Before I start posting new recipes for the new year I wanted to reflect back on the past year and share some of My favorite recipes posted in 2016. I shared my list for reader favorites a few days ago and, whereas they are certainly good ones, I wanted to highlight a few of my personal favorites  as well. All of these recipes have been made multiple times over the past year and I highly recommend giving any one of them a try.
