The Best of 2016

Share all the delicious recipes!

I can’t believe another year has passed! I have been blogging for almost two years and it’s still something that makes me so happy. Sharing recipes, cooking, baking, “virtually meeting” you the wonderful readers, and reading your comments. The only reason this blog has been so successful this past year is because of you all! From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you! I started this blog at a dark time in my life and it truly has helped me overcome that. Thank you for trying the recipes, sharing with your friends, liking and sharing my recipes on Pinterest and Facebook. You guys really are the best ♥ ♥ ♥

The top 10 recipes on Together as Family of 2016

1. {NO FLOUR} MONSTER COOKIE BARS– Still the #1 recipe on my blog for two years. These get rave reviews and everybody loves them! They’re a favorite at my house.

2. CREAMY BEEF NOODLE BAKE– For the second year in a row this is the #2 recipe! It’s easy, simple, but so delicious! It’s also very versatile.

3. TOMATO BEEF COUNTRY CASSEROLE– This is making it’s debut in the top 10. I posted it only a couple of months ago but it’s quickly become a top recipe here on the blog. It seems like you all like easy, simple, and delicious food just like me!

4. HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING– This. Stuff. Is. Awesome! Homemade, easy, and tastes 1 million percent better than store bought.

5. PUMPKIN PIE PECAN COBBLER– I shared this recipe clear back in November of 2015 but it has become one of the most popular recipes in just a matter of the last few months. It’s a super sweet, decadent, pumpkin treat that is perfect with a scoop of ice cream.

6. BANANA PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BREAD– This became an instant hit with readers from the day I posted it. So insanely delicious and moist. I’ve maybe been known to make this year round….

7. OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP PEANUT BUTTER BARS– These also made the top 10 of 2015. I am so glad they are on the list again because these bars are the best!

8. AVOCADO DIP– If you love avocado (like me!) you need this dip in your life. So yummy, addicting, and it’s only 5 ingredients that you stir together and then it’s ready to eat.

9. OREO CREAM PIE– Both my kids asked for this as their birthday cakes. I think that’s enough said. You should just make it.

10. SEVEN CAN CHICKEN TACO SOUP– This recipe was just posted 3 weeks ago and it’s already in the top 10! Seriously, it’s 7 cans + some spices and you have a delicious, 30-minute meal. Don’t forget the toppings; cheese, sour cream, avocado chunks, and tortilla chips are our favorites.

Thank You for another great year here on Together as Family! I will be back January 1st with more recipes. My kids have been on Christmas break so I have been taking a break from the blog and spending time with them. I will see you next year!

Oh, and I should give a warning: I am going sugar-free for the month of January. Eeeeek! Can I do it?!? I hope so. It’s kind of crazy that I will be going sugar-free seeing as how I am a food blogger. So, prepare yourselves for healthier, sugar free recipes in January. It will be mostly dinner recipes. I hate all those crazy, ultra healthy, expensive ingredients so don’t worry, my recipes will still be the same just no dessert and sweet treats will be posted. Because I won’t be eating them (sad face….). 

Share all the delicious recipes!
