Top 10 recipes of 2016

    And just like that 2016 is over. Doesn’t it feel like it only started yesterday? This was not a great year for me, neither personally nor professionally. But in stead of talking about it, I want to focus on 2017. I hope the new year will bring new hope and happiness for everyone around me. Here’s hoping for a better tomorrow!


    And before the year ends, I wanted to do a recap of top 10 recipes of the year on Cook With Manali. I do it every year just to see what everyone liked the most on the blog. Honestly it’s very hard to predict which recipes would work and which wouldn’t. I had so many recipes failures in the kitchen this year, in fact I documented a lot of them and even wanted to do a post but then once I got busy with my family issues, I kind of lost track of it. Hopefully I will do it next year end. So yeah there were tons of failures, tears, kitchen mishaps and what not. But everything was so worth it the end, only because I get to do what I love the most – spend time in the kitchen! And for this I want to thank all of you for your constant support and encouragement that has kept me going. Wishing you all a wonderful 2017. I hope the year brings with itself joy, happiness, success and most importantly good health for all of you. I will see you guys next year!

    And now here are the top 10 recipes of 2016 on Cook With Manali.
