Happy Saturday, everyone! Wow. It’s the last day of 2022 and what a year it has been.
True enough, my mom and I have been blogging for a little over four years now, but 2022 was a HUGE accomplishment for us. Not only did our blog grow, but we did something we’ve never been able to do before.
We published 3 new recipes every single week, while updating some of our older content. Then, come holiday’s we published 4-6 times a week. This December, except this last week (we needed a little break!), we posted 6 new recipes leading up to Christmas.
That’s 182 brand new recipes on the blog this year alone. We also updated 18 of our older, but still favorite recipes.
In total, that’s 200 recipes that you all have baked, mixed, and enjoyed in the year that’s been 2022.
We couldn’t have done any of it without you. With each and every one of you that read our posts, share our recipes, give star ratings, comment, subscribe to our email, and follow us on social. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to do any of this.
So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for letting us do what we love and share our passion.
Now, lets see what the most popular recipe of 2022 was! Oh, and be sure to let us know if YOUR favorite recipe made it into this list, as well as just let us know what your favorite recipe has been. We love hearing from you! Happy New Year! 🎊
