Wow, and just like that, another year has come and gone. It feels like the years go faster as I get older.
With the year ending, I wanted to reflect back on what recipes were the most popular on my blog. It helps me see what people are interested in, what types of recipes are easiest, what types of recipes are hits for the summer, holidays and just weeknight cooking.
As we go into 2022, I want to continue bringing you simple and delicious recipes so we can put food on the tables for ourselves and family without the stress.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to you for trying out my recipes, sharing them and posting pictures. A big reason why this blog has grown is because of you so thank you!
Here are the top 10 most visited recipes on my blog in 2021.
1. Black Truffle Pasta
The most visited recipe of 2021 on my blog was Black Truffle Pasta. Knowing that it’s hard to find black truffles and that they’re expensive, in the recipe, I’ve included a way to create the truffle flavor if you don’t have a truffle. Find the recipe here.
2. Panko and Parmesan Crusted Tilapia
Tilapia is great for omega-6 fatty acids. It’s also a great source of protein and relatively low in fat. When looking for a lighter weeknight dinner, this is a great option! This only takes about 15 minutes and a handful of ingredients. Find the recipe here.
3. Burger Bombs
This recipe was my very first recipe I put together years ago that is somehow still my most talked about recipe that people send me pictures of. Find the recipe here.
4. School’s Fiestada
If you went to school in the early 2000s and are from the Midwest, you probably remember a school lunch called Fiestada. It’s a mix between pizza, taco and built like a lasagna. Find the recipe here.
5. Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwich with Southern Slaw
Grab a crockpot and let this chicken cook low and slow all day long. Once you’re ready to serve, whip up with crunchy, tangy southern slaw to go on top. Find the recipe here.
6. Creamy Potato Soup
There is nothing like a warm, creamy soup in the fall and winter. This soup is one of my favorites! Tip: to get a wonderful potato texture, use a potato masher once the potatoes are soft. Find the recipe here.
7. Italian Roll Ups
These roll ups were featured on Show Me St. Louis and are so easy to make! They’re perfect to throw into a cooler for a picnic or road trip and are always the first to go when bringing them to a party. Find the recipe here.
8. Ground Chicken and Green Beans
A 15-minute dinner– I mean what can be better than that? This dish has a quick and easy sauce and is great for meal prepping. Find the recipe here.
9. Shaved Steak Fajitas
This meal is super quick because of how quickly the shaved steak cooks in the skillet. If you can’t find shaved steak, you can use flank steak and slice it thinly. Find the recipe here.
10. Fajita Veggie Zucchini Boats
If you’re looking for a low carb, vegetarian dish, then you’ve found the one! It’s delicious! If you’re like my husband and want the protein, feel free to add taco meat. Find the recipe here.
