These are the MOST POPULAR Recipes on Fox and Briar in 2018! I included December 2017 on this list because they really don’t have enough time to gain popularity in the year they are posted.

This was a huge year for me personally, as we welcomed our baby fox to the family in April. I took a few months off in order to spend time with my baby, and after eight months I am still figuring out this whole work at home mom thing. I still managed to post about 55 recipes this year, and these are the ones you loved the most. Be sure to come back tomorrow and see MY top 15 favorite recipes of the year!
