I started sharing my recipes and treat ideas on this site in January 2011 and can't believe it has been 6 years already!  I began making videos for my recipes on my YouTube channel at the very end of 2013, a little over 3 years ago, and it has been so much fun interacting with more and more of you on my channel and through social media. This year, I got the site a little makeover, just in time for the holidays, with a pretty new recipe index, fancy little slider on my homepage and a nice mobile version to go along with it. So, based on the most viewed recipes of the year, I bring you the Lindsay Ann Bakes, Best of 2016

If you don't already, be sure to follow me on social media and say hi!

Best of 2016!
