My Favourite Recipes of 2010

97 comments

2010 was a year with some awesome eating! I ate, I tested recipes, and I ate some more. This past year showed me that the sky is the limit when adapting recipes to be free of animal products. I pushed my creativity, experimented with new foods, and I had more variety in my diet than I think I have ever had.

Here are my favourite recipes in 2010….enjoy!

Mmm, I’m hungry.

Eric and I were supposed to go to a costume party tonight, but Eric is sick with a terrible flu so it looks like I will be nursing him back to health tonight. I may have to feed him a Green Monster or two! Poor guy, he is in rough shape.

I hope you have a great New Year’s Eve! I’m going to get all motherly on you and tell you to be safe and plan ahead for a DD! I want you all back in one piece tomorrow.

Coming up, a delicious New Year’s meal to kick off 2011….it’s in my belly right now and it is wonderful. Mmm.

Happy New Year’s!!!

All I can say is: When is that cookbook in stores? :)

Can’t wait to try a few more out. I have to tell you, you talked about an open-faced sandwich you often made (toast, hummus, tomato paste, basil, tomato). I thought it sounded strange but tried it one day. I added some avocado and sprouts and I have to tell you – LOVED it. I ate it almost every day for 2 months! So, you have me convinced. I try many of your recipes (and love them) and would most definitely buy your cookbook!

All the best in 2011!

Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010

Wow Im so surprised that you remembered that sandwich…that was a while back in the summer I think :) Glad you enjoyed it!

I have to say the pumpkin gingerbread with spiced frosting is THE BEST recipe of yours I’ve tried!

I sent your blog to one of my mom’s coworkers who has become vegan. He’s not sure whether he likes your recipes or photographs better! Also, I made the pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls for Christmas. AMAZING!

Happy New Year Angela!
Just want to thank you for the inspiration and positivity you gave to me this past year through your blog (I didn’t realize I’ve been a devoted reader for over a year now!).
One of the most positive things I took from you this year was ‘Size Healthy’ – I have found it easier to focus on how I feel and fit into my clothes than the clothes number itself – I thank you for that!!!
Hope Eric gets better soon.

Happy New Year to you too! I’m defenitely ready for a fresh start. I made your pb & jam pizza but with whole wheat pastry flour instead and it was delicious. I’m going back to college sunday so I won’t be able to cook that much but I enjoyed trying out your recipes. I can’t wait to come back to try your recipes some more. :)

Jackie de Crinis December 31, 2010

Happy New Year to you too! Sorry Eric is sick…hope it’s just a 24 hour bug. One of the great highs of 2010 was finding your website and making one of your recipes almost everyday. Some of the highlights for me were your Pumpkin Banana Oat Cookies (which I’ve made about a dozen different ways and has become my breakfast staple). I made your hummus today (fantastic). My family favorite were the chocolate covered raw cookie dough balls (they were gone in one sitting. Your recipes, photos, blogs & website has been nothing short of inspirational…and OF COURSE I will buy the recipe book! :)

Hi,

Great resolution list Angela. I got myself a new journal for 2011 and I found one that warmed my heart and stood for my motto this year. It said “Peace is always beautiful” by Walt Whitman. It also kind of goes along with trusting myself because when I don’t trust my opinions and value as a person I am full of anxiety about what people are thinking of me and whether I’m good enough or pretty enough or skinny enough. If I can let go of this I’ll radiate peace and I don’t have to worry about being the fairest in the land because I am beautiful. Thanks for your daily inspiration! Happy New Year!

Hi Angela! I just found your blog and–I LOVE IT! Your recipes are ingenious and all sound/look DELICIOUS.
I am wondering how I could follow your blog. Since I am on blogger…is there any way for me to follow you through blogger (instead of facebook, etc.)? Or would I have to make a separate account?
Thanks! Hope you are having a great New Years!
:D

LOVE the list! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes!
Thank you so much for all the work you put into these. The pictures and narration really help and make the recipe come alive. :)
I wanted to make a comment on the Vegan Mac N Cheese. I made it today- first Vegan recipe ever for me! I used almonds because I did not have cashews. I soaked them and took the skins off. I’m not sure it came out as creamy as it was supposed to but it was still delicious! I only had a small food processor so I had to do things in stages. I just wanted to let you know. :)
Thank you so much for sharing these. I am so excited to have some awesome recipes to work with as I transition my eating lifestyle.
((HUGS))
