Best of Bake or Break 2016

The most popular, most pinned, most saved, most liked recipes from 2016! - Bake or Break

I bet we’d all agree that 2016 has been quite the year. Good or bad, it’s time to wrap it up and move on to 2017.

I spent so much of 2015 (and 2014, too) focused on my cookbook that it was nice to put all my efforts into BoB. That resulted in over 100 recipes I shared with all of you. These 12 recipes are the most shared, pinned, liked, and tweeted by all of you.

Thanks to each of you for being here! Enjoy!
