As 2012 draws to a close, I wanted to do a quick recap of my favorite recipes that I have created this year. Check out my 7 favorite recipes of 2012, plus my favorite all-time recipe below!
Butternut Squash Chili – If you are a regular reader of this blog, you are fully aware of my butternut squash obsession. I can’t seem to eat enough butternut squash. I think it’s because I have a sweet tooth and this squash totally satisfies my love for a sweet treat. I have made this chili recipe countless times, and each time it comes out slightly different from the previous time. It stores well, which makes it a perfect recipe to make in bulk and serve for lunches all week long!
Pumpkin Oatmeal Pancakes – Who doesn’t love pancakes?! This healthier version of the traditional pancake recipe is perfect for a Fall or Winter morning. It is filling and will leave you satisfied well into lunch time.
Slow Cooker Pork and Cabbage – I love slow cookers! Nothing better than prepping for about 10 minutes in the morning, having your dinner cook all day while you are at work, then coming home to a warm, nutriious meal!
Pineapple Coconut Rum Cake – The Bahamas is my favorite vacation spot, and rum cake is the souvenir I always bring back to the States with me. After a trip to the islands last Spring, I decided to create a somewhat healthier version of the tropical dessert and I was quite pleased with the outcome.
Corn Chowder – This Vitamix recipe was the perfect to create as the days started turning colder in September. It is super creamy, super flavorful, and super easy. It quickly became one of my favorite Fall recipes!
Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies – This simple recipe is so quick to make! Only a few ingredients turn into deliciously soft, and fairly healthy, cookies. If you are looking for a healthy dessert, look no further – this vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe is for you!
Pumpkin Martini – I made this recipe far too many times in the month of November. I made it for friends, I made it for family, and I made it a lot for my husband and myself. It is creamy, warm, and comforting on a cold Fall evening. The flavor just screams Fall.
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE RECIPE…..
Butternut Squash Pizza – I may have done this recipe in December 2011, but it is my all-time favorite recipe I have created. I just love it! The sweetness of the butternut squash combined with the smoothness of the cheese and the tartness of the sun dried tomatoes, make this recipe an explosion of flavor in your mouth. Seriously. You just need to try this recipe once and you will understand what I mean!
