Best of 2014

It’s always funny to me to look back on the year and compare my expectations with the reality. In so many ways, both wonderful and terrible, this year was not what I expected. I’ve grown a lot, and I’m comfortable saying that I’ve come out on the other side a better person. And, looking back on what we cooked in 2014, it’s evident that despite whatever else was going on in our world we ate very well. So, without further ado, the Best of B&S: 2014 Edition!
