2015 is nearly at an end and I had a great year at Love and Confections. Here is a list of the 10 most popular recipes this year as well as a recap of all the wonderful events I attended or hosted in 2015.
2015 was a busy year here at Love and Confections headquarters. I am blogging full-time and loving it. This past year, I worked with some great companies, like Stonyfield Yogurt, Bob’s Red Mill, Dixie Crystals, Nielsen-Massey Vanilla and so many more! I am grateful for all the experiences over the past year and I hope to continue to grow the blog in the next year to come.
My first big event of the year was the inaugural #VanillaWeek. I gathered 12 bloggers to celebrate our live of vanilla. We created some amazing recipes like Vanilla Macarons, Vanilla Bean Ladyfingers, and Vanilla Bean White Hot Chocolate.
May was busy with the 3rd annual #Brunchweek. I had so much fun working with this group of 30 bloggers. Over 115 delicious brunch recipes were created and we had an amazing giveaway! Some of my favorite recipes were my Lemon Blueberry Crepes, 60 Minute Cinnamon Rolls, and Whiskey Walnut Tart.
The first half of the year kept me busy by being on the Food & Wine Conference planning committee. The Food & Wine Conference at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort & Spa in July was spectacular. A great group of bloggers attended and I cannot wait for Food & Wine Conference 2016!
August was filled with fun days at the splashpad with #ToddlerLnC and a family beach vacation. ToddlerLnC had an amazing time at the beach and loved playing in the sand and water. I look forward to our yearly beach vacation and love watching her experience new things.
Late September was #pumpkinweek with 19 bloggers. I loved all the festive pumpkin recipes, especially my Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Pancakes with Bourbon Maple Syrup, and Pumpkin Almond Croissants. During the Fall, I also had a chance to attend The Americas Cake and Sugarcraft Fair, a Honey Nut Cheerios Living Billboard event and The Taste of Dr. Phillips.
December was eventful and full of love, family and friends. I can hardly believe that#toddlerlnc just turned 2! We had a fun Sophia the First themed party for her that family and friends attended. A few days after that, Mr l&c and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We visited family in North Carolina for Christmas and are planning a small get-together with friends tonight for New Year’s Eve. I hope you and your family have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
