Top 10 Recipes of 2013

As 2013 comes to a close, I’m reflecting on what a year it has been.  I must say, I don’t think I’ve ever anticipated a year quite like this next one.  I get to become a mom!  Although this blog is supposed to be about food and my favorite things, I just can’t help but share my excitement about this baby girl.  She has already changed me immensely.  She has made me more patient, grateful, and hopeful.  She has brought so much love and excitement into our house and she’s not even here yet.  In a year that was marked by the great loss of my grandma, I am all the more thankful for this little blessing kicking away in my belly.  Life is precious.  So what do you say, shall we make 2014 a great year?  I think so.

Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog this year; you all keep this little blog running.  As we say hello to a new year, let’s take a look at the Top 10 Spoonful Recipes of 2013, as viewed by you.
