The Best of 2015 - A Year in a Review

Yum
As we bring the year to a close, I want to thank each and everyone of you for following along.
I am not a computer genius, a professional photographer, trained chef nor a writer.  I have a passion for cooking and sharing recipes.  Simple recipes that not only taste fabulous but look ah-mazing is what excites me!  As my girls become older, I so love passing on those recipes to them as well as you.  So, writing this blog is a labor of love where I can share that same passion with you in hopes that you too make ordinary recipes just a little more extraordinary.  I thank you all so very much for your support and kind words.  I cannot wait for the foodie journey to continue in 2016.  You know there will be something new and different!  Ideas are swarming in my mind.  But, let's look back on A Sprinkle of This and That's Top 10 recipes of 2015!  See if your favorites are there.  I know some of my favorites made the list!

   
Starting at number 10 and working down to number 1, a sweet treat perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack!  You know an apple a day keeps the doctor away.  :)
