My Top Recipes for 2011

I enjoyed going back and looking at all my sewing projects so much yesterday, that I thought I would do another top ten list for my most popular recipes. Here they are, starting with my most popular recipe post:

#1. Easy, No-Bake Mini Cheesecake Bites.  With over 3200 page views, this is by far my most popular recipe, with most of the traffic coming from Pinterest.  The funny thing is, I pretty much made this up on a whim.  I had a craving for cheesecake but baking a real cheesecake was way too much trouble.  I knew I had fillo shells, cream cheese and strawberries in the fridge.  Next thing you know…  Walla!  The bonus is that they are less than 45 calories per bite.


#2. Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe with Canning instructions.  This was my first attempt at canning, turns out, it’s pretty easy.


#3. Meatloaf Muffins:


#4.  Ham, Cheese and Hash Brown Frittata.  I make this all the time.


#5.  Homemade Apple Butter.  Yum!


#6.  Mom’s Taco Salad w/ Fritos


#7.  Creamy Ham and Potato Casserole.  This recipe is creamy, comforting, perfect for a cold night.  The best part is that it is diet friendly!  (I think I will be adding it to the menu next week, great way to use up the Christmas Ham leftovers…)


#8.  Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies.


#9.  Easy Tex-Mex Bake – Lightened Up.  Another Low-Cal recipe…


#10.   How to Make Raspberry Sorbet.  I think this may be one of my favorite posts, mainly because of the video that we made for it.  (Not to mention that the raspberry sorbet was delish!)  I can watch it over and over…


You can check out all of my recipes on my newly updated recipe gallery page found here.

Thanks for stopping by everybody and Happy New Year.  I wish for many blessings to you and your family in the year 2012!

    @ Jacqueline: I have never had marscapone, I had to look it up. It sounds delicious. I have used ricotta in desserts before, (back when low carb diets were popular) I am sure it would be good too. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Ruby Jean says:

    Oh My goodness!!! ALL of these look delicious… Every year I say I am going to make Apple Butter.. And I NEVER do.. I have made Pear Butter which taste a lot like the Apple Butter…. So I am thinking this should be the year for me to make Homemade Apple Butter.. 🙂 I would love for you to stop in and share here http://shoprubyjean.com/2012/01/sew-crafty-tuesday-linky-4-and-giveaway/

  12. Jacqueline says:

    I wonder if you could substitute marscapone for the cream cheese? Or even a good ricotta? I just noticed you were sweet enough to stop by The Organic Blonde too so I want to say thanks but I am printing off your cheesecake recipe as we speak!

  13. Jacqueline says:
