It’s hard to believe that 2013 is coming to an end. This year has been a whirlwind for me both personally and professionally. I started a blog, I quit a job, I ditched the plan and embraced the change. Somewhere in between I baked and cooked up a storm, learned new ways to move my body and ate a copious amount of breakfast food. As the year draws to a close I thought it might be fun to recap the highlights through food. Based on my analytics here are your favourite recipes from 2013!
