Top 10 Recipes of 2015

Top 10 Recipe of 2015 on thefirstyearblog.comWhoa!! 2015 is ending and I feel bittersweet. It was our BEST year yet! I have been overwhelmed with thankfulness for the support I have received – for the comments, likes, shares, e-mails, and for the reader’s who give life to my blog by coming back continually and sharing it with people they know!

I would have never thought that my tiny little wordpress blog would grow into something I am so passionate about. As I look back over the success we’d had, I don’t want that success to be attributed to me, but to Him. God is the story teller and I am just the writer, and while I might not mention Him in every blog post, He is the breath behind the creativity.

The top 10 most popular recipes from 2015 are…
