My top 5 Favorites

I thought before I begin my last 50 recipes,  I would  share with you some of my favorite dishes I have made thus far. To pick just 5 was REALLY hard.  Looking back on everything  I realize how many dishes I loved.   So here it goes, I will countdown to my most favorite.

# 5 Kale Chips
This one really surprised me.  I could not stand the pre-bagged kale chips, and just figured the same would go for homemade.  I was so pleasantly surprised to find out how yummy they were. 

#4 Coconut and Red Lentil Soup
I love this soup. It is delicious and so satisfying.  I am not the only person in my world that loves this soup. One of my friends make this weekly for her family now.

#3 Chocolate Walnut Cake
This cake is so amazing.  It was so incredibly moist, and I think one of the best cakes I have ever made.  The frosting was initially a little tricky for me to perfect, but the end result was awesome.

#2 Nana's Marinara Sauce with Polenta & Garlicky Mushrooms

My family loved this dinner.  The marinara sauce is great on everything! We have made the marinara sauce over and over.  It is not only great on polenta, but also on pasta and pizza.  The Garlicky Mushrooms that we served with this dinner were fantastic too!

#1 Walnut Falafel
I told you this was my favorite the other day when I first blogged about it, and I am sticking with it.  It was really yummy, and I am sure I will be making them again very soon.

I could have picked 5 more things so easily, but I will leave you with these for now.  What were some of your favorites? Let me know...


  1. Congrats on your milestone! I haven't tried any of your top 5 but your blog makes them sound & look great. My favorites so far are the cornmeal banana walnut pancakes and the Goddess Smoothie.

  2. Thank you! I loved the pancakes too. Try the Green Colada Smoothie it was fab!
