I can barely believe that 2011 is coming to an end. It was one of those years where January feels like it was a lifetime ago, but in the blink of an eye, my vacation is coming to an end and I’m not quite sure I’ve accomplished everything I needed to. But alas, I think that is how life always is. The days that you want to last forever are gone as soon as you try to hold on to them, yet there are plenty of weeks that drag on and Friday evening seems to be a lifetime away.
If you told me January 1st where I’d be today, I don’t think I’d be surprised but I think I would be relieved. This blog is doing really well, and actually has kept me going through some of the rougher days throughout the year. Comments and emails from readers have been some definite highs. Matt and I made a significant move into a new apartment where I can walk around in the kitchen and don’t feel like I’m getting whiplash watching TV.
The best part of this year coming to an end is that I am really looking forward to the start of a new year. I’m not one to make resolutions, but I do like to come up with some goals for myself and big picture ideas of what I want the new year to look like. Some exciting things may be coming down the road for Keep It Sweet and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds. I’ll be putting in a lot of hard work and time, but I have a feeling it will be worth it. All I can say is, it is a good thing I have such supportive people in my life or I’d never have the guts to do half the things I want to.
And on that note, let’s take a look back at the year and your favorite recipes. If I’ve learned nothing else from this, I at least know that I’m not the only one around here that likes peanut butter and cookie dough!
3. Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Surprise (aka Best Dessert Ever)
And though some of those were my favorites too, here are the ten I picked that didn’t make that list:
Do you have any Keep It Sweet favorites? I’d love to hear feedback if you baked anything from the blog!
