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!!!

Gorgeous photos, you are very talented! Happy New Years to you!


Andrea December 31, 2010 at 1:32 pm

Happy New Year’s Eve :) This post reminds me that I still haven’t made that breakfast pizza… hmmm, maybe a good first breakfast of the New Year!


Camille December 31, 2010 at 1:34 pm

Thank you so much for this wrap up! You always have so many great recipes I want to make but I never know where to start! This should help :)


Kristy @ KristyRuns December 31, 2010 at 1:38 pm

Oh, Angela! Thank you for showing me the light (a.k.a. vegan overnight oats) this year. They really have changed my life. Also, being mostly vegan, you’ve proved that there are endless options for an animal-product-free lifestyle. :)


Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat December 31, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Aww poor Eric! GMs have definitely been an immune system-saver for me this winter. Out of all those recipes, I think the soft ginger cookies and pumpkin gingerbread with spiced buttercream were my faves! Happy New Year Ange, and all the best for 2011. Can’t wait to see what you accomplish – you’ve blown me away this year!


chelsey @ clean eating chelsey December 31, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Our plans are being smashed with my being sick as well. Those recipes look amazing! You have had such a great year Angela!


Joslyn @ missfitbliss December 31, 2010 at 1:48 pm

All I can say is: when is the restaurant opening??! This food all looks incredible! Happy New Year:)


Leigh December 31, 2010 at 1:48 pm

I am recently vegan (after a few years of toying with the idea). I’ll be making a lot of your recipes over the next few weeks. So far, I haven’t made one I didn’t love.

Hope Eric feels better! My Dh is sick too…it is really hitting him hard!


Lauren December 31, 2010 at 1:49 pm

I’m always inspired by your creative, delicious recipes & the pictures of them! It’s really easy to eat vegan & vegetarian with your recipes.


Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 31, 2010 at 1:52 pm

It’s nearly impossible to choose. I could never pick one. You have incredible recipes, Ange!


Darcy @ She Sings at the Table December 31, 2010 at 1:54 pm

…..aaaaaaaand now I’m starving :) Adding several of these to my favorites list for experimenting in 2011. Happy New Year to you and good luck with your patient!


Cathy Breit December 31, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I’ll take an order of those homemade salt and vinegar chips, please!
cathy b. @ brightbakes


Lili December 31, 2010 at 1:58 pm

i made your vegan gingerbread cake 3x! But I used a mixture of brown rice, coconut, and potatoe starch to make it gluten free, and it turned out wonderful!


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010 at 2:43 pm



Stephanie December 31, 2010 at 2:03 pm

Your peanut butter cookies should be on this list because HOLY COW are they amazing! I made them for Christmas (though I had to sub 1 cup for garbanzo flour because I ran out of spelt flout) and they were a huge hit! They were the most incredibly moist and delicious pb cookie I’ve ever had!

Have a Happy New Year!


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010 at 2:43 pm

haha thanks! Good to know they work with G flour

Kat December 31, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Gina December 31, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Hope Eric feels better soon!
Have a happy & healthy New Year :)


Tiffany @ Conor & Bella December 31, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Happy New Year!

I made both the Pumpkin Gingerbread with Spiced Buttercream and the Pumpkin Pie Brownie this year and they were both delicious! I’m so glad I found your blog. :)


Allison @ Food For Healing December 31, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Happy New Year! Hope Eric is feeling better soon, thats too bad. Take good care of him.

All that food has made me extremely hungry, you should have put up a warning first to eat before reading this post haha


ezzie December 31, 2010 at 2:11 pm

The garlic pumpkin knots are my favorite! Wait, the breakfast pizza looks pretty fantastic too… and so does the carrot cake oatmeal… I love all of them!!

Brenda December 31, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I love the idea of your breakfast pizza. I’m wondering if you could try doing it with an oatmeal crust instead?


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010 at 2:42 pm

im not sure, it might be worth a try!


Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine December 31, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Ohhhh this is such food porn. I have to say that the pumpkin pecan brownie pie might be my favorite recipe of 2010- I’ve made it three times and LOVE it!!

