Special of the Day: Best Bites 2015

22 Dec Special of the Day: Best Bites 2015

Best Bites 2015

Sydne George Special of the DayDecember truly is one of my favorite months of the year, for so many different reasons, one of which is that the end of the year yields itself to thoughtful reflection, a chance to look back and count your blessings. The past year of 2015 has afforded me the opportunity to slow down and savor the fragile and precious gift that life presents to us each and every day we wake up healthy and happy.

It has been great fun for me to flip back through the past twelve months to curate a collection of culinary treasures, a highlight reel of recipes to revisit from 2015 to share with you in today’s Special of the Day column.

Some recipes just stand out, so worth a second look~ they are just too good to forget. Such is the case with this week’s assemblage, recipes I have revisited on numerous occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed making time and time again.

Highlighting a collection of go-to favorites you just might find yourself making again and again, I give you this week’s Special of the Day~ Best Bites 2015. Happy cooking!
