It’s been an annual tradition since I started blogging to do this roundup so here are my Top 20 Recipes of 2021.
Rather than me tell you about the recipes I’m passing the baton over to you, my readers.
So, if you’ve ever made a comment on one of my recipes then it might well be below!
Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the count down!
20. Nut Roast (↓1)
Margaret Ewles said “Cooked your nut roast for my niece and her husband yesterday. My husband and I are not vegan or gluten intolerant and this was the first time I had cooked a nut roast. I as concerned when mixing the ingredients in case it turned out to be dry and crumbly but suffice to say it was just right. My husband and I thought it was delicious and I will be cooking this again. I shall be making more vegan dishes in the future. In addition my niece and her husband thought it was the best nut roast they have had.”
