I look forward to this post all year – looking to see what the top recipes of 2016 are and wishing you all happy holidays! In this post I’ll share some highlights of the year, but most of all, I want to say THANK YOU to all of you amazing readers, thank you for reading my blog, making my recipes, and engaging online, you are truly the best!!!
Top recipesThis year, the SweetPhi blog turned 5 years old (wow – still cannot believe I’ve been blogging for 5 + years!), and many exciting things happened. My cookbook Fast & Easy Five Ingredient Recipes: A Cookbook for Busy People  was published in July and to this day, I am beyond grateful and humbled by the response. THANK  YOU to everyone who purchased the book and has supported my work. I still love looking at all the creations you make from the book and share on social media using the #sweetphicookbook hashtag!)

I’d love to know – what are your holiday plans?! Leave a comment and let me know! Last year I took a little break over the holidays and really found it refreshing, so I’m going to take a break again this year to unplug and recharge. You can still find me on Snapchat or follow me on Instagram for the latest updates, I’d love to stay connected! I’ll be back the first week in January with a bunch of new recipes and travel adventures!
