As we enter into a new year, I thought it would be fun to share the best recipes of 2013.

Top 25 Best Recipes of 2013 from It's a Keeper

We had a wonderful holiday this year.  I got everything I wanted for Christmas — an awesome kid, who is filled with the Christmas spirit, an amazing husband who takes care of us all year long and a wonderful family to share the holiday with. Being surrounded by family and friends is the best part of the holiday season.

I love watching the magic of the holidays through my 7 year-old son’s eyes.  I wish I could bottle it up and keep it forever.  I really do cherish all of these moments.  I have everything I need and want and feel truly blessed.

As I take this time to reflect, I want to thank YOU.  Thank you for being loyal followers and sticking with me as I try new recipes. Thank you for your continued support which allows me to do what I love every single day.  Thank you for your feedback, emails, questions and comments that you share with me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.  I just love hearing about your cooking experiences and getting new recipes.  Keep ’em coming!
