so happy because it’s a recipe I actually make all of the time.

And just because I love food so much, below are a few of my favorite recipes that didn’t make the list this year.

Before I end this post, I just have to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog and following along.  It’s such a wonderful feeling when I receive an e-mail from a reader, someone tags me in a recipe they’ve made, or someone just comments to say hi!  I truly appreciate all of you!

Here’s to a totally awesome 2016! 😉
