Follower Favorites of 2016

All month-long I’m planning to do some reflecting in my personal life, professional life, and yep, here on the blog. I’ve never been a big fan of setting new year’s resolutions -mostly because I can’t keep them. But, also I feel like we tend to get so caught up in setting new goals that we miss the chance to slow down and take a look back at all the good that’s happened over the last 12 months, think about how we’ve grown, and give ourselves a bit of credit for all the hard work we’ve done.

So, as a part of my reflection back on 2016, I thought my readers might appreciate a roundup of recipes that folks just like you have enjoyed. These posts have been liked and shared the most during 2016, which tells me that I’m doing something right! 😉

What I see is that you guys love your sweets! It also seems like you’re with me in wanting recipes that are not super complicated. What’s not to love about recipes that come together easily (sometimes even just in one bowl or one pan)?! I’m glad that we’re on the same page because ya’ never know, ya’ know?

For the upcoming months, I plan to bring you more of what you love. In return, I simply ask that you do the same for me. And, what I would love is for you to follow the blog, pin the recipes, share with your friends, or just leave feedback by commenting or liking my posts. This stuff is suuuuper helpful to me because it helps me see what my followers are interested in so that I can keep sharing recipes that you’ll love.

I hope you enjoy this recipe roundup below made up of paleo, gluten-free, and even some vegan recipes. After all, you guys decided which recipes made it here!
