Your Best Recipes of December 2011

by Spicie Foodie on December 28, 2011

Another year comes to a close, and what a YBR year it has been. YBR turned one this year. This monthly event that started off small and has grown into one of the most popular foodie event of the month. I never imagined that one year later it would have grown to this. But none of it would have been possible without you. You lovely YBR participants and supporters. Thank you so much for making YBR possible and for sharing your scrumptious recipes every month. Cheers to a great YBR year ahead! I can’t wait to host you this coming year. Hugs and best wishes to each and everyone of you.
All my best,
Nancy aka Spicie Foodie

See you next year!
