A Year in Food 2014

Welp, here we are, 2014 was a great year! Since this is my first full year of blogging, I thought I might start an annual tradition: A year in food. This Highlights my favorite post from each month of the year. I hope you enjoy them, I certainly enjoyed sharing them and look forward to another wonderful year of food and fun!

January – Crackeroni Salad

I’ve been making this FOREVER! I get in trouble if I don’t bring it on camping trips of bbq’s in the summer. It’s super addictive, which is how it got the silly name.

February – Chicken Bacon Ranch Mac

I love that this is made with real cheese, stays creamy, and keeps after being refrigerated. I almost always go back for seconds when I make this one.
