Best of the Blog 2016

It’s round about this time each year that I try to carve out a few moments to reflect on what the past 12 months have looked like and what’s to come in the next 12. It was a big year of launches for me, both personally and professionally. I launched a new design for Mom’s Kitchen Handbook, a second cookbook, and my first kid into college. To be honest, I’m feeling a little tuckered out, trying to gather my energy to plunge into what’s stacking up to be a busy January. Until then, I thought I’d do as I’ve done for the past few years and share the Best of the Blog. Using my own right-brain algorithm of blog traffic, reader comments, and popularity on social media channels such as Pinterest and Instagram, these are the posts that have generated the most interest. I’d love to hear what has resonated with you this year, too, so feel free to share in the comments below.

Here’s to the close of 2016. Thanks for spending some time of your time here with me.

And cheers to a hopeful, peaceful, and healthy 2017 ahead.

Hi Katie!
Thank you so much for all your yummy and healthy inspirations this year. I am excited to see what you have in store for us in 2017. I have both your cookbooks and LOVE them. Now that you have breakfast and lunch covered, I am hoping for a dinner one 🙂
