I have personal favorites that didn’t make the list, like Pumpkin Pecan Oat Pancakes and Garlic & Rosemary Rubbed Tenderloin with Roasted Root Vegetables, and feel like they could have been contenders in this popularity contest if they were posted earlier in the year.

Thank you for reading my blog this year and I am looking forward to sharing a fit and flavorful 2015 with you!

Do you have any big plans for 2015? I have a son going to college (!!), plan on running lots of half marathons, need to feel some beach sand under my toes, and am “finally” going to organize my recipe collection. What about you?

    • That baffled me too . . . . most girls would like to hear “your eyes are pretty’ or even “nice legs” . . . . but “your veins are breathtaking” WTF?!

  1. I love the workout bloopers…I think I’m going to compile a video of all mine, haha. I haven’t looked at how people found my blog through search queries in forever! They can be SO WEIRD sometimes.

    • When I was going through my photos from the year, I realized I had deleted many of the not so good ones . . . . at the timme I was thinking “sheezeand I hope no one sees these” and now I’m realizing they were pure gold.

  2. I’m glad you thought my comment was sweet– and it’s the truth.. every single time I make veggie cups or any of your recipes, you are right here with us. You had an lovely year, it was a blast to follow you, and I look forward to 2015 as well. Sending a child off to college would give me mixed feelings– I think that will be a difficult moment in my life– it’s like a book, there are some chapters you don’t want to end, but it’s equally exciting to start new ones. xo

    • I am terrible about commenting “yummy looking” or “yes please” (new year’s resolution to put more thought into my comments) so your message saying I was part of the family made me feel like my blog is totally worth the trouble :-) Happy New Year!!!
