Whhhoa there. Are we really about to say goodbye to 2014? …Gah, my father was right. Time really does go by faster as you get older…
Soooo, what are your plans for the New Year? I would honestly love to hear all about it! ..and I mean, both – the big night New Year’s Eve and for 2015 in general. My husband and I will be ushering in the new year at a Billy Joel concert! …don’t hate. It is highly usual for us to do something so cool. But this year we are, and I am beyond excited because this is on my husband’s bucket list. He is going to be so happy, so I will be so happy. ..and it’s Billy Joel.
And then my big plans for this year so far are really right around the corner – two half ironman triathlons. The first is January 10th in Naples, FL. I will be ~75% ready. The other is in Ocala in March. So my goal is to survive the first one, and race the hell outta the second 🙂
Do you do resolutions? I do. So, for 2015 I am pledging to myself to drop the last 5 lbs I’ve been trying to shed since my son was born (he’s 4), be more consistent in my triathlon training for the bike, register for a full marathon, not miss church, drink more water, and wash my face before I go to bed. …is it a bad sign that I am eating a whole turkey leg typing this?
Any-hoots, to end this year and usher in the next, I thought I’d put together a little collection of the recipes that rocked this blog in 2014. Some are old favorites – and God knows you all love cheesy breads – and others are healthy recipes that resonated well and really took off. When I looked up the numbers to see what had done well this year, I was really happy because it is a good mix of spurge and healthy and that’s how I want it to be. Balance.
So here they are folks. Erica’s Recipes Best Recipes of 2014. And whether you will splurge or be healthy, I wish for you all a happy, safe, and fulfilling 2015!
BONUS! Here are a couple runner-ups that were so close that it didn’t feel right not giving them a virtual high-five too.
