The Top 10 Recipes of 2015

The Top 10 Recipes of 2015

With Walnut Pesto’s six month anniversary around the corner and the end of 2015 approaching, I thought it would be the ideal time to share my Top 10 recipes thus far. It has been a tasty year with many great moments for me, with the highlight being the inception of Walnut Pesto.

When I started the blog, I did not expect such a great response. I must thank each and every follower and subscriber for their support and interest. It has been so great meeting  some of you and hearing all the positive comments and praise. I hope to continue to inspire you in your cooking and baking and I hope to share many more delightful new creations in 2016.
