It’s hard to believe the New Year is almost here! As 2013 comes to a close, I’d like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you forÂ your support and all the wonderful comments throughout the year. Webicurean is a labor of love, but it wouldn’t be possible without the loyal readers who visit here each day. So, thank you, and I wish you all the best for 2014.
Rather than a single recipe today, I’m doing a round-up of the 13 most popular posts of 2013. It’s always fun to see which recipes get the most attention, and I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see my drunken chicken near the top of the list. Enjoy!
