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 2023, the recipes ranged all over the spectrum with German Recipes coming in at the top.
Top Twelve Recipes for 2023
This recipe for Kielbasa Sauerkraut with Potatoes was my all time favorite with over 20,000 views. I find this quite odd, as it didn’t even rank in the top 15 last year. It’s an easy one-dish recipe to make for your family as a weeknight dinner. Flavored with onion, garlic, thyme, and sage, it’s quite satisfying.
#2 – The second most popular recipe was Chocolate Fudge Truffle Cheesecake. Folks, this recipe deserves its spot, as it’s a chocolate-lover’s dream. Truly, it’s an amazing recipe that turns out every time I’ve made it. I love enjoying it on my birthday or for Valentine’s Day!
#3 – In the number three spot, is my recipe for Angel Food Cake with Frosting. Last year this recipe ranked #1, so I was glad to see that it’s still quite popular. 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!
#4 – Climbing two spots is Pork Schnitzel with Cream Sauce, which came in at #6 last year. This is always a popular recipe, especially for anyone looking for comfort food or a German dish. It’s an easy weeknight dinner to make for your family and pairs well with mashed potatoes or German Spaetzle with Cabbage!
#5 – Thick Venison Chili remains in the top five recipes. 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 is one of them!
#6 – Chicken Teriyaki on a Stick places sixth. It’s a delicious main dish 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!
#7 – Orange Carrot Gelatin Salad is a dish my family has been making ever since I was a little girl. Apparently, it is quite popular for Jell-o salads. It’s a very versatile recipe that is great all year long, whether for a holiday dinner, a picnic, or a summer barbecue.
#8 – Once again during the holidays, Mom’s Pecan Brittle received quite a lot of traffic. And rightly so. It’s delicious! If you enjoy making or eating brittle candy, give this uncomplicated recipe a try!
#9 – German Spaetzle with Cabbage climbs into the top twelve recipes this year. We’ve been making homemade spaetzle in our home for many years. My mother-in-law shared the recipe with me back at my first Oktoberfest celebration at our church. It’s simply delicious and is perfect with German food, or for your next holiday dinner.
#10 – In tenth place is my recipe for Roast Beef and Noodles. I’m happy to see that it’s still being viewed by many. It’s so good, and true comfort food.
#11 – This one really surprised me, as my Italian dishes do not usually get much attention. I’m guessing this might be because of our German family name, which doesn’t lend much authenticity to Italian recipes. No matter the reason, I’m delighted to see that Tiramisu with Cream Cheese made it into the top twelve this year. It is a delicious recipe to try the next time you serve an Italian dinner for your family!
#12 – Coming in at number twelve is another German recipe. German Style Meatballs is a family favorite we make every year. Flavorful meatballs in a sweet and sour sauce, loaded with sauerkraut and cranberries. Members of our church like these meatballs so much, they’ve come to expect it each year.
