We’re back! After six lazy days in my hometown of Wichita, Kansas spent sleeping in, endlessly grazing on my mom’s epic collection of snacks, and being happily spoiled by grammy’s unending spread of meals, Ben, Teddy, and I are back home in Milwaukee. We made the 11.5 hour drive yesterday, which was unexpectedly extended an extra hour by our running out of gas about 40 miles from home. Fortunately, Ben’s dad graciously came to our rescue…and I had a gallon-size baggie of chocolate covered pretzels to sustain us while we awaited his arrival.
While we were chilling on the side of the road (literally—it was 3 degrees outside), I passed the time gathering information for one of my favorite annual traditions: a list of YOUR favorite recipes of the year.
I love creating this list and seeing which recipes resonated with you most. Of the nearly 170 new recipes I posted here in 2017, these were your Top 11.
Top 11? I know. It should be Top 10. BUT I couldn’t resist one last delicious addition.
Are any of your favorite recipes on the list? I’d love to hear about them in the comments section below!
