My Favorites From 2018
Some of my favorite recipes didn’t make the Top 10 list for 2018:
- Dessert charcuterie platter: What could be better than a plentiful dessert platter, where everyone gets to pick and choose their favorite dessert finger foods like chocolate, cherries, and nuts? Nothing, that’s what!
- Make-ahead egg cups: I make these all the time for breakfast. They’re simple – and there’s nothing wrong with that.
- Epic monster cookies: I choose my adjectives carefully. These monster cookies are epic in that they’re peculiarly crunchy and chewy at the same time, they’re very peanut-buttery, and they’re LOADED with M&Ms.
