It’s that time of the year again… time for the top 10 recipes of the year, according to you! It’s become a yearly tradition to end the year with this recap. It’s fun for me to look at what the most popular new recipes were from that year. There are almost always some surprises! Let me know if your favorites made the list!

When I was looking back at my previous top 10 posts, one year was savory and another was mostly sweet. This year though… a nice mix! A well rounded list of sweet to savory, including hearty dinner ideas, savory sides and perfectly sweet treats!

    Meant to come comment last week and say thank you for posting that chicken tortilla soup on Facebook! I saw that post and thought that’d be good for supper, and I actually had most the ingredients so made it right away – amazing! We will definitely be making that one again! Not on your list here, but the enchilada soup reminded me – we’ll have to try that one next! Happy New Year!

      So glad to hear you enjoyed it! Definitely give the enchilada soup a try sometime. It’s similar but with a flavor twist! :) Happy New Year to you as well!

    What a delicious looking round-up! So many great ideas! I’m so excited to try the scalloped potatoes (cheese and potato are two of my favourite things!)

    I’m loving your website! So glad I stumbled across it.
