I can’t believe it!   Today I am posting my 1000th post on Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks!  When I first started posting it was more of a hobby and I only posted 2 or 3 times a week.  Three years later I’m posting almost everyday, have made some great brand relationships, and have a ton of blogger friends that I talk to daily online and many of whom I’ve met in person!  Starting a food blog has made me more outgoing and really gives me a sense of accomplishment.

I thought hard about what I wanted to do to celebrate my 1000th post and at first I thought of doing a giveaway but I just did a ton of giveaways in August for my blogiversary so I nixed that idea.  Then I thought about doing a round up of party foods to celebrate using recipes from my favorite food blogger blogs.  But in the end, I realized this is a huge accomplishment and it’s due to the fact that I have some amazing readers who enjoy reading my content and seeing my posts.

So I have for you my 25 favorite recipe posts of all time!  I realize this is a very small portion of my food posts, but it would be fun to see!  There are several recipes I’ve been making steadily for the past few years and some that I recently just made.  I put the recipes into 5 different categories and my 5 favorites in each.  I hope you enjoy them and I really want to know, What is your favorite recipe on Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks?
