Happy New Year! (And Mama Me's Top 2011 Recipes)

Happy New Year! Just as the ice melted off this cocoon (I hope the little creature inside made its way out long before the ice and snow!), 2011 is melting away and giving way to a fresh start to a brand new year. Bring on 2012!

I've been filled with blessings in 2011 and I hope you have, too. I've also been battling some health issues these last few months and will hopefully have some answers soon. I pray they will be good answers, but regardless, I'm making some lifestyle changes in 2012. I don't plan on giving up many of the foods I love just yet - I will if I need to - but I'm definitely going to be juicing more, growing my own sprouts (I'm excited about this!), making more green smoothies and just generally making my diet more alkaline.

Will you join me in this venture? Let's all make a pledge together to make sure we are eating more greens in 2012 - are you with me? I actually have several delicious and healthy recipes I've been meaning to share with you for ages now - I plan on getting to that this next year! I pray we are all blessed greatly in 2012.

In the meantime, let's take a look at my top 10 favorite recipes from 2012. It's always a difficult thing for me to pick my favorites because I really love all the recipes I put on here. I had no less than 15 others that didn't make the cut into the top 10.

1. Mama Me's Four-Egg Cake

2. Best. Ever. Chocolate Chip Cookies

3. Yeast Bread (and cinnamon-raisin yeast bread)

4. Shrimp Casserole

And now, dear readers, here are the top five most popular recipes based on hits from all of you in 2011:

  1. Lovely (and yummy!) photos. And, I'm with you on the diet changes for 2012. I have been juicing (and cleansing) for 2 days. I'm feeling bad, but in a great way (if that makes any sense). Trying to cut my sugar addiction (even if it's organic sugar, it's still empty calories!) and increase my greens and veggies by a great amount!

    Love and hugs to you. Here's to nothing but great news on your health front. Praying for you, dear friend.


  2. Thank you, Ginny - love you, my friend! So glad you're also joining me in the more greens plan! :)
