And a Few Other Recipes Thrown in for Fun
We're back! And we're really excited about 2014!
Not even a week ago we were sitting on a beach in Thailand, talking about all kinds of things we'd like to do here on The Bitten Word this year.
There's much to share about what we saw and ate in Southeast Asia, but we wanted to kick off the new year with a quick look back at 2013, with Our 10 Favorite Food Magazine Recipes of 2013.
Here they are, in no particular order. You can click the images to visit the posts, and a read a brief write-up of each below.
