Top 10 Recipes of 2017

One of my favorite things to do at the end of each year is to take some time to reflect on all of the memories that were made. 2017 was a big one for me since it was the first year that I ran this blog full-time. I still have to pinch myself when people ask me what I do for a living. Is this really my job?

The truth is that I wouldn’t be able to do it without all of you, my loyal and supportive readers. I’m so grateful that you take the time to make my recipes and write to let me know how much you love them. It is truly what keeps me going everyday, so thank you!

Without further adieu, here are the most popular recipes that were published this year. I hope you find something you like and I wish you all the best for a happy and healthy 2018!


#1 Healthy Zucchini Corn Fritters

“I just made the fritters for myself and my husband. This is our first day of being Vegan. It is wonderful! Easy and filling! My husband said that if this is the kind of food he’ll be eating, he won’t miss meat.” -Pat


#2  One-Pot Vegetable Thai Red Curry

“Hi Sarah! It’s not winter any more down here in Florida, but I made this tonight anyway. It’s delicious! I added a can of garbonzo beans with the veggies. I was surprised that you used the entire small jar of curry paste, but I followed your lead and was not disappointed. The curry had just the right flavor! Then I went out to Amazon and ordered a case of those jars of curry paste! I’m a little out of control, don’t you think? ;) Keep the curry recipes coming! The curry chickpea “meatballs” are next.” -Connie
