Add Some Butter is three years old: five of the year’s best recipes!

I can’t believe I kept at this for three whole years. It’s insane! I’m actually quite proud of myself (I feel I can say that here – this is my safe place). Let’s hope I can keep going for a bit longer. 😀

The past year I bombarded you with breakfast recipes in the form of granola (homemade really is best), soup recipes to cover you for those cold days and I shared with you my newfound love for vegetarian cuisine.

There is however one thing that stands out when I look back at this year, and that is the start of our Cookbook Club. It is such a fun activity: cooking, laughing, eating and generally just having an amazing time. I would like to urge you to start a Cookbook Club in your community and let me know what you are up to.

Thank you to everyone who stops by my blog every now and then. 😀

Here are five of my favourite recipes of the past year:
