Happy New Year’s Eve! What a whirlwind year it has been. Between writing a cookbook and finishing my bachelor’s degree, 2012 was better than I had ever expected. I’m so thrilled for 2013 which will be the year I complete culinary school and release my book. I’m also looking forward to dedicating much more time to Handle the Heat. According to Google Analytics, these recipes have been the most popular for 2012. Interestingly enough, many of them were written previous to 2012. My hope is that this time next year this list will include a bunch of new 2013 recipes!
