I have had so much fun this year sharing my favorite recipes and ideas with you all and your comments just make my day. I'm so happy I started this little hobby of mine and I can't wait to see where 2013 takes Semi Homemade Mom!

Here we go!

The 5th most visited post of the year... Cheesy Ranch Chicken Pasta

I'm not surprised at all with this one! The flavor in this cheesy ranch sauce is just amazing.

The 4th most visited post of the year... Slow Cooker Fresh Tomato Sauce

This one surprised me a little! I really love this one, mostly because of the ingredients. I definitely want to try making more fresh-ingredient recipes in the new year!

The 3rd most visited post of the year... Crockpot BBQ Chicken

First off, I definitely need to take an update picture of this one. :) I've made this MANY times this year, sometimes even adding potatoes wrapped in foil over the chicken. A complete, delicious meal in my favorite appliance ever!

The 2nd most visited post of the year... over 400,000 pageviews!

30 {One Step} Crock Pot Meals

Wow! This one went viral on Pinterest and it's no wonder to me. We love our Crock Pots, am I right? I'm making a point to try some more of the meals in this post in the coming year, stay tuned!

And the #1 Top Visited Post of 2012... over 500,000 pageviews!

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

I actually tried this recipe on a whim, I really liked the idea of a chicken taco filling made in the Crock Pot. This recipe is a winner and obviously you agree! If you haven't tried it yet, it's simply a must for families. So easy and absolutely delicious! 

Well, there you have it! I am truly humbled by how many of you stop by and read each day. I pray God gives you much health and happiness in the New Year. I'll leave you with a favorite verse...

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
-Romans 15:13
