best vegan recipes of 2016

As my 3rd year of Brand New Vegan has come and gone, all can say is wow…..what a ride.

So much has happened I barely know where to start.  I think looking back, my first couple of years was more like a test to see if I could even do this blog thing (as so many of my friends put it).

I mean me?!?   A cook?  Let alone a blogger?  Would people even be interested?

Heh…..well……yeah……  from barely 10,000 page views in January of 2015 to well over 130,000 just last October……I’d say you are MORE than interested.   And I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel, knowing you all love my food so much.

Looking forward into 2017 I’ll do my by very best to bring you even more of the warm, comforting recipes you know and love.  Thank you for loving so many of my recipes and thanks so much for being here.

Happy New Year Everyone!
