The Best of 2008

It's been a great year! But the best part was all the awesome vegan food I got to eat and share with others. Here are the "Best of 2008," according to moi....(I made so many recipes - it was hard to choose! These are all ones I would "make again," which is a big compliment coming from my kitchen....) ...in no particular order.

I haven't counted up how many recipes I made in total this year, but I figure I've been blogging and counting recipes for about three years and I've made 500 NEW recipes total, so you go do the math and I'm going to get ready for New Year's! See you in 2009!
