Top 11 in 2011

2011 was a big year.



I began this blog at the end of 2010 (yes, I missed my blogiversary), and I cannot believe how much my life has evolved since.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the wonderful bloggers out there.  You have inspired me in so many ways – introducing me to new foods, pushing me to think of new flavor combinations, motivating fitness and healthy living by example and through kind comments.


Resolutions aren’t my cup ‘o tea – I like to tackle goals as I think of them throughout the year.

In lieu of posting those and in honor of a rockin’ 2011, I decided to list the top 11 posts for the year.


Often I see bloggers comment that they don’t necessarily agree with the top posts… but in this case I largely agree.  There are a couple of soups/stews not on the list – but you guys apparently like breakfast and dessert (and I have no room to judge)!  Out of these 11 my top 3 are #1, 2, and 7.

5. Coconut Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (with an overview on the benefits of coconut flour)

Thank you to everyone who has read this blog, left a comment, passed along my link, written an inspiring blog… I am honored to have you all in my life and wish nothing but the best for us all in 2012!


I stopped posting on weekends… but check back tomorrow for a special Saturday post that might come in handy this weekend.

If you are a blogger, are your “most viewed” recipes the one you like the most?

What is your biggest hope or goal for 2012?

    Thank you chica for some really great posts this year! I can think of some other posts of yours that I really loved (Like your “right to brag” one). I hope you have a fantastic New Years!

    Thanks for all the brilliant posts! Even though I’ve only started reading your blog, your recipes are definitely amazing. 😀 My biggest goal for 2012 is to run more, and as much as I can. As simple as that.

      Thank YOU! That is a massive compliment. You are so positive and I can’t tell you how glad I am to have found your blog in 2011.

    I have no idea what my top viewed recipes are, and honestly I only recently started posting recipes again so I’m not even gonna bother with looking, lol! 😉 I know quite a few people made my chickpea cookies though, so that’s probably the one that got the most views! I hope you have a wonderful and safe ringing in of the new year, lady!

    Out of these, I’m definitely going to have to say #2 and #5 look the most mouthwatering :-) Plus I’m a sucker for coconut & chia. SOO that might explain it 😉 I’m checking out the recipes now!

    I hope you have an amazing 2012. And I love that your’e not a resolution girl. Just keep plugging along and doing your thing! Proud of you :-)
