HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I can’t believe it’s already 2015 ~ 2014 was quite a year, so 2015 has a lot to live up to.

We already discussed YOUR favorite recipes of 2014 – now I want to share MY favorite recipes from 2014… in no particular order. Not because I didn’t try to rank them, I did. I just could not for the life of me figure out which order to put them in because I loved them all SO MUCH.

If you didn’t get around to making any of these in 2014, I definitely recommend putting them on your to-do list for this year!

The savories…

This red lentil daal – it’s so warm and hearty and perfect for cold winter nights.

My pain au Thanksgiving – which could really be stuffed with anything – but were SO GOOD that we basically ended up consuming an entire batch of croissants in less than week…

These grain-free stuffed peppers from when I was on my whole 30 kick – I’ve been making them consistently ever since!

This over the top lasagna grilled cheese – because if you haven’t eaten your pasta inside of bread, then you haven’t truly lived.

If just looking at that grilled cheese is making your arteries clog, try this Creamless Creamy Cauliflower Soup – it is to DIE for.

 The sweets….

Pumpkin Cookies & Cream Ice Cream – which was an extremely difficult choice. Runners up included the salted caramel pumpkin roll and pumpkin pie bread pudding, but I didn’t want to pumpkin-out the list…

The almond-stuffed galette de rois which, trust me, tastes WAAAAY better than it looks.

I have returned from my holiday slumber!

Didn’t mean to disappear on you guys but something wonderful happened over the holidays…. I … unplugged. I closed the laptop, stepped away from the computer, and spent time with our family. And it was glorious.

But now I’m back to give you a proper send-off. 2014 was a big deal around here, namely because Mr. Eats and I got hitched. On the blog side, I didn’t post as much as I would have liked (which is evident by 2013 posts dominating the “best of” list for 2014 :) – oops!) and probably didn’t fulfill any of my 2014 blog resolutions, but that’s what 2015 is for – right?

I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings ~ and to share it with all of you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
