With 2015 almost coming to an end, it’s time to look back on what a wonderful year this has been! Pumpkin ‘N Spice has grown SO much this year, thanks to you! Without your support, kind words, emails, sharing your recipes on Instagram, following along on Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and testing my recipes, I would not be where I am today.
This blog started out as my hobby in 2014, and became my full-time job in the summer of 2015. I am truly blessed to have a job that I look forward to each and every day. Cooking, baking and sharing my recipes with you is my true passion, and I am extremely lucky to do what I love as my job. I work harder on this blog of mine than I’ve ever worked before, but it’s all worth it. So THANK YOU, friends!
I have some amazing projects, recipes and more that I can’t wait to share with you in 2016!
But now, let’s get down to business! Instead of sharing my most popular recipes of 2015 (if you subscribe to my email list, you will receive a free e-book of the Top 10 Recipes of 2015), I thought I would share with you my favorite recipes. These are dishes that I make over and over again; recipes that friends and family often request; or recipes that the hubster just can’t get enough of.
So grab that cup of coffee and enjoy my favorite recipes of 2015. I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year!
