The Black Girl’s Top 10 Recipes of 2013

Looking back at this tumultuous year I have had, I was not surprised that I honestly could not remember a lot of the recipes I developed and published. I have been living day to day, not looking back nor too far forward. Just making sure my child is taken care of, the pets are taken care of. And finally, after more years than I can count, making sure I am taken care of.

I am going to book a massage for myself soon. I re-committed to healthier eating by actually attending my Weight Watchers meetings. I’m moving my body more, and plan to up my activity even more. But these are not New Years resolutions, just things I will do. I don’t believe in resolutions, because once someone breaks it they tend to abandon it. If you do it day by day, tomorrow is just another day if you mess up. You fall, you get up and keep going.

I went through my archive of recipes to revisit and remember this past year.  These 10 recipes were ones I really enjoyed making or eating. Ones I shared with friends and neighbors. Sometimes they were recipes of remembrance and loss.  But they are all delicious recipes.
