I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season this year!

I’ve never done one of these wrap-up posts, but I think they seem really fun so I’m going for it this year. 2017 has been a wonderful, exciting year in my personal life, and for this blog! I so appreciate all of you readers who take the time to look at my posts and bake my recipes. 

So, here’s the top 4 recipes from my blog this year- these are the posts that you guys loved the most in 2017! 

4. Celebration Cake– lightly sweet layers of vanilla pound cake with raspberry jam and chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream! I also got to share some exciting news about my upcoming book on this post, and it was wonderful to hear such support on social media from you all!

3. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Stuffed Monkey Bread– it’s exactly what it sounds like, and you should make it today if you haven’t already. I worked with Dion’s Pizza for this fantastic dessert recipe!

Top 4 Recipes of 2017!

So, I basically only have time to bake on the weekends. I work 60 hours most weeks, and so my days an evenings are always full. Weekends are my time for baking and personal blogging. Usually, I spend some time during the week when I can to plan out my baking for the weekend, and to plan out what will be going on the blog. 

Yes, I’m one of those people who becomes obsessed with pumpkin around this time of the year, and if I could be, I would do it all year round. But I will admit there’s something special about having something only at certain times during the year. It’s what makes fall so fall-like, just like there’s always something for summer and for winter along the same lines.
