This has been one wild ride of a year.

January 1, 2016 was officially my first day without a Real Job.

It’s not that I wasn’t working — it’s just that I wasn’t ever really going to be guaranteed a pay cheque, which is kind of something I like to rely on.

I have worked harder this year than I have ever worked before, and I did it, for the most part, with a 1 year old and a 4 year old by my side under my feet.

But I have never regretted it. This blog — my business — has grown by leaps and bounds and, the strange thing is, I continue to receive those pay cheques (wondering how??).

My goal for 2017 is to take a step back, which is completely, painfully against my nature. My only regret this past year is not spending more time with my kids. So I’m asking you to forgive me if it’s a couple days before I get to your comments or your emails, or if things are a little slower around here. I’ve got lots of puzzles and coloring books and story times to tend to!

So! I’m not going to hold out on you any longer. Here are the top 10 most popular recipes of 2016!
