די "V" וואָרט ס Top עשרת הודעות פון 2012

One of the traditions of New Year’s Eve is the countdown to the New Year, the ball dropping, kisses and confetti. So here is a countdown of The “V” Word’s most popular posts of 2012.

10. מזל ניו יאר: ראש השנה מעניו פֿאַר 5773

A delicious feast to start the new year off right including Mushroom and Walnut Pate, Borscht and Beet Greens Salad, טאָפו מיט עפּל און ציבעלע רעליש, Stuffed Squash, עפּל וואָלנאַט מופפינס, Chia Puddings and more!

9. דזשענניפער עספּאָסיטאָ און סעליאַק דיסעאַסע / גלוטען-Free לעבעדיקע

This post covers the journey of actress and activist, דזשענניפער עספּאָסיטאָ, who is spreading awareness and education about celiac disease. Jennifer founded the דזשענניפער ס וועג יסוד פֿאַר סעליאַק חינוך (דזשווף) 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.

8. סופּערבאָוול מעניו – גיין גיאַנץ!

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!

7. טשיקקפּעאַ פרייז

One of my favorite appetizers: קריספּי, spicy addictive chickpea fries. Since I can’t get to Peacefood Cafe to have theirs, I had to learn to make my own!

6. The Pioneer Woman and “Chicken-Fried” טאָפו סטעאַקס און קרעאַמי מאַשט פּאַטייטאָוז מיט ווייסע גרייווי

גוט, 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” warning 🙂

5. סעסאַמי טאָפו

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!

4. Penne with Roasted Garlic, Butternut Squash, Kale and Hazelnuts

What’s not to love about this beautiful dish? Roasted garlic – מם! Butternut squash – sweet, סייווערי און געשמאַק! Kale – healthy and yummy! Hazelnuts – crunchy goodness! Vegan cheese – gooey and decadent! What’s left to say? Make this!!

3. Cashew Based Vegan Butter (Palm-Oil Free, Soy Free)

With the growing controversy over the use of palm oil, it’s getting harder and harder to buy anything. צומ גליק, 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.

2. וועגאַן מאָזזאַרעללאַ סטיקס

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!!

1. טעמפּעה ראובן סאַמוויטשיז

איך האָבן צו זאָגן, this surprised me. Not because it’s not a great recipe because it is. עס ס געשמאַק! 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. געזונט, 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; Paula Deen and Tofu Georgia; גלוטען-Free איטאַליעניש ווורשט, טייל וו; און סעיטאַן סטייק אין בעוררע בלאַנק סאָס מיט אָווען-באַקעד פרייז.

You can also check out the Top Ten Posts of 2011 און פון קורס, 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” וואָרט קוקבוק (איך וויסן, איך וויסן!), 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!!
