I know everyone says this but this year really has gone by in a flash. It feels strangely short but also like a lot has happened. I finished my masters, worked in Geneva for a month, visited Scandinavia and St.Lucia, moved to London…and now I’m about to start my first “real” job!
Throughout it all I’ve been writing this little blog of mine! I wrote 115 posts this year and hopefully brought you enough variety with travel recaps, product, restaurant and book reviews as well as lots of recipes. I’m as grateful as ever for all the support from my readers — It’s been wonderful to get your positive feedback, share ideas as well as see lots of photos on social media of my recipes made by you!
Last year I posted the Best of 2013 on Coconut and Berries so I thought I’d make it a habit and share the top 10 posts of 2014 (by number of views).
My second frittata recipe on the blog! This one has a Middle-Eastern feel to it and is light, fluffy and full of vegetables.
You guys went crazy for these! These little bites are a great variation on our beloved chickpea dip….and that mango-tahini sauce! So delicious. My favourite way to serve them is over a rainbow salad but they’re great as finger food dipped in the sauce.
One of the very first recipes I made after my move to London! Wonderful autumnal food, and especially satisfying served “bowl” style.
I definitely agree that these should be in the top 10. Definitely one of my favourites and of course fitting for Coconut and Berries! I haven’t made pancakes in a ridiculously long time but now I’m looking at these I want to asap!
It seems you all like “bite-size” food as much as me. These were another hit this year and inspired by my quest to use up some simple pantry staples. Again these can be served in any number of ways but are especially good taco-style!
Not technically a recipe post but one that proved popular all the same. I talked about this healthy, versatile ingredient and shared lots of fun ways to use it. My simple chickpea flour flatbreads are a regular around these parts and go with everything.
Who knew just a few simple ingredients could make such a wonderful salad?! Granted, they are some of my favourite ingredients…
A very easy dish, hearty and healthy.
Another great flavour pairing – ginger & chocolate! This smoothie is ultra creamy, sweet with a little chocolatey crunch. I also introduced my fabulous new blender from Froothie in this post and it’s been a happy companion ever since. If you’re looking for a great value, great quality blender, definitely take a look.
Probably another one of my favourites too. I mastered the art of the eggy texture (without tofu!) and filled this scrumptious quiche with lots of lovely Spring vegetables. I’m pretty proud of the awesome quinoa crust too!
This was my birthday treat this year! I’m determined to have a real birthday cake in 2015 but was still very happy with this decadent drink for breakfast. It’s fun to swirl the caramel all over the glass too!
I’m amazed to see there are no desserts (excluding dessert smoothies…) in this year’s line-up! Admittedly, some of my top picks are the sweet things: My Hazelnut Butter Choc Chip Muffins, Little Lemon Pots and Maple-Roasted Nut Butter Brownies definitely make the cut.
Tell me what were your favourites this year! Did you make any recipes from Coconut and Berries?
I wish everyone the very best for 2015…..Happy New Year!
