Your Top 10 Favorite Recipes of 2015!

Life-Changing Chickpea Brine Vegan Pavlova (or meringues) | picklesnhoney.comHappy 2016!

Before we jump right into the new year, I wanted to highlight your top 10 favorite recipes from the last year. These recipes were the ones that got the most traffic, but they were also the ones that you all made and told me you loved the most (even if the pavlova can be finicky!).

We’re on the last quarter of our year-long road trip (slooooow dooooown, time!), which means I’m still working out of tiny AirBnB kitchens and with very limited cookware. But! I’d love to know if there are recipes you’d like me to tackle in 2016. Leave your requests in the comments!

Cheers to an awesome new year!

    What a really great idea!

    1. Thanks, Janine! Your blog is beautiful!

  3. The chickpea brine recipe is really something. I love baking and would love to see more recipes that use less sugar or no sugar if at all possible. Happy new year, Amanda! Thank you for answering my questions about the school. I am still deep in research and now deciding between online or classroom. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Christine! Keep me posted on what you decide to do with school. <3

    Hi Amanda and Aaron,

    I am beginning to introduce more vegan meals into my life and I found your blog! Firstly it is absolutely beautiful – I love how you aim to make simple recipes, my favourite kind! I just thought I’d drop a note to say that I hope to attempt most of these top ten recipes as a personal challenge. They all look delicious. I will be sure to #picklesnhoney and update my progress on instagram. My instagram name is @thesundayoven just in case you were wondering 😉 Thank you so much for the lovely recipes!

  5. Hey Amanda I just wanted to take a minute and wish you Happy New Year.
    I’ve made at least 4 of the recipes and have to say they all have been amazing.
    I love being able to recommend your site to peeps I run into who want honest, clean vegan food.
    I think the pop up is perfect and a very wonderful and unique way to address the stealing issue. You blew me away with the way you handled it so professionally.
    Thanks so much for all the work and time you put in to your site and recipes, you truly are very good at your job.
    All the best in 2016

    1. Happy new year, Kellie! Your comment just made my day. It makes me so happy that you’re loving and sharing my recipes!

      Re the pop-up: I wish we didn’t even have to address it, but the stealing started to get out of control. It was sucking up a solid day every week trying to combat it. 🙁 The pop-up does seem to be working though, much as we’d prefer to not have to use it!

      Wishing you all the best in 2016 too! <3
