Top 3 Posts in 2015

Happy New Year, everyone! Looking over my stats from 2015, I thought I’d share my top three posts. I could have guessed two of them, but one was a little surprising!

Orthodox Bread of Holy Oblation
#3 Bread of Holy Oblation
In the number three spot is a recipe that’s been going strong for about 3 1/2 years now. This is a step-by-step guide to making the bread used for Holy Communion in the Orthodox Church. Not only does it have the recipe and steps for baking the bread, there’s a little background given on the symbols in the seal. I bet this will be up there in the top recipes forever since we always need this bread in the Church.

Vegan Allergen Menu Fridays
#2 Vegan at Fridays
I love that this is right up there in the top three because it’s basically me sticking it to Fridays for their lack of vegan options and ridiculous allergen menu. I can’t believe how popular it’s been. If you google “vegan at Fridays”, there I am in the number 1 spot! Take that, Fridays!

How To Make Vegan Coconut Milk Cheese
#1 Make Vegan Coconut Milk Cheese
The number one recipe of 2015 is actually from 2014. But apparently it has staying power, it is definitely a recipe I’ve continued to use regularly. It’s a fun one because you can play around with the flavor and easily make it your own, and add it to so many dishes or just eat it by itself.

Have you referenced any of these posts yourself? If you have, thanks for bumping their stats in 2015! I’m working on recipes for this new year, and I can’t wait to share them with you and read your comments throughout 2016. If there’s something you’d like to see (veganized recipe, or maybe a product review) just let me know!

P.S. Happy New Year!

Almost forgot to wish everyone a Happy Ecclesiastical New Year! September 1 is the first day of the new Liturgical year in the Orthodox Church. Did you make any resolutions for the new year?

“O Word of the Father from before the ages, Who, being in the form of God, broughtest creation into being out of nothing; Thou Who hast put the times and seasons in Thine own power: Bless the crown of the year with Thy goodness; give peace unto Thy churches, victory unto Thy faithful hierarchs, fruitfulness unto the earth, and Great Mercy unto us.”

–Orthros of the Feast, Tone 3