I will be the first to buy your cookbook. My friend was going to get me your cookbook for Christmas until she found out you do not have one yet!!!! I love the way you cook. I hope I have one of your cookbook under my tree in the near future.


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010 at 4:17 pm

Happy New Year Angela – thank you for all the incredibly recipes you created and shared this year. Your blog is my go-to reference for amazing dishes to impress my friends.



Traci(faithfulfoodiefashionista) December 31, 2010 at 3:44 pm

Happy New Year’s to you. I have so enjoyed keeping up with your blog over the past year and can’t wait for 2011 :)


Lauren at KeepItSweet December 31, 2010 at 3:49 pm

Aw, hope your husband feels better! Now, can you come and be my personal chef? Your food looks so amazing!


Katie December 31, 2010 at 3:57 pm

Those garlic knots….they look out of this world good. Must be the shiny, buttery coating on them, huh? :)


Sophia @ Raven Waves December 31, 2010 at 4:07 pm

The Peanut Butter, Jam, and Banana Breakfast Pizza looks amazing. That’s definitely something I’ll have to try next year, long with the carrot cake cookies! YUM!


bitt December 31, 2010 at 4:09 pm

It’s been a wonderful food year! Thanks for sharing with us. I appreciate your dedication to your blog and all the hard work that goes into it.

Just made the balsamic dressing and it was delicious! Also last week I made the blondies (with some adjustments to be gluten-free) and they were amazing!


Hong December 31, 2010 at 4:12 pm

Thank you for the year in review on your recipes! Definitely an inspiration for healthy eating for the incoming year. Happy New Year!!!


Suzanne December 31, 2010 at 4:56 pm

Happy New Year!


Katy (The Singing Runner) December 31, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Felicia (a taste of health with balance) December 31, 2010 at 5:32 pm

some of my favorite recipes this year were courtesy of YOU angela!! Especially the gingerbread pear three layer upside down cake! I can’t tell you how many comments I got to how delicious it was. Thank YOU for bringing such joy and delicious recipes to me and my family! Happy New Year!


Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday December 31, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Oh boy! Yum! I definitely bookmarked this page so I can go back and check out all the delicious things I should be making :D

hi Angela

happy new year!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Oh man I forgot about it!


GlendaM December 31, 2010 at 6:11 pm

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 at 6:55 pm

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


Red December 31, 2010 at 6:12 pm

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


Stephanie December 31, 2010 at 6:46 pm

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!


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 31, 2010 at 6:54 pm

heh thanks!


stacey-healthylife December 31, 2010 at 7:02 pm

Oh yes I remember all those, and they all look delicious.


Amalfi Girl (EatRunHaveFun) December 31, 2010 at 7:06 pm

Happy new year! I’m looking forward to going through all of these recipes and thinking about when I’ll make which…:)


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 31, 2010 at 7:24 pm

This was a great reminder of so many dishes I’ve been wanting to try! Now I don’t know which one to make first. ;)

Have a great NYE and I hope Eric feels better soon!


carlee December 31, 2010 at 7:30 pm

Your sooo creatvie Angela!
Off to my kitchen to make ALL those recipes! haha

Your recipes are my favorites! Happy New Year to you!


Sana December 31, 2010 at 7:56 pm

i really hope Eric feels better ASAP! congrats on an amazing and successful year with glo bakery and project foodbuzz!


Jennifer December 31, 2010 at 8:04 pm

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.


Cara Craves... December 31, 2010 at 8:22 pm

I could not choose one favorite!
I love all of your creations.
Happy New Year Angela!


Trish December 31, 2010 at 8:40 pm

Happy New Year, Angela. Your recipes all look so delicious and beautiful. Love the chocolate cherry bomb parfait. Wish all good things for you in 2011!


Alaina December 31, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Thank you for your recap!! 2011 will get off to a nice, delicious start for me :-)

Happy New Year!!


