My Favorite Recipes and DIY Homemade Household posts from 2022!

These are the recipes that I had the most fun with! They are also the recipes that I got to flex my creative muscles with. Most of them are from more recent posts and for good reason, it took a lot of energy to move from Montana to Wyoming and cooking was largely a necessity during that time with little creativity involved. We still ate good, but cooking wasn't as fun! Once settled in my new kitchen, I could call upon my love of creativity in the kitchen, and these are my favorites for 2022!
