August 19th is National Honey Bee Day and I think this is a great reason to select and share some of my all-time favorite honey recipes. As you can probably guess from the name of this website, I am a big fan of honey. I have talked to multiple bee keepers and visited countless hives to learn as much as I can about nature’s sweetest bounty and it’s creator.
I have even let bees crawl all over me – some say I’m crazy for doing this but I have learned enough to lose much of my fear of being stung. Don’t swat at the bees – they’re just looking for their honey.
We have yet to become apiary owners ourselves but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying all things honey. I have created many honey recipes over the years of this blog and I have favorites of course. Below you will find what I believe are the best honey recipes!
