One of my favorite post each year is my top picks. I’m running a little late this year, but I did not want to miss out on the opportunity to share my favorite recipes from 2016 with you!
It’s obvious at first glance that I enjoy cheese, chipotle peppers, sugar, and food with a Mexican flair. Because I am trying new recipes much of the time, I often prepare a recipe only once. However, my top picks for 2016 are recipes that I make over and over again! These are all dishes that my family and I enjoy. These are the foods that I crave.
I think it would be fun to sit down one day and figure out my ALL-TIME favorite NJSD recipes!! Maybe that will be an upcoming post!
In the meantime, visit or revisit these fabulous recipes from 2016. Simply click on the recipe title below to be redirected to the original post.
