While 2021 has been a year with a ton of ups and downs for many of us, it has certainly taught me personally some of the greatest lessons. To be honest, I spent a majority of the year WORKING——-working on my craft, working on my cookbook, working on myself through therapy, and just working to be an overall better version of myself. To see a full list of what I learned in 2021, check out my IG Post where I get real.
Granted, the work wasn’t and isn’t easy—-but looking back now, I am so glad that I started. Usually, I create a roundup of recipes based on your favorites throughout the year, BUT I did send out an email (hopefully you’re subscribed to my email list) with the surprising top recipes for 2021.
Therefore, I wanted to do things a bit different and give you some great options from my perspective. I know that so many of you ask me which recipes are my ultimate favorite and it’s such a hard answer. Haha.
Even creating this list was HARD, but I managed to handpick my faves nevertheless. Take a look at my curated 5o+ Best of 2021: My Personal Favorite Recipes list for recipe inspiration!
This creamy and sweet PB Banana Pudding is a fast Southern-style dessert with a shortcut: boxed pudding mix!
This recipe for Spicy One-Pot Jerk Chicken and Dumplings is comfort food at its finest. Tender chicken breasts, warming jerk seasoning, onion, carrots, bell peppers and fluffy homemade dumplings make the perfect dinner for a chilly night.
This Homemade Rum Raisin Bread is fluffy and soft with deep flavors of cinnamon, naturally sweetened, and 100% vegan! It takes less than 10 minutes to make and offers a healthy and nutritious breakfast option with just the right amount of sweetness.
