Top 10 Recipes Of 2019

2019 started out strong with lots of cooking and new recipes being shared on the blog. The middle of the year knocked the wind out of us. With a life-changing event and several tough months, the blog was left in the lurch; all alone. Towards the end of 2019, getting back to blogging and sharing recipes felt cathartic. I had missed doing that and was happy to be cooking, writing and photographing.

You have loved these recipes on the blog this year. All good choices, I must say! And I hope you continue to cook from the blog in the coming weeks. I am hoping 2020 is healthful for us and for you all. And in that spirit, I am looking forward to sharing really vibrant and healthy recipes for you starting later this week.

4. Vegan Makhani Curry Sauce
