25 Best Recipes of 2012

Is anyone else experiences whiplash at the sheer speed of 2012’s passing? I know I am. It’s gone by a ferocious pace and the impending 2013 shows no signs of passing any slower.

 It has been a year of not just tasty treats, but big life milestones (getting married, NBD.) and I am so thrilled to have been able to share every joy, success, failure, baking flop and ridiculous Huck photo with you all along the way. So many of these recipes have become instant traditions in our house and I hope that they will for you as well.
 
This year has covered everything from breakfast, to mac and cheese, football food, to Biscoff and you name it in between. There are no heroes here, just yoga pants.  Here are my favorite recipes of 2012, sure to please everyone!
 
I am wish you and yours the happiest of holidays and hope that 2013 is one for the record books.  Thank you so much for all of your endless support and love. Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.
