HAPPY NEW YEAR dear readers! I hope you all enjoyed the recipes we have shared in 2022. Here’s a recap of our BEST 25 Recipes of 2022. We all know how 2022 has been quite a challenge for many of us so much so that many of us want to say goodbye to it as fast as we could. That is perfectly understandable.
But, by God’s grace, we have survived the most difficult year (perhaps for some of us). While I don’t necessarily dwell on the past, this time – just briefly – I would for a good reason. I want to remember the good times that still happened in 2022.
Despite all the many crazy things that went on, we still managed to continue blogging, develop some recipes, earn a bit of money and yes, we stayed alive! I am quite thankful and grateful for this. I wish to thank you all as well for kindly supporting us through this year and beyond. Let’s pray and hope for a better year in 2023!
In the meantime, I hope you all enjoyed the recipes we shared in 2021. Here’s a recap of our Best 22 Recipes for 2023.
