What was Hot in 2015

Top 10 posts from 2015 on Eat It & Say YumCan you believe that another year is coming to an end?!  2015 just flew by.  And I’m so excited for 2016!  I have big dreams for the coming year, and I am even going to write those dreams down and make them goals.

(Make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post, there is a reader survey and a chance to WIN!)

Looking back on this past year, it was a big one for this little blog of mine.  I doubled my traffic from the previous year.  I met LOTS of amazing bloggers and learned a lot.  I attended my first blog conference.  I feel like I shared some more creative recipes than I might have shared in the past.  (Which is good for me, I usually feel like I’m not a creative person.)  I contributed to two other blogs.  I created The Monthly Ingredient Challenge.  I pretty much blew away my efforts from 2014.

So, thanks for being here for all of that!

Now, here are my top 10 most popular posts in 2015.
