Top 10 Recipes of 2013 - Readers Choice




  1. I obviously need to make some more of your smoothies in the new year!! They always look so great.

  2. So much deliciousness! Happy 2014 to you!

  3. I love these round ups of most popular recipes! So much yumminess I missed!! Happy New Year, Jen!!! xo

  4. I’m loving all of these “top recipes of the year” post from my favorite bloggers. It’s great to be able to go back through and see all of their greatest hits, especially if I didn’t discover the blog until later on in the year. The oatmeal cups are calling my name!

    Speaking of oatmeal, do you have any tips for making smoothies with oats? I’m going to start experimenting with that next week. I have old-fashioned oats which I’m hoping will work. Should I soak them first, or just throw them in? Any help would be appreciated!
