Top 25 Skinny Recipes 2012

As we come to the year’s end, I can’t help but reflect on the highs and lows of 2012, and try to imagine what 2013 will bring. Today is a gift we should grasp with both hands, and remember that our faith, family, health, our home sweet homes, and the food on our table are all we really need; everything else in life is a bonus!

But looking back, there were lots of Skinnytaste highlights this year, the top of the list was a book deal with Clarkson Potter – woohoo!!! I’ve been really busy testing new recipes for the cookbook, then comes the photography, book design, cover designs, lots of fun stuff ahead! I promise to keep you posted as I go through the process.

I can’t express how grateful and thankful
I am for all of your support. Your comments, emails, the photos you share with me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook mean so much to me. Nothing would be possible without you.
