Year-End Wrap-Up: My Favorites from 2013

As 2013 comes to an end, I thought I’d post some of my all-time favorite posts from the year. Many of you have only really gotten to know Claire Tastes within the past few months, which means that you may have missed a few of my earlier recipes. Going back to revisit some of the January and February posts is a time-warp, that’s for sure! For example, it’s hard to believe it was just a year ago that I made BBQ Chicken Pizza for the first time!

Whether a cook, blogger, or taster, I urge you- whoever you are and wherever you are- to take some time to reflect on the past year. All the triumphs, disappointments, new tastes and experiences, and memories with those you love the most. What a beautiful thing it is to be able to look back and reflect on how I have grown and just how blessed I am!
