With the end of a year, I like to look back and take “inventory” on my recipes, if that makes sense. In regard to the Most Popular Recipes of 2021, you might guess that a lot of these recipes are “Comfort Foods” that I love. But there are a few odd ducks in here that might surprise you. Scroll on down to see how the following recipes ranks for the year.

#1 – My most popular recipe is also my most surprising recipe. I would never have guessed that Chicken Teriyaki on a Stick would get so much traffic. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a delicious recipe to make on the grill or in an oven broiler. Marinated chicken tenders, tender, saucy, and so yummy! Check it out and see what you think!

#2 – This second recipe is not really a surprise, as a lot of my venison recipes have ranked in the top 50 recipes. For the first 15 years of our marriage, our family practically lived on venison that my husband hunted, both deer and elk. After much trial and error, I learned the best recipes for using the roasts, steaks, and burger. This Thick Venison Chili recipe is one that uses ground venison burger.

Thick Venison Chili
The first ten years of our marriage, we nearly lived on wild game, much of it deer or elk meat. Here's a chili recipe using ground venison that is thick, which my husband likes.

#3 – This recipe and the next is also not a surprise as my Sourdough Recipes also rank rather high. We love this Tangy Sourdough Bread and make it every week! It makes two loaves, so I’ll either freeze one for later in the week or take it to our weekly potluck at church, or give a loaf to family or friends.

#4 – We love these bread bowls, especially in the cold months of the year. To make these Sourdough Bread Bowls, I adjusted my Tangy Sourdough Bread recipe to make 8 soup bowls. After they’ve baked and cooled, you can use them, store them in a bread box, or freeze for later.

#7 – Roast Beef and Noodles is a favorite dish I like to make in the fall and winter. There are few things better than to walk in from the cold to the savory scent of roast beef cooking on the stove. I love Dutch Oven Cooking, and this recipe is Comfort Food Deluxe. From the tender roast beef to the toothy, flavorful egg noodles and gravy poured over mashed potatoes. Delicious!

Ever since my husband and I married, which is now over 30 years. It may even have been a family recipe. It’s been so long ago, I don’t even remember.
