Countdown to 2016: Wild Card

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! To start off 2016 with a bang, my food blogging friends and I are choosing their own category of recipes to share today!
The Countdown to 2016 begins December 26 - if you have a food blog, feel free to join in! #Countdownto2016 #best

Last year, this category was called "Pick Your Poison" and this year, I decided to change it to "Wild Card". I felt it fit a little better :) What that means is that the following bloggers are picking a category they would like to share with the best recipes of 2015 for that category. I am going to share my top 5 favorite recipes I posted in 2015 and a recipe in each category that I am excited to make in 2016 from other bloggers!! I wanted to say thank you once again to my fellow bloggers who joined in - it was so much fun to round up our 2015 recipes and bring in the new year that way. Thank you for joining me!! I hope everyone has a wonderful, prosperous, positive 2016 full of good happenings, people, and, of course, FOOD! :)

The following five recipes are MY favorites of 2015. It was hard to narrow it down, but I did it!! There really are no words for these five other than how I picked them was by going through and being like "OMG. I NEED THAT RIGHT NOW!!" I would eat literally any of these recipes right this second.
