I slacked off in 2016. But that is understandable. My schedule was so busy, that I had less time to try new recipes. I did try some new, retried several old, and tasty recipes!
Here are some favorite recipes from 2016.
In January, I kicked off the year, with some another fun Black-eyed Peas and Collard Greens recipes. This one is a keeper!
I even tried two roll recipes: Jalapeno, Scallion and Garlic and Sun-dried Tomato and Jalapeno. Both were so delicious, that I continued to make them throughout the year!
I attempted the 21-day beach body diet in early 2016, and here’s my version of Bulghur Wheat Upma, designed to meet the container requirement (Disclaimer: I am not a certified Beach Body coach, so use at your own discretion!)
Another fun recipe in February from the beach body diet was the Brown Rice Paella.
March was all about Cauliflower Nirvana. Period!
Come April, I put all else aside for a two week vacation down under. What an incredible trip!
May is always, typically about Cherries.
I also experimented with other recipes like Mango Coconut Scones
And learnt to make Bagels… Sun Dried Tomato and Jalapeno bagels, of course 🙂
Summertime, to beat the heat, I experimented with many Popsicle recipes, many of them with mango or cherries: my two favorite fruits.
I maintained a scant patio garden this summer, which was plagued by over zealous squirrels. The most exciting vegetable from my patio garden this year was zucchini!
August was about Savory Sun-dried Tomato Kalamata Olive and Jalapeno bread.
Two fun recipes from September included, plunging into Cauliflower Rice and Stir Fried Vegetables.
And these delicious Cherry Friands!
And another variation of the Quinoa Bisibele Bath.
October, I found Mango Chia Pudding, and it was terrific. It has fast become my go-to breakfast items!
November was incredibly busy. Come December, I did try the Tian.
But, December is all about the holidays… about Airplane Cookies!
Have a very Happy New Year!
Hope to see you back here next year!
