It’s always fun to look back at the year and see which recipes were the most popular with RecipeGirl readers (in terms of traffic) for 2013. Here are the results:
#10: Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Cake: This was another cheesecake cake success. It was both festive and delicious!
#8: Baked Pasta: It’s funny because this recipe was made last-minute, on-the-fly. Sometimes those kinds of recipes turn out best!
#6: Chocolate Cream Pie: The filling for this pie was absolutely amazing. I remember scraping the pan for the tidbits left behind.
#5: Vegetable Enchiladas: This recipe was a surprise hit too! The recipe originally came from Martha Stewart but I changed it slightly.
#4: Easy Cranberry Sauce: I guess people like easy, and this one is definitely easy!
#3: Pizza Pinwheels: I created this one as a Game Day recipe. It was indeed good, and it was a big hit!
#2: 2 Ingredient Pancakes: There are different versions of this one all over the internet, so I took a stab at them too. It’s a great option for pancakes for those watching their carb intake.
#1: Cinnamon- Apple Pie Cake: This was a recipe shared from the Australian cookbook: The Monday Morning Cooking Club. The recipe turned out to be a delightful surprise- one that is very different than a pie or a cake. A lot of RecipeGirl readers made this one, adapted it and enjoyed it!
As for my PERSONAL FAVORITES of 2013, here they are:
#1: Easy Gourmet Salad: I just keep making this one over and over and over again. All of the add-ins and the homemade dressing make it great!
#2: Butternut Squash and Kale Soup with Fresh Herbs and White Beans: I really enjoyed the simplicity of this soup. A sprinkle of Parmesan makes it perfect for warming you up on a chilly day.
#3: Strawberry Cookies and Cream Ice Cream: Maybe it was because I was sharing this recipe with some good friends of ours, but I really loved this ice cream a lot!
I find myself repeating all three of these recipes again and again (which is rather rare for me to do!)
