This is the time of year for all the “best of” lists. Best movies of the year. Best songs. Best dressed. So why not a “Best Recipes” list, too?
Truth? It was hard to choose. My recipes become a little like my babies, and everyone knows you can’t choose favorites where children are concerned.  But I figure recipes don’t have feelings, so here goes:

1. Wild Blueberry Yogurt Parfait with Maple Seed Brittle

2. Whole-Grain Blender Kefir Pancakes

3. Peanut Butter and Raspberry Toaster Tarts

4. Turkey Taco Salad with Cumin Lime Dressing

5. Lighter New England-Style Shrimp Rolls

7. Carrot Miso Ginger Dressing

8. Cheesy Baked Pumpkin Pasta with Kale and Bacon

9. Wild Blueberry Balsamic Sheet Pan Chicken

10. Instant Pot Chicken in Salsa Verde

11. Chocolate Hemp Amaze Bars

12. Cran-Raspberry Pecan Tart with Whole-Grain Crust

Honorable Mention: 

Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate-Dipped Cookies
