top 12 from 2012

happy new year’s!!

hope everyone had a safe and good one… and hopefully now you’re eating all the good luck foods (pork, greens, black eyed peas, noodles, etc.).

i can’t believe that another year has passed. i don’t like this getting older and having time fly by. it’s a tad ridiculous.

i know that this post is technically a year late but i figure what better way to kick off the new year than by looking back at the top 6 viewed recipes and my top 6 recipes.


ok on with it!


chicken parm meatballs

can i just say that this was the most viewed recipe and there is definitely a reason why? i mean meatballs are delicious but stuff it with cheese and have it taste like chicken parm? to.die.for.
