Ok I know, it’s technically 2016 now… I got all turned around with my calendar and realized I had to share the elderflower sparkler with you yesterday, because sharing it today would be too late! I mean, unless you’re still up and partying from New Year’s Eve festivities last night… And if you are, more power to you. I’m too old for that at this point (says the girl who hasn’t had a solid night’s sleep in over a week… we’ll just play pretend, mmkay?). Another year in the books means it’s time for my annual round-up of the best things I made in 2015. Not in any order per usual and I’m officially STARVING after putting this list together. I can’t believe these were all this year, it feels like they were years and years ago. Maybe I cook too much…. hahahaha, nah! Get your Pinterest boards ready folks, it’s time to make your 2016 “to cook” lists!
