Easy Broccoli Cheddar Soup

1. Easy Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Oh, this soup. It takes minutes to prepare in the Vitamix and is so comforting on a cold winter night.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya Recipe

2. Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Shrimp Jambalaya

Busy families know how important it is to have easy slow cooker recipes in the cache for busy nights. This recipe, with its zesty (perhaps a little spicy) mix of flavors is a favorite.

Baked Loaded Nacho Wontons

3. Baked Loaded Nachos Wontons

They’re nachos! They’re wontons! And they are baked too, so you don’t have to feel so guilty about indulging in these itty bitty appetizers. Dip ’em in salsa.

Cinnamon Roll SPiced Cupcakes

4. Cinnamon Roll Spiced Cupcakes

Delicate little cupcakes that taste of cinnamon rolls? Swoon. Apparently you agreed too.

Balsamic Kale and Beluga Lentils

5. Balsamic Kale and Black Lentils with Feta

I fell in love with black lentils last winter, and this rich but healthful salad was one of my favorite ways to enjoy them. It’s got so much good stuff in it — and so much flavor.

Macaroni and Cheese with Gouda

6. Creamy Spinach Artichoke Macaroni and Cheese with Gouda

Who doesn’t love a little macaroni and cheese once in awhile? This decadent dish was creamy and filled with bits of spinach too.

7. Broiled Grapefruit with Honey and Coconut Sugar

Changing up your breakfast routine with healthier options? Then you might want to try this popular sweet-tart recipe from last year.

Asian Meatballs Stir-Fry with Peppers

8. Asian Meatballs Stir-fry with Peppers

One of the most frequent things I hear from families is that they want more quick and easy recipes for dinner. This meatballs and peppers pairing with an Asian twist was pretty popular — I think because it’s quick and easy and it’s different too.

One Bowl Caramel Salted Blondies

9. One-Bowl Salted Caramel Blondies

Do I even need to guess why this was a popular recipe? Philia from Sweet Phi guest posted in early summer while I was moving, and this mouthwatering recipe was an instant hit with readers.

Butternut Squash Alfredo

10. Easy Butternut Squash Alfredo

One of my son’s favorite recipes, and the one that got my daughter to eat butternut squash again … I was happy to see this one make the top 10!
