My 9 Favorite Recipes from 2019

Happy Monday everyone!  It's my final week of work for the year (slash decade) and I'm pumped!  It's been a hectic, roller-coaster of a year, so I'm excited to see what 2020 has to bring.

In my second post recapping the year (check out my favorite purchases here), I'm sharing my favorite recipes that I tried out.  I love to cook, and these ones took the cake!

Carrot Lox

Time-intensive, but the taste and texture is SO close to smoked salmon for a fraction of the price and is vegan!

No Knead Bread

Super easy method to cook bread, and it turns out delicious every time.
