I can't believe that it's been a year since I started my adventure in blogging. It started out as something to dabble in after I got married and it's turned into something that I truly love and enjoy! I'm still amazed by how many new recipes we've tried and books I've read. Hezzi-D's has turned into something I'm proud of and I'm thankful for all my wonderful followers and fellow cooking bloggers.
Taking a look back at all the recipes I've made and books I've read I came up with 10 categories and picked my favorite in each one. So here they are in no particular order-my top 10 of my first year of blogging.