Lorin December 31, 2010 at 8:56 pm

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 at 9:40 pm

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! :)


littlemissunderstood December 31, 2010 at 11:14 pm

Just wanted to say I love your recipes and you really do glow!


amy December 31, 2010 at 11:42 pm

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!


Jo January 1, 2011 at 3:22 am

Okay, so I’m sure I need to make like half of everything you posted here. The Basil Pizza looks sooo yum.. as does the parsnip fries. Thanks for sharing your recipes! :)


tweal January 1, 2011 at 6:56 am

Happy new year! All this food looks so delicious, and there are so many recipes I need to try now that I see this list! I love the apple cupcakes and the garlic pumpkin knots are really calling my name this morning. Thanks for compiling and sharing this list – much inspiration for good meals :)


Jessica January 1, 2011 at 9:03 am

I’m so glad I found your blog. Your entries are so inspirational and lovely. Thank you :D and Happy New Year!!


Ruthie January 1, 2011 at 9:44 am

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!


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 1, 2011 at 10:13 am

hmm not sure about that, but I know you can follow my RSS feed by clicking on the FOLLOW tab on the right hand side of the blog. All the best, Angela :)


Michelle January 1, 2011 at 12:25 pm

You can type into your blogger list, I did that when I used blogger :)


Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen January 1, 2011 at 10:23 am

Ohh that breakfast pizza still gets me!


Roz January 1, 2011 at 10:33 am

Happy New Year Angela. I hope Eric feels better soon. Your photos and recipes are wonderful, and I’ll repeat what I said a few days ago “I’ll buy your cookbook”!. All the best to you for 2011!!!


Michelle January 1, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Great post, you’ve reminded me of some recipes I wanted to try but never got around to making :)


Justeen @ Blissful Baking January 1, 2011 at 12:27 pm

wow, i just had breakfast, but those pictures are making me want to eat again! the carrot cake oatmeal looks especially fabulous!!


Amber K January 1, 2011 at 1:02 pm

I’m so sorry Eric isn’t feeling well.

But can I just say, that someday you will write a cookbook and I will be in heaven! :)


Jolene ( January 1, 2011 at 1:23 pm

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! I hope 2011 is amazing for you and Eric :-)

Danielle F January 2, 2011 at 10:13 pm

Hey!! Just wanted to let you know that I tried the Coconut Chai Latte recipe, and it is to-die-for!! It’s my new favorite night-time drink!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 2, 2011 at 10:42 pm

glad you enjoy it…i love it too!


Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table January 2, 2011 at 11:03 pm

I’m way behind on my blog reading, but wanted to say that the Carrot Cake Oats were my fav of 2011. :)

I’m so glad I found your blog this year – thank you for the continued inspiration. Cheers to 2011!!!


Hillary January 2, 2011 at 11:24 pm

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.


Z January 3, 2011 at 11:15 am

Angela! I am proclaiming my love for you!!! Thank you for the roundup of these recipes, and for everything you do in general! I love your site. Thanks to you, I am drinking one green monster a day! Happy new year!!!!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 3, 2011 at 11:19 am

haha thanks! Enjoy!


Caroline January 3, 2011 at 5:15 pm

It’s been said before, but I’ll say it again: you are INCREDIBLE. I started blogging this year and aspire to one day be half the woman you are. Your food, your photos, and your lovely personality are all fabulous and truly inspirational–thank you for being you!


Kaitlin January 5, 2011 at 1:51 pm

Happy New Year Angela!
I have been busy finishing up exams and with Family events so I haven’t had time to really read and look at all your new and exciting recipes! Now that I do have time I can’t WAIT to try the carrot cake oatmeal, vegan nog, and today I will be attempting to make the Pumpkin Gingerbread with spiced Buttercream dessert! mmmmm time to get started :)

Thank you for all the great recipes and I hope you had a wonderful Holiday!


Tania January 14, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Wowww- I’m not vegan, but you do make vegan sound like I woudn’t p’bly never miss my meat fix every now and then hahaha…Great work n some very cheerful, artistic photography! I will soon be trying out many of your recipes once I move home. Can’t wait!


Nancy Lee June 26, 2012 at 10:56 pm
