I hope you guys have had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for a fabulous NYE celebration.

I often get asked about what my personal favorite recipes are on the blog, and let me tell you… that is no easy decision. BUT since we’re coming to the end of one year and looking forward to the next it seemed like a great opportunity to share with you my absolute favorite recipes on the blog from 2017. Guess what? A lot of them are also favorites from readers too!

It’s always hard to pick favorites, but I love going back through a year of recipes and remembering all of the amazingness that came out. Guys, 2017 was delish. From my hugely popular Vegan Quinoa Chili and Chickpea Avocado Tacos, to my Fluffy Gluten-Free Yogurt Pancakes and go-to avocado tuna salad – there is SO much goodness in here that I’ve made again and again.

The coming year is going to bring even more deliciousness from Kim’s Cravings, and I couldn’t be more excited.

These 36 recipes warmed my home and my heart all year long, and I hope they do the same for you into 2018. Enjoy xo!
