Your favorite posts of 2012 and a giveaway!

Reader Favorite Recipes of 2012 ♥

As 2012 comes to a close, I have to say that I feel like celebrating.  Lemon Sugar has grown so much this year – and I have to thank you, my readers, for your part in that.  If you weren’t helping to spread the word by sharing on social media, pinning on Pinterest, or tweeting on Twitter, my little food blog wouldn’t have grown the way it has.

So, thank you.  From the bottom of my heart.  To my family, who just reads because I make them, to my friends who are always supportive and encouraging, to my advertisers who put their faith in me and my readers and all of my new blogging friends – a million times, thank you.  Oh, and my husband?  He’s especially fantastic – he’s cleaned up my messes more times than I can count, and I can ALWAYS count on him for honest feedback.  So Mr. Lemon Sugar – thank you.

I calculated your favorite posts over the last year, and it was pretty fun to see what your favorites were.  I’ll be back soon with my personal favorites, too – so stay tuned for that.  Here we go:
