Ahhh that break was lovely!

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, be that surrounded by family and friends or just some time to relax.

I've had a hectic time and after weeks of planning Christmas Day and Boxing Day, they were over in a flash.

At this time of the year I like to look back on which of this year's recipes have been popular. Of course there are older recipes that continue to pull in a lot more visitors, but I like to look at my more current recipes. As well as an interesting exercise it lets me see what kind of recipes people are enjoying this. Do leave me a comment if you've particularly enjoyed some of my recipes this year. I know some of you just pop by and don't like to leave a comment, but don't be shy, you can use the anonymous option in the comment box if you don't want to use your name.

So here we go, the most popular recipes of 2016 on Tinned Tomatoes.
