With 2020 just begun, it’s time to look back and see what your top recipes of 2019 were! Here are the top ten fan favorite recipes that you all loved the most. Comfort food, holiday meals, breakfast, and a great Italian dessert top the list. Shall we begin?
It’s that time of year again! Time to look back and see which new recipes were YOUR favorites. The ones you made and photographed on pinterest (I love seeing those!), the ones you clicked from google, the ones you bookmarked and pinned. The fan favorites of 2019.
Each of these recipes (and all my other recipes) started from a line jotted down in an idea list, moved to my recipe notebook to be filled out and detailed, and then tested/critiqued until I was satisfied I had the best version of the recipe possible.
Here we have easy dinners, comfort food, celebration recipes, a great party drink, and a classic breakfast idea.
OUR top recipes of year
As I did last year in the top recipes post, I thought I would include our favorites of everything I developed and posted throughout the year. These recipes didn’t get as popular with you but I guarantee these recipes are on point. (Especially my apple pie! It is the BEST.) Each of these are in our rotation and on family request lists.
- My Favorite – Pasta al Forno Siciliana (runner up Rhubarb Lime Rickey)
- Husband’s Favorite – Deep Dish Apple Pie (runner up Tomato Soup with Red Wine Crouton)
- Daughter’s Favorite – Cannoli Pancakes (runner up Mexican Stuffed Zucchini)
And now for your favorites, in no particular order…
YOUR Top Recipes of the Year
This is the perfect, simple party dip when you need something quick and you want to have a big punch of flavor. This dip was such a hit with my family that I knew I needed to post it and it’s turned out to be a hit with you as well. Fast, flavorful, healthy, vegan, gluten-free, how can you go wrong?
This absolutely the easiest and BEST whole roast duck recipe you’ll ever make. The low heat both renders out the fat leaving you with crispy skin and makes for a relaxed holiday meal. And I know this recipe has been the hit of the Christmas season for many of you!
A while back I posted a recipe for a blueberry mojito for one or two servings and then I realized people really wanted a mojito party recipe. No need to scale for this recipe since I’ve done the work of making sure the blueberry, mint, lime, and rum proportions are right on.
Next on the list is a fast and healthy weeknight meal! Seared cod, tomatoes, olives, and gremolata combine in a quick meal perfect for the Mediterranean diet.
I am NOT surprised this recipe made it into my top recipes of 2019! If you had ever seen Thanksgiving with my family you’d know baked brie with jam is clearly a home run. Oozy brie, tasty jam of your choice, and golden brown puff pastry. This is party food for any get-together.
I love sharing traditional Italian recipes and you loved these Easter cookies as much I loved sharing them! I really enjoyed seeing people’s photos on Pinterest this past Easter and I hope to see many more as the holiday approaches again.
Here is a great recipe for pressure cookers, like the Instant Pot. In the case of risotto it doesn’t make for a quicker recipe but does take out all the guess work! Simple, creamy, and no fuss.
THE classic Italian salad beloved by anyone with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella all kicked up a notch by swapping in burrata for the mozzarella. Who can resist juicy tomatoes and creamy burrata? Not me and not you!
Comfort food at its finest. This recipe is a favorite among my readers and for good reason. My favorite dumpling recipe paired with a creamy and rich chicken soup base is perfect any time you need a warm hug for dinner.
Out of all the recipes here, this one surprised me! Oh, I knew it was amazingly tasty and fun to make, but I wasn’t sure if anyone else was going to discover it. I’m glad you did because the world is better with more blueberry filled Dutch pancakes in the world.
