A Whole Lotta Noshing Ahead in 2012

Here we are, folks! 2012 has arrived, long awaited and ripe with expectations. It's been a busy winter so far in my neck of the woods, and I'm looking forward to a busy 2012 as well. With this new year comes new opportunities and, like most people, I'm feeling motivated to make forward progress toward a happier, healthier me.

Baked Zucchini and Carrot Fritters with Tofu Omelet from January 2011
But I didn't make a New Year's Resolution to work out, lose weight, fit into a certain size jeans, or go on a restrictive diet. In fact, I didn't make any resolutions at all. My only real resolve is what it always has been: to eat as many vegetables and whole foods as possible and to always listen to my body.
Rustic Fig Tartlet from March 2011
When I started blogging my recipes back in 2009, I added the resolution to share my foodie thoughts with anyone willing to listen and/or read. I'm really thrilled to hear from folks on a daily basis who have fallen in love with vegetables -- again or for the first time -- through my recipes. I am at once pleased, proud, joyful and satisfied to receive this kind of feedback and I look forward to reaching out to many more people in 2012.
Pesto with Basil, Artichoke and Peas from June 2011
Rather than spend my first post of 2012 recapping what happened in 2011, I thought it would be more appropriate to let you know what to expect on The Verdant Life in the coming year:

  • Even more easy, healthy recipes for all kinds of eaters 
  • Healthed-up versions of gourmet recipes
  • More tips on food budgets and ways to save at the grocery store 
  • Cook-ahead recipes for entertaining and weeknight meals
Vegan Pizza Day Countdown - Crust, Sauces and Toppings from January 2011
Additionally, you're going to see a lot more posts about pizza. As I reviewed my website statistics from 2011, I realized that the #1 search term that brings folks to my website, month after month, is pizza. If you've been reading for a while, you know I make my pizza dough from scratch and that pizza night is in regular rotation at my house (usually on Friday nights, an idea I got from Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle). I've got about a gazillion ideas for pizza topping combinations and pizza-like foods, and I can't wait to start sharing them with you this year. 


So... who's hungry?
