2011 Reader Favorites

It’s hard to believe 2011 has come and gone (nearly anyway). I like looking back and seeing what were the most popular posts over the year. Some I could easily guess for one reason or another and others are a complete surprise to me. I’ll also be sharing my favorites of the year that didn’t make this list.

Here are the top 10 reader favorite posts in 2011:


10. Slow cooker New England clam chowder


9. Bacon wrapped meatloaf


8. Clover rolls


7. Reese’s cup cookies


6. Homemade ice cream sandwiches


5. Fudgesicles


4. White chocolate peppermint bark cheesecake


3. Peppermint bark (new and old)


2. Apple crumb pie

and the most popular post was…


1. Buffalo chicken calzones

Did some of your favorites make the list?

Stay tuned for my favorites.

    So were there any surprises? Some of my Reader Top 10s are shocking to me. That meatloaf is so so pretty.

      The fudgesicles caught me by surprise the most but also the Reese’s cup cookies.

    I love all of these but most of all #1, that buffalo chicken calzone. Looks sooo good! I’d also add your buffalo chicken chowder to that list. We made that and it was delicious!
