Top Ten Recipes of 2016
In just a few days it will be another year down in the books! 2016 was a big one for me. I traveled to some of the most beautiful places in the world, took the blog full-time, said goodbye to my baby Coco, and started a new chapter with our move to Georgia.
Thinking about what lies ahead in 2017 has me filled with hope. It’s been a dream of mine to be able to focus all of my attention on this site and I look forward to finally having that privilege this year. I want to pour all of my heart and soul into continuing to create recipes that are easy and approachable while still being healthy and delicious. I want to improve my photography, enhance usability of this site, and venture into video more so that you get a chance to see what goes on behind the computer screen.
Most of all, I want to make sure that I’m providing value and connecting with YOU, my precious readers. Without this community my site would be nothing. I am so grateful that you take the time to check in with me and tell me how much you enjoy this labor of love. Knowing that I have a wonderful group of people out there who share my passion for health brings me so much comfort. Thank you for all that you do to help make this site possible. I wish you all of the happiness and joyful memories that life can bring in the new year. Cheers to 2017!
“Made this soup last week and the entire family was raving about it. Thanks for the amazing recipe!! Will definitely be making again soon!!!”
“I made this for lunch today and it was easy and super delicious! Just loved it! And for my afternoon snack, I made your Blueberry Sunshine Smoothie. It hit the spot. Thanks for all you hard work. I’m really reaping the deliciousness of it all!”
“These are my new favorite thing to eat! They also make a great sandwich sliced cold. Can’t wait to try more off your recipes!”
“This is one of my top 10 favorite go-to recipes; it’s savory, full of authentic flavors, healthy, and delicious! I usually pair it with whole wheat naan, or add-in some fried tofu–SO GOOD. Thanks for the awesome recipes!”
“I made these last night, and they taste like a mix between a peanut butter cup and a O’Henry. I am hoping this will help with my dieting, to help keep me on track. These taste absolutely amazing!”
“Yum! This was amazing, for both lunch and dinner – the guac really adds the magic touch. I used pinto beans instead of black beans and I thought it was perfect (I find black beans a bit … dry?). Thank you for the delicious recipe!”
“I had saved this recipe of yours a while back, and finally made it spur-of-the-moment for dinner tonight… I loved it, and so did my husband! I didn’t have the roasted red peppers on hand, so I’m going out tonight to pick some up so that I can make the sauce to go with the leftovers. Thank you for creating this amazing recipe! It was simple to make and super delicious!”
“I made these to have for lunches during the work week and they were amazing! All I had to do was dump it into a bowl, top with avocado and enjoy. Thank you for the awesome recipe!”
“Love overnight oats and this recipe is delicious. I completed the survey and made up another batch of oats using strawberries and blueberries!!”
Made these muffins this past week as I have a daughter,sister, niece and daughter in law that are all gluten free. They were a huge hit and I will be making another batch today …. They are begging me for more! Thanks for a delicious recipe!
