Top 10 Recipes of 2016

Top 10 Recipes of 2016 | Homan at Home

Another year come and gone, and the final stats are in. These recipes are the ones that readers loved most this year. You’re a pretty balanced group – we came out with five sweet recipes and five savory. Favorites from other years showed up in the top 10 most viewed (just can’t keep Chicken Enchiladas and Dustin’s Stir-fry down!), but here I chose to focus on the reader favorites that came out in 2016. 

Speaking of, before we get to the list, I’d like to know how best to help you in the coming year. Would you mind taking this little survey to let me know what kind of content you’d like to see? Pretty please? It should take less than two minutes of your time, and would help me know how to help you in 2017. Just click on the link below to access the survey.

Thanks a bunch! You guys rock!

And now, on to our reader favorites showcase. Starting us off at #1 is

1. Apple Crisp

No surprise here. This super simple recipe took off in ways this blog has never seen before. With a tart, juicy apple filling, and a buttery crumble topping, Apple Crisp is easy, impressive, and totally delicious!

2. Peanut Butter Frosting

I actually had an older recipe for peanut butter frosting on the blog, but this year I decided to make some changes and it looks like you folks loved them. This recipe makes perfectly fluffy, decadent peanut butter frosting. It’s chocolate cake’s soul mate. Just trust me on this one šŸ™‚

3. Eggless Cookie Dough 3 Ways

Here’s a post who’s popularity was very surprising. Apparently there are a LOT of people out there who love unbaked cookie dough and are smart enough to want to avoid salmonella. And the method for turning any cookie dough recipe into an eggless version is so easy, you’re going to want to check it out.

4. Homemade French Fries

Usually sides don’t make the top 10, but Homemade French Fries is the exception to the rule this year. Some folks call them Jo-Jo potatoes, some call them steak fries, but it would seem that many readers thought they were pretty yummy no matter what you call them!

5. Bunny Cut-up Cake

Apparently I’m easily surprised, but here’s another one whose popularity outside of the Easter season threw me for a loop. Two round cakes make a pretty darn cute bunny when they’re cut the right way, and I guess a template or two does make the job easier!

6. Italian Chicken Skillet

This recipe is solid dinner material. I love it because it takes things I always have around my house, which makes it perfect for a quick weeknight meal. It’s also healthy, so there’s that. I suppose that’s why it made #6 šŸ™‚

7. Korean Beef and Veggies

Here’s another easy weeknight dinner. It qualifies as healthy and the flavor can’t be beat. And look at all the pretty colors – no wonder you folks liked it!

8. Sugar Cookie Dough Truffles

This post took off and took off quick. These truffles have only been around since December, but they beat out most posts on this blog to take spot #8 in only one month. And what’s not to like? The melty sugar cookie dough centers? The gorgeous white chocolate covering? The sprinkles?

9. Gulf Coast Casserole

This is another contender who took off quickly! Gulf Coast Casserole came out the last week of November and racked up the views to take spot #9. This is a delicious and easy casserole that’s the perfect place to use up any leftover chicken or turkey.

10. Slow-cooker Tortilla Soup

And last but not least was one of my personal favorites from this year. Slow-cooker tortilla soup is packed with flavor. Five minutes in the morning is all you need to get it ready and when you come home, you’ve got delicious, warm homemade soup. Oh, and it’s high-protein, low-calories, so the best of all the worlds, really.
