At the end of a year, I like to look back and take “inventory” of my recipes and how they were viewed. In regard to the Most Popular Recipes of 2022, you might guess that a lot of the recipes are “Comfort Foods.” And you would be correct.

But there are a few odd ducks in here that might surprise you. Scroll further down to see how the following fifteen recipes rank for the year, beginning with the most viewed recipe.


#1 – My most popular recipe this last year was Angel Food Cake with Frosting. Last year this recipe ranked #10, so I was glad to see that it had climbed all the way to the top. I’m thrilled to know so many people are looking at homemade versions of this recipe! When you want a really delicious Angel Food Cake, try this. The cake is light and airy with a hint of vanilla and citrus, and the 7-Minute Frosting is so marshmallowy good!

#3 – In the number three spot is Thick Venison Chili, which uses ground venison burger. A lot of my venison recipes have ranked in the top 50 recipes.

After much trial and error, I learned the best recipes for using the roasts, steaks, and burger. This is one of them!
