Top 10 Recipes for 2013 – I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 most downloaded recipes for 2013. These are the recipes that have been most requested in 2013 by YOU, my readers and visitors. It never get’s old for me to hear how much you’ve enjoyed making and serving one of the same dishes I serve at my own kitchen table.
This past year has been fun and ground breaking in every way for my blog. My website, is really my own personal online recipe box that I’ve invited you to share and enjoy with your loved ones.
In 2013, I went through a mid-year website redesign to make my blog more reader friendly and easier for you to navigate. I have more plans to add to my website to make it even more reader friendly in the coming year. It’s exciting to look ahead to a brand new year and the surprises and twists and turns that it holds. A heartfelt “Thank you” to each and every one who has joined me in my Southern Kitchen this past year. I love cooking and visiting with each of you, and I’m looking forward to another fantastic year of cooking together in 2014! I’m wishing you good health, love, happiness and much success in the coming year. Happy New Year with lots of love from my kitchen to yours!
Twice Baked Smashed Potatoes
Potatoes are a super food, in the sense that they go with almost everything. These potatoes are baked and smashed then mixed with plenty of cheese, ranch dressing and glorious bacon. These no-fuss potatoes are baked like a casserole, no filling of individual shells required.
Ham and Swiss Brunch Delight
Make ahead breakfast dishes remain ever so popular. They make life easier when preparing for a special brunch or when feeding a crowd. This casserole is over-the-top when drizzled with maple syrup to give it the sweet and salty edge that’s so incredibly scrumptious!
Banana Pudding Cupcakes
When I first developed this original cupcake, I had never seen anything like it in all of my days. Portable banana pudding? Hush your mouth, it just doesn’t get any better than that!
Panko-Parmesan Crusted Zucchini Fries
A lightened-up version of a french fry, these zucchini fries are perfect served as a side dish or as an appetizer dipped in buttermilk dressing or marinara sauce to keep it light.
Easy No Knead Yeast Rolls
This recipe is for bakers of all skill levels. I’ve received mail from cooks who had never made homemade bread before trying this recipe. So incredibly easy and addicting!
Layered Southwestern Cornbread Salad
This kicked-up cornbread salad falls into the category of an “edible centerpiece” in my kitchen. Served in a trifle bowl, it’s a show stopper, without a doubt. And, it’s good to the last crumb!
Skillet Apple Pie Biscuits
Is it breakfast, or is is a dessert? I say, these sweet biscuits are suitable for any time of day! After trying these, you’ll never look at biscuits the same way again.
Nested Potato Skins
Featured in Southern Living Magazine, these nested skins are so versatile, I find new uses for them regularly. Check out the end of the recipe for more ideas on how to serve these delectable potato nests.
Slow Cooked Triple Cheddar Mac and Cheese
I like to call this dish slow cooked Southern comfort. Ooey, gooey mouthwatering deliciousness!
Garlic-Parmesan Cheese Pull Apart Bread
For 2 years in a row, this recipe has held the top spot with 100’s of thousands of downloads. It’s the savory cousin to our all-time favorite monkey bread. I suggest you double the recipe when making this pull apart wonder. [And, when you serve it, it might be a good idea to stand back ☺]
