Last year I did a round up of blog posts for the year, choosing the recipe with the most page views for each month your favourite, and the one that I like best, my favourite. I enjoyed writing the post and you, dear readers, seemed to enjoy it too. I've excluded those posts which had major giveaways as those do rather skew the page views! Many thanks to all who viewed and/or commented and to the hosts of all the challenges that I have entered.
|A soup of bacon and celeriac from The Kitchen Diaries II|
Your favourite post in January 2013 was the launch of Dish of the Month, a blog challenge to cook the recipes of Nigel Slater.

Hot n Smoky Cheese and Tomato Wraps, quick and easy to make and very tasty.
Virtual Christmas Party was a favourite post in December, I even won a prize from Pidy for these canapes!
Spiced Ginger Red Cabbage made with Mackays Spiced Ginger Preserve was even better than I expected.
