I’ve said it over, and over: 2014 is my favorite. I had an incredible year, and trust me, I can’t wait to tell you all about it in detail for the seventeenth time, but right now we’re going to talk about YOU, and the things you love. And also about me because I made them. 😉 So without further ado, here are you top 10 favorite recipes from 2014:
It’s two of my very favorite foods!! Sweet potatoes and cilantro! I’m a huge fan of black bean burgers, and these were out of this world good–sweet and savory, and a nice different take on a traditional veggie burger.
I freaking loved this meal. It’s not my recipe–it comes from my friend Anetta, and so I don’t mind telling you just how brilliant it is. Creamy, hearty and comforting, but totally healthy. It’s the perfect sneakily healthy dinner option.
EEEEE!!!! I am SO glad this dip made it into the top 10! I don’t like to play favorites, but this was just over the top, knock your socks off good! I mean, with that much cheese, how can it be bad? It’s so easy to make, and we ended up eating dip for dinner a few nights in a row. 😉
SWEET POTATOES!!! I’m so glad someone out there shares my love. This recipe inspired like 7 bajillion other stuffed sweet potato recipes that I made this year because it was so good and so ridiculously easy. Seriously, I did nothing but stack things. No wonder other people like it. Chances are you have about as much patience for complicated recipes as I do. 😉
I actually had no idea these were so popular! I’ve made them so many times, and I love that they are a gluten-free and vegan cookie with no flour blends, no foreign ingredients–just a few ingredients that almost everyone keeps at home. And they are soooo soft, chewy and chocolate-y!
My very favorite iced coffee!!! So many people tell me they make this at home all the time. It has a natural creaminess and smoothness that make it just irresistible. These were also some of my favorite photos of the year.
Drippy, chocolate-y,sweet and creamy Nutella made at home with no weird ingredients! It is seriously so easy, and although it’s still a dessert spread, it is so much healthier than buying it at the store. Plus it tastes so much better, if ya ask me!
My friend Emily would always make deviled eggs with avocado every time I would go to her house, and I always ate, like, 17 too many, so I knew I had to create something similar for the blog. I freaking love guacamole, and I love deviled eggs–it’s a match made in heaven. Plus, they’re pretty healthy with no mayo!
AKA super addicting chocolate peanut butter goodness. These come together in minutes, and they really do taste like cookie dough! I hate when people take healthy things and call them “brownies” or “cookie dough” when you taste them and you’re like “Ummmm that is not a brownie!”, but these actually do taste like cookie dough. They were also my most popular food photo on Instagram!
Okay, I have a confession. I still borderline hate the photos I got of this dish. I freaking LOVE the taste, and I fought Steve over the leftovers, but I spent a good hour on the photos, and I’m still not happy with them, but I guess it just goes to show that you guys care more about a great recipe (it is!) than a perfect photo, and I’m so glad this baby took off this year because it is so delicious and healthy!
And because they win out every year it seems by leaps and bounds, here are your top 3 favorite recipes of all time:
