It’s here – my top 18 favorite recipes from 2018! These delicious recipes are the ones that I tested to perfection, made for myself countless times, and were my favorite ones to share with all of you. 

Waldorf tuna salad and healthy taco soup

I recently shared your 18 favorite recipes from 2018 and now I’m sharing my family’s personal favorites from the year.

Actually, I’m terrible at picking favorites!

I had such a hard time whittling things down this year, I thought I would share with you the recipes of this year that my family truly could not get enough of and the ones I continue to make again and again.

These are the ones that have made it into our “rotation.” The ones that my picky kiddos will eat. The breakfast and lunch recipes that I whip up constantly and the ones that I would be serving if you came over for dinner on a normal weeknight. The ones that always, magically, deliciously hit the spot.

These ones.  

So, if you happen to be looking for some inspiration for the new year ahead, take a look through the list below. And if you decide to give any of these recipes a try, leave a comment and let me know, and remember to keep sharing your creations on Instagram and tag @kimscravings! Cheers to an epic 2018 full of incredible recipes, and even more amazing ones coming up in 2019.
