Top 10 Posts According to Stats vs. My Top 10 && Check Out My New Facebook Page !

In June I revamped a food blog I started a year earlier, and created what is now the kbaked.com you see today. Blogging has not only been a fun outlet for me, but helped me find my voice and has given me a place to stretch and push myself because we all know how much I hate not having “real” homework right now.

It’s also been a way for me to share my recipes and ideas, which has been fun. As a side note, you may or may not have noticed that I’ve transitioned from vegetarianism to mostly-veganisms for a variety of reasons, a large part of which has to do with long-standing digestive health issues. I plan to write a full post on this soon, but thanks for staying tuned with me through this; I feel SO MUCH BETTER now. Anyways, I plan to keep posting a variety of recipes with different options for different dietary restrictions, vegan, vegetarian, and/or gluten-free, etc.

I can’t go any further without saying a big thanks to all my readers for visiting! I love every single comment and share and appreciate you all!

Today I look back and reflect on the past year [read: I am procrastinating a bunch of stuff I really should be doing]. Anyways, I’ve seen a lot of bloggers I follow do a round-up of recipes that were the most popular in the past year. Since I’ve never done a recipe round-up myself, I thought this could be fun. So here we have it. The Top 10 most popular recipes according to my statistics pages (based on pageviews) vs. my favorite posts form the past year. Enjoy !

My Favorites [in No Particular Order !]

1. Vegan Animal Crackers with Coconut & Strawberry Icing

IMG_9334

These were really fun to make and look oh, so wonderful if I do say so myself. They also tasted like a dream. I still have two in my freezer. Sometimes I save a few of my prettier baked goods and freeze them. I usually don’t actually eat them. I just admire them, like art work. Is that weird? Anyways the rest of them were f**cking delicious.

2. Spicy Sunflower Infused Waffle’d Falafel

Because I love a hybrid and these were SO GOOD. And now I want to make them again.

3. Vegan Chocolate Silk Pie with Coconut-Almond Whipped Topping

So there’s my round-up. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you again to every single reader for every single view, comment, feedback, or share. Blogging is a really weird thing to start, and it’s very nerve wracking at first, but thanks to my nice readers I’ve kept going and am really enjoying the ride!

Happy 2015 ! 🙂
