See ya, 2016! This year was a tough one for me and for so many others, I’ve heard. May 2017 be better to all of us! Here are the top ten recipes from 2016. Looking through them is almost like looking through a scrapbook, because they remind me of the circumstances surrounding each one.
I worked harder this year than ever, and I’m proud of these recipes and the cookbook that I made this year. Since the cookbook took so much time away from the blog, I published fewer recipes here so I could maintain my quality standards. I’m excited to share many more delicious concoctions for you all next year. What would you like to see? What are you craving for 2017? Please let me know! I’m always listening and adding your suggestions to my lists.
“OH MY GOODNESS. I stumbled upon your page on Pinterest and am so happy I did! I made these tonight and my husband and I devoured them! It was nearly impossible to stop at 2 each.. I resisted but he had 3! The enchilada sauce makes all the difference in the world. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe with us! xo” – Elizabeth W.
“These are some of the fluffiest, most apple-icious muffins I’ve ever tasted! Made them with half KAF gluten free flour & half oat flour. Came out amazing!” – Amanda
“I’ve made this three times now and I think I love it more each time I make it! Thank you for such an awesome recipe – this delicious casserole has become a regular dinner at my house. And I love the picture of Cookie eating the broccoli stem – my dog loves it too! Looking forward to trying more of your recipes.” – Sara
“I made this with 2 cups sliced banana and 1/2 cup mixed berries on top! It was superb! Thank you. I have loved many of your recipes. (We make the sweet potato and black bean tacos all the time!)” – Lauren
“Super easy to make and delicious, to boot! I forgot to pick up carrots so mine was cabbage only. Didn’t matter, my taste buds were beyond pleased.” – Sondra
“This soup is amazing! It will definitely be put in our weekly rotation this winter. This was quick to put together, healthy, and there are so many ways to add on ingredients like the avocado, radishes, cheese, Greek yogurt, etc for extra tastiness. Thank you…your recipes are quickly becoming favorites in this house!” – Martha
“This is quite possibly the best recipe I’ve made this year! I’d eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. I left out the white wine (I drank it instead ;) ) and added about 2 generous handfuls of spinach with the butternut squash at the end. The wilted greens, creamy rice, and nutty squash made the absolute perfect meal. Usually, I’m not satisfied with a one-bowl dinner, but this required no sides. Perfect on its own. Thanks!” – Alyssa
“I think I made this cake at least 10 times with pecans or chocolate chips or just plain and it is always so delicious!! I love how easy it is to make but still super healthy.” – Cecilia
“This pizza is incredible! Your dough recipe is now my go-to pizza dough. So easy and quick. I used walnuts instead of pecans and added some sun-dried tomatoes on top and my whole family is obsessed with this pizza. The slices freeze and reheat really well too. Thanks!” – Sarah
“I have made this on several occasions. It is always a hit!! I have taken the liberty of adding feta cheese after the quinoa has chilled a bit. Other than that, I follow the recipe exactly, and it always comes out great!” – Barbara
