The Best of BEB in 2015: 20 of My Favorite Recipes

The Best of BEB in 2015: 20 of My Favorite Recipes |

Yesterday, I shared my annual roundup of the 10 most popular recipes on Brown Eyed Baker that were made during 2015. While many of those on that list were my favorites, there were also a ton of recipes that I fell in love with this year that didn’t make the cut. I want to share my personal favorites with you that weren’t on the previous list, so I put together this follow-up roundup, which features 20 of my favorites from 2015 – 10 sweet and 10 savory. It was agonizing to pare this list down; there are so many more recipes I want to include! These are the recipes that I made over and over, tried to hide from others, and cried when they were gone. Enjoy browsing the list, and feel free to share any recipe requests for 2016 in the comments below!
