Your favourites and mine from 2012

 It’s traditional to have a round up of blog posts for the year and there are a lot to choose from in 2012.  For each month I have chosen the recipe  with the most page views, your favourite, and the one that I like best, my favourite.  I’ve excluded those posts which had major giveaways as those do rather skew the page views!  Many thanks to all who viewed and/or commented  and to the hosts of all the challenges that I have entered.
