All in one place, here are the most popular recipe posts from The Forked Spoon in 2017!
Hello! and Happy New Year, you guys!
How was your year, btw? Good, bad, over it? Honestly, I feel like 2017 was pretty fantastic. As with every year, there was its fair share of ups and downs, but overall, it was a keeper. Assuming health stays good, I have a feeling 2018 will be even better.
Ok, guys, who here do resolutions? Or, perhaps this is a better question- who here has set a resolution and stuck to it?
I don’t do resolutions. They’re too black and white. I do, however, set mini goals. Typically goals that are short-term and things that I actually think I can achieve. This year I am challenging myself to start the year off right with a healthier, more balanced diet (through the month of January). Less booze, sugar, and carbs. Less, not NONE. I also hope to continue improving my photography skills and start pumping out one new video a week. More than anything I hope to do a better job of unplugging when I’m with my family. I only get a handful of hours a day with my son, and even though he is usually driving me bonkers, he will only be this little once.
That’s all. The rest is food. Here are the most popular recipe posts from The Forked Spoon in 2017! Have you tried any?
