This past year has been very eventful for me! So many exciting things have happened. 🙂
- I got engaged
- I got married
- I advanced in my career
- We bought a condo
- I turned 30
- I started a food blog
If you would have told me a couple of years ago that I would be reaching a number of these milestones, I wouldn't have believed you! It has been a whirlwind and I am excited to see what 2016 has to offer.
Creating my food blog was my last big milestone of 2015. And although Ahead of Thyme is still a baby, I have seen a lot of growth over the span of its short life. It has been featured in many food websites including Foodgawker, Healthy Aperture, Tasteologie and Finding Vegan. Our delicious Almond Pecan Granola was also featured in Huffington Post under "22 Healthy Breakfast Ideas to Help You Start Your Day Right" which I think is pretty darn cool!
Reflecting on all the facets of 2015, I present the top 5 blog posts of 2015:
This vibrant, vegan soup sums up the taste of the holidays in one spoon. Rosemary, sage and thyme, need I say more? This soup has a very creamy and smooth texture. But it is 100% VEGAN. There is no cream, no milk, no butter!! You can't get any healthier than that!
This Middle Eastern lentil stew with carrots and potatoes recipe is delicious and hearty and makes for a nutritious and filling meal tonight!
Budget-friendly chicken thighs make for a delicious meal packed with flavour in this Middle Eastern inspired dish.
This particular combination of roasted asparagus and mushrooms is a match made in heaven! The aromas that emanate the moment you take the roasting pan out of the oven is just a precursor to the flavours that you are about to taste in your mouth. This recipe makes the perfect vegan side dish to any meal. Serve these delicious vegetables with chicken breast or salmon for a complete meal.
Sugar cookies were the number one viewed post on my blog!! I hope you had fun with this one this holiday season! Anyone can decorate the perfect sugar cookie with royal icing. All it takes is a basic technique and some time dedication!
