You liked. You shared. You tagged. You Instagrammed. You tweeted. These are the top loved recipes of 2017 that YOU loved the most!
This is one of those posts that always brings a smile to my face and honestly, helps me more than you’ll ever know. This gives me an idea on what you guys are and are not into. I get insight on what types of recipes you want to see and maybe less of ones that you don’t. I have a TON of recipes for 2018 already – yes, even 1 day into the year and a bunch of ideas for new recipes thanks to looking at these results. My notes include:
♥ More Pressure Cooker recipes
♥ More Sheet Pan Recipes
♥ Dear Lord woman, give us more pizza recipes (loved that request!)
♥ More family-style meals and healthy weekly meal prep ideas
Got it and that’s what I plan on doing!
Last year was SUCH a fun year for me. I started working with a bunch of new clients while creating even more deliciousness with those that have been with me since the beginning. I wish you guys could see my notebooks of recipes that I still have yet to share. I literally have enough written up (and most photos taken) to issue a cookbook. Speaking of… yes, I really, REALLY want to do that but I need a publisher for that as I’m not sure how to go about doing it myself. So if you’re in the business or have connections, let’s work together!
