Here are the most popular recipes of 2016: Panning The Globe's Top Ten Recipes of the Year.
2016 ended with a flurry of activity that kept me busy in the kitchen and feeling happy and grateful. Over the past two weeks my empty nest has been filled up beyond capacity. My sons were all back home with friends and girlfriends in tow. I've had little time between shopping for food, cooking meals, dining, and cleaning up. It's been great. Our festivities culminated on New Year's Eve when Eddie and I hosted our annual end-of-the-year party. There's nothing like a houseful of family, great friends, delicious food, music, and good cheer to help usher in a new year.
The New Year is always inspires me to plan ahead but also to wrap things up assessing the year gone by. When I look back at Panning The Globe in 2016 I see a year of dishes that I absolutely loved, that I was excited to share with you, hoping that you would love them too. If my efforts have resulted in delicious meals and enjoyable occasions for you and your family and friends, I've succeeded in my mission.
Thank you for visiting Panning The Globe, cooking the recipes, commenting, emailing, connecting with me on social media... Making people happy with food is my goal, and my greatest thrill is when I hear from you that you tried one of my recipes and enjoyed it.

Hi Lisa! Happy new year to you and yours! I haven't tried any of these recipes yet, but I did make the excellent roast cauliflower pie and two of the potato recipes for thanksgiving!
Shrimp and feta looks particularly interesting.
