best of 2016!

The best of 2016 is here- Happy New Year!

This past year has been pretty amazing. We have been busy creating, renovating and loving on our new Puppy, Brody. 

Eating amazing food, enjoying the outdoors and taking time for ourselves all were a priority in 2016.  
Looking ahead to 2017 we are excited to continue our home renovations (kitchen is up next!), create and share beautiful food with you, define our home style, not take life to seriously and enjoy every minute of everyday with intent. 

Today I am sharing with you the top ten most viewed recipes on SMBP - many of these also make my all time favorites list.

I wish you all a happy, healthy + delicious New Year!

By far this was the most viewed post of 2016 - I mean, it is a pretty awesome way to kick off the New Year

Soup in the Summer // you said YES! This is the perfect summer soup for those chilly + rainy cold summer days

We make this sandwich at least  once a month- super easy and absolutely delish

I looooove oatmeal for breakfast- apparently so do you. Take my word for it, date sugar will change your life.

This cheesecake is my go to dessert for big family gatherings- there is never a slice leftover

The perfect way to put your waffle iron to use

Hands down, my favorite pasta dish of the year. Super Simple + customizable 

Such a fun weekend recipe 

One pan, easy clean up, super flavorful

The absolute best that Summer has to offer



  1. All best recepies at one place, love the idea. 2016 was best, wishes 2017 will be excellent. Thanks

  2. Thanks for the post. It looks very yummy.

    I'm very fond of cooking different kinds of dishes however, I usually cut or hurt myself during cooking. My friend recommended NoCry Microdot Cut Resistant Gloves and I it works for me. Now I can cook whenever I want.

    Here's the website:

  3. Can’t wait to make this. My family will love this.

  4. There is no doubt these are best of 2016 but I am looking for some Halloween food for my kids. Actually I am Dissertation Service provider and I am looking for some new recipes.

  5. Your thumbnails are always as beautiful as the recipe themselves. I would suggest that you make a creative slogan for yourself as well and get rid of the current one.


Thanks for stopping by - your comments make my day!
