Best of 2014


This year I tried a whole host of new recipes. Unlike last year when I attempted A. Soup. A. Week. this year I was more flexible, trying new recipes I came across. In January, I tried the 21 Day Tummy Diet. While I liked some of the recipes, being vegetarian, it was hard to stay within the bounds of the diet. Several recipes I tried from this diet remain favorites and throughout the I year I have cooked them.

My patio garden was a moderate success. I tried planting from seeds this year and while some flourished, there were several that flopped. Still it is a lot of fun and I am looking forward to spring to start planting again!
