Year Recipe Recap

Hello friends and happy Friday!
I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving.  I know we had some delicious food and have so much to be thankful for this year.

Life has been pretty crazy lately between some travels, getting over bronchitis, pet sitting, getting things settled with the hubs new job & car, making plans for an upcoming market I will be selling my homemade beauty products at, settling travel plans for the holidays, studying, and attempting to get rest and workouts in! And I decided last night to have a small holiday party before all the craziness begins!
I have been doing lots of cooking, but not a whole lot of recipe creation (unless you count my first attempt at stuffing that turned out awesome), so I want to bring back some recipes today from earlier this year!

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for a Free for all themed week!

A Little Recipe Recap!

Hello Friends!
What a week it has been!  December! How is it the last month of 2015?
It has been another super packed week!  I {slowly} began my training for my next half marathon.  After taking some days off around Thanksgiving last week, it was a bit of a rude awakening! Oh my muscles are more sore than they have been a while!  I guess that is not always a bad thing though!

It was such a packed week that I am so thankful our Foodie Friday theme this week is a Recipe Recap! I am linking up once again with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit!!

Before I share a few of my favorite recipes from the past year, I first have a confession.  I somewhat dislike recipes!  Since I started cooking as a child, I have never really been fond of them.  I like gathering ideas and just going for it! I like to keep things really simple, and rarely make anything that has more than a few directions.  I am better about using recipes if I am baking, but that is about it. Being a part of Foodie Friday has really forced me to shift a little bit with my cooking with actually making recipes and being able to share them!  In the past I would post a fun meal I had made, but when someone would ask for the recipe I was usually lost with what to tell them.  I know that not everyone likes to cook without exact recipes.  So thank you Foodie Friday ladies for helping me to grow more in this area!
