It’s that time of year!  The clock is winding down on 2016 and it’s time to reflect back on the year.

A year filled with delicious memories, where I realized for the second year running one very obvious fact:  slow cooker recipes reign supreme!  FIVE of the top ten recipes on this list are slow cooker recipes!  I hear you loud and clear: keep ’em coming.  Will do.

Not only were the slow cooker recipes popular this year (as they were last year), but also the make ahead work lunch recipes were very popular.  I’m so glad to see this because make ahead/meal prep lunch recipes are one of my favorite posts…they are SO convenient!

Well, let’s check these recipes out, shall we?
