Hi guys! I hope you’ve had an amazing week spent with good food, good people, and the best times. Tony and I are spending just a couple more days in Australia before we head to Hawaii for New Year’s Eve. Do you have big NYE plans? Thinking of laying low?

Before you hit the town this weekend I wanted to share a post that I’ve been SO excited to show you guys. I’m featuring YOU! That’s right, I rounded up a bunch of amazing Ambitious Kitchen recipes that you’ve made this year. I stuck with AK recipes from 2017, and looked all over Instagram and our Ambitious Community Facebook group to see all of the goodness that you’ve been cooking up.

I was so excited to go back and check out all of your creations this year. Tons of them were my favorites from the year, too! It was hard to narrow these picks down to just ____. I swear I wanted to share hundreds! You guys were definitely loving my Tahini Brownies and Cinnamon Rolls from this year, and my best-ever Healthy Turkey Chili (from 2015) had a high repeat performance.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

I wanted to do this round up because nothing makes me happier than seeing you guys make these recipes. I get so excited when I check out the #ambitiouskitchen tag on Instagram, and when you tag me with your latest creation.

I truly couldn’t be doing this without you. So, huge THANK YOU to all of you for making Ambitious Kitchen possible.

Alright it’s Friday and we’ve got more celebrating to do – am I right?! Take a scroll and see the Ambitious Kitchen community in action. Enjoy xo!
