To ring in a new year and a new decade, let's take a moment to reflect and look back at my most popular recipes from 2019! Here are the top 10 new recipes from 2019, as well as the top 5 all-time favorites from the last decade!
Not only are we saying goodbye to 2019, but we're also saying goodbye to a decade. That's why I found it fitting to also reflect on the top 5 all-time most popular recipes from the blog!
I know, I know...I only started my blog in November of 2016! So technically, it hasn't been a full decade for A Day in the Kitchen. However, 3+ years in and there are some clear favorites that people keep coming back to see!
Top 10 Most Popular New Recipes from 2019
Who wants bacon??? No pan frying, no splattering mess all over your cooktop, Perfectly Crispy Bacon For A Crowd is the easiest way to cook up a whole lot of bacon at once!
Delightfully chewy and cheesy AND gluten-free, Cheesy Korean Mochi QQ Balls are easy to make and fun to eat. My family likes them as plain cheese, but they also taste great with a bunch of chopped green onions mixed in!
My boys love focaccia and I had to try and figure out how to make a gluten-free version. This Gluten-Free Parmesan Sage Focaccia must have been a hit since it's showed up in the top 10 for 2019!
This Crazy Easy Triple Layer Iced Coffee recipe was created by my husband who wanted to be able to enjoy an iced coffee at home. Who knew he could come up with an impressive coffee-shop-looking drink? Pretty to look at, refreshing to drink, and easier on the wallet!
A bit of a surprise entry into the top 10 of 2019, albeit a pleasant one, is my Savory Chinese Winter Solstice Soup! A recipe based on what my mum would make for us once a year, this soup is loaded with flavor and comfort and so good, you can make it for any chilly night!
This is one of my favorites recipes because I can easily make a small portion of this gluten-free Almond Apple Crumble, good enough to serve 1-2 people! And it's clearly a hit with readers, too.
I get inspired by a lot of the dishes my mum used to make when I was younger, and this Rice Cooker Chinese Sticky Rice is no exception. It is a perfect balance of flavorful ingredients and sticky rice that is sure to hit the spot.
Why get take-out when you can make it yourself at home? Ready in 10 minutes, you can be enjoying a hot bowl of Super Simple Egg Drop Soup any time you want!
While the majority of my baking recipes are gluten-free, there are a few exceptions like this Deliciously Soft Asian Milk Bread. Relating to childhood memories and my Chinese culture, it was a recipe I really wanted to share and clearly, a lot of people were happy about it, too! You haven't had bread until you've had milk bread!
And topping the list of my most popular recipes of 2019 is my Fluffy Grain-Free Triple Almond Pancakes! Whether you are gluten-free or not, these fluffy pancakes are easy to make and are sure to be a hit with the crowd.
Top 5 All-Time Most Popular Recipes
This is the first gluten-free bread recipe I ever developed and it is holding strong! Soft, tender, and delicious, I'm thrilled that my Soft Gluten-Free Sandwich Bread helps people who are celiac or who are gluten-intolerant enjoy bread again!
Once you make Easy Homemade Sandwich Deli Meat, you'll understand why this recipe is so popular. I make it all the time and my kids devour it. Simple ingredients, no preservatives, no sulphates.
Easy Amazing Gluten-Free Pizza Crust is so good, you don't realize it's missing the gluten! It's another recipe that I am so happy I developed and am thrilled it has helped so many people who are gluten-intolerant.
This is the most popular Asian dish (so far!) from the blog, and it also happens to be one of my family's favorite weeknight meals. Japanese Pork Butadon Bowls are simply comforting, satisfying, and delicious.
And this one has to be the biggest surprise for me! Considering I questioned whether or not I should even publish this recipe to begin with, How To Cook Eggs In A Rice Cooker is THE number one most viewed recipe of all time on the blog! I published it back in September 2017 and the numbers remain as strong as ever! If you haven't tried cooking eggs this way, you really have to try it. It's easy, no muss, no fuss, and the eggs work out every time.
And that's a wrap!
