Hi friends!

It’s so hard to believe that 2018 is coming to an end. It’s been an amazing ride this year.

Buns In My Oven has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to all of you clicking around and sharing my recipes with your friends and family. I appreciate your love so much!

I also launched a second blog this year and it has been so much fun to watch it grow and hear from readers over there too! If you’re interested, you can check it out at Just in time for diet season. 😉

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in real quick and share the most popular recipes from this year. I do a recap post like this every year and y’all seem to enjoy it, so I’m keeping the tradition alive!

Ready for the top 10 recipes of 2018?
