best of 2012

Pin It
It is hard to believe that another year has come and gone so quickly. Many wonderful things have happened this year, I have met and become friends with loads of amazing people through blogging, I am truly one lucky girl, having each and everyone of you in my life has made me a better person. SMBP has been such an inspiring creative space for me, I have learned so much about the people that take the time to visit and leave a kind word or two. It is so much fun to look back and see how I have grown in terms of being more adventurous in the kitchen and photography, not only do I love creating and sharing recipes, I am equally in love with photographing the food and sharing those images with you too.

So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for visiting, inspiring me on a daily basis and well, just being absolutely wonderful & caring - you make the world a better, tastier & kinder place.

To wrap up this wonderful year here's

SMBP's BEST of 2012

this was one of my favorites too!

a truly healthy & tasty soup

Justin & I still make this a few times a month - so good!

crazy, CRAZY good

THANK YOU Richa for that crazy good salted caramel!

almost too pretty to eat

my first attempt at homemade ravioli - it was so worth it

homemade slider buns too- you can't go wrong with these

my favorite way to stuff a pepper

you can't go wrong with baked donuts, but three ways? Get outta town!
