As the year draws to a close, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the most popular recipes of 2011. Happy New Year, and thanks for reading and supporting this blog over the last year!
1. Fruit Rollups. Who knew people were so nostalgic about these little beauties? Not only did this post get more than triple the traffic of any other recipe, it also became my most-read post of all time. And with good reason – they are awesome!
2. Baked Zucchini Chips. The popular parenting site Babble linked to this recipe, and thus a star is born. These paper-thin nibblies are definitely addictive, and great for kids of all ages. And with all the spice combinations you can sprinkle over them, you’ll never get bored whipping up a batch.
3. Coconut Macaroons. Who doesn’t love a good vegan macaroon? It’s hard to find fault with coconut, vanilla and sugar, and it looks like everyone else agrees with that!
4. Gluten-free, Vegan Chocolate Layer Cake. Everyone cemented their food comas with this cake at last year’s Christmas dinner. I hadn’t heard of the well-known site The Kitchn until they linked to this recipe, and I’m glad they did! They’re a great resource for recipes, kitchen tips and products.
5. Tempeh bacon. I was surprised to discover that this post was in the top five. Not because the recipe wasn’t delicious, because it was amazing. I simply didn’t realize it received a high amount of traffic. I can’t recall the last time I made it – and this is a good reminder to cook it again.
