Wow. It is hard to believe 2013 has come to an end, before we embark on another wonderful year I'd like to share with you SMBP's top recipes of  2013! It has been an amazing year of personal & professional growth, creativity, photography and amazing recipes....tons of amazing mouthwatering recipes.

When I first started this Blog back in 2011, I never dreamed of the tremendous joy and opportunities it would bring me. From the incredible people I have gotten to know directly through blogging throughout the years, awards and nominations which included being a Sauveur 4th Annual Best Food Blogs Finalist to actual paying photography jobs; I couldn't be more thankful and appreciative of all the love & support you have shown SMBP. I am so thankful for all the amazing opportunities the blogging world has opened up for me.

So to close out 2013 (a little late, I know!) I present you

The Best of SMBP's ~ 2013!

This recipe was by far the most popular of 2013- you guys loved this cheap, easy & healthy weeknight meal!

You all proved your love for breakfast by showing a ton love for this breakfast sammie; still my go to breakfast on Saturday mornings!

The DIY series was new to SMBP in 2013 and was a total success; 4 out of 8 in the series made it into the best of 2013

Who doesn't love a cozy cup of Chai? You all certainly did!

Heck yes!

Making your own flatbreads alongside homemade falafel is incredibly easy; these flatbreads also rock with a batch of curry or daal

I was so excited to learn how excited YOU were to make your own sourdough starter- so awesome!

Warm gooey spinach & artichoke dip; need I say more?

You sure are serious about your pasta and pesto!

Super quick & easy sandwich full of early summer goodness

Chocolate + hazelnuts = pure bliss

Here's to another amazing year full of happiness, love, success & amazing vegan food!

 love to all!
