2012 Favorites

It's almost 2013! I scrolled through every post from 2012 and chose a few of my favorite highlights. Here goes...
In July I entered the chili competition at the Orange County fair and came in third. I was both excited and completely surprised. You can get the recipe here.

This photo of my grandpa's purple pickled eggs (recipe here) was named Gourmet's Image of the Week

In February, I was lucky enough to share my DIY faux terrariums on Skunkboy Creatures.

I also got to share this DIY silhouette welcome mat on Pamplemousse 1983!

My Aunt Jen's extra spicy bloody mary recipe was featured over on My Girl Thursday at the beginning of the year.

I took a trip to Las Vegas and toured the Las Vegas Neon Museum. You can see more of the photos here.

I definitely tried my hand at quite a few recipes. Some of my favorites include these homemade chocolate brownies pictured above.

...and these sweet and crunchy hush puppies.

My mom and I went to Unique LA for the first time this year. I took a ton of photos and met some really great people.

Last but not least, I created my first e-book this year. I'm planning on making another one soon!

2012 was a pretty busy year. I can't wait to see what 2013 has to offer!
Happy New Year, everyone!
