I always enjoy looking back on our favorite recipes from the past year, the ones that we would make over and over again. Though there are often many—and this year was no different—I try to keep the list down to twelve. So here they are, our family’s favorite recipes from 2012. We hope you enjoy them, and we look forward to sharing more recipes with you in 2013!
This recipe for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies came from the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer book, a wonderful book with plenty of recipes for bake sales. And the proceeds go to the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer organization.
