As I look back over the last year, I have to say 2013 has been an exciting year. I may not have been as consistent with my blogging, but it has been a full year. I have had many changes in the last year (which probably explains the lack of blogging). Still, I wouldn’t change a thing about the past year. Some highlights from the year are skiing with family in Utah (we are headed back in a couple of weeks), a 15 year anniversary trip to St. John with Jeffrey (I can’t wait to go back!), selling our house of 10 years (bittersweet) then moving into a lovely new home with an amazing kitchen. Our new house has provided much needed room for large group entertaining. I love cooking for others and am thinking about having cooking nights this coming year. So if you are in town stay tuned…it will be fun.

I always start off January thinking about getting more active and eating better. Who doesn’t? This year I am challenging myself to 100 days of Real Food’s Mini-Pledges. I can’t wait to share this journey with you. If you want to join me send me a message or comment and we can cheer each other along on this journey.

Thank you for bearing with me as I have adjusted to a mostly gluten free cooking style and for the lack of blogging consistently as we settle into our new home. I am taking this new year by the horns and can’t wait to share with you. It is going to be a great 2014 but before we begin I wanted to share with you the most popular posts of 2013. You have been quite faithful readers and I thank you!

The top 10 posts from 2013! I have to admit some of these surprise me and some have consistently made the top since I started blogging. Hope you enjoy looking back.
