אחת המסורות של ערב השנה החדשה היא הספירה לאחור לשנה החדשה, הכדור יורד, נשיקות וקונפטי. אז הנה ספירה לאחור של “V” ההודעות הפופולריות ביותר של המילה 2012.
A delicious feast to start the new year off right including Mushroom and Walnut Pate, Borscht and Beet Greens Salad, טופו עם התענג Apple והבצל, Stuffed Squash, מאפינס אגוזי מלך אפל, Chia Puddings and more!
This post covers the journey of actress and activist, ג'ניפר אספוזיטו, who is spreading awareness and education about celiac disease. Jennifer founded the דרך הקרן של ג'ניפר לחינוך צליאק (JWF) which, along with education, research and awareness, works with regulatory agencies to update laws pertaining to the packaging, labeling and marketing of gluten-free ingredients in consumer products.
On her blog, Jennifer shares amazing recipes, many of them vegan. She also created her own line of gluten-free all-purpose flour and pancake mixes. Jennifer’s Way is the only pre-made flour mix I buy because it is made with unrefined nutritious ingredients and works great in all recipes.
I’d like to think that my Superbowl menu contributed to the New York Giants’ victory over the New England Patriots. A huge list of appetizers, entrees and party food, here The “V” Word stood for Victory!

One of my favorite appetizers: קריספי, spicy addictive chickpea fries. Since I can’t get to Peacefood Cafe to have theirs, I had to learn to make my own!
בסדר, I got my snark on here and had some fun at the expense of The Pioneer Woman but I have to admit, I got some super-indulgent food out of her. And we can talk about kale salad all we want but people went crazy over this meal. Yes it’s healthier than her version but it still comes with a “don’t get on the scale the next day” אזהרה 🙂

I can’t tell you how much I miss Chinese food, restaurant Chinese food. Even though there is ONE restaurant kind of nearby me, I like making my own. That way I know what’s in it. I can make it gluten-free, I control the sodium, I can say no to cornstarch and other additives. This dish is amazing!
What’s not to love about this beautiful dish? Roasted garlic – ממממ! דלורית – מתוק, משביע וטעים! טירה – healthy and yummy! אגוזי לוז – crunchy goodness! Vegan cheese – gooey and decadent! What’s left to say? Make this!!
With the growing controversy over the use of palm oil, it’s getting harder and harder to buy anything. למזלנו, making our own vegan butter is super-easy. My version is made with cashews and is both palm oil free and soy free but it can easily be adapted if you want to use soy.
Once a favorite, always a favorite. This recipe is gluten-free but could also be made with panko for those who eat gluten. Crispy on the outside, ooey-gooey on the inside. Appetizers rule!!
אני חייב לומר, this surprised me. Not because it’s not a great recipe because it is. זה טעים! But this recipe has twice as many views as the next most viewed recipe, the Mozzarella Sticks. That makes me think that somewhere out there in cyberland, people are sharing this recipe and I don’t know about it. ובכן, if that’s the case, thank you anonymous sharers. This sandwich, which is something we love to eat out, is really good and could be gluten-free – it all depends what bread you put it on.
So there you have the Top Ten Posts of 2012. The runners up (which are definitely worth mentioning) are: Gluten-Free Ciabatta Bread; Butternut Squash and Black Bean Enchiladas with Mango Avocado Salsa; פאולה דין וטופו ג'ורג'יה; נקניק איטלקי ללא גלוטן, חלק ב '; ו - סטייק ברוטב החמאה הלבן seitan בלאן עם צ'יפס אפוי בתנור.
You can also check out the Top Ten Posts of 2011 וכמובן, the Top V (5) Posts of All Time are listed on the right side of the blog page.
I look forward to writing more recipes, reviews and essays in 2013, along with The “V” ספר מתכונים מילה (אני יודע, אני יודע!), and having you with me as my lifelong vegan journey continues.
Wishing everyone a very Happy, Healthy and Compassionate New Year filled with Love, Laughter and Kindness!!
The “V” מלה: תגיד את זה. תאכל את זה. לחיות את זה.
