This was the year of cooking. As the world shut down, travel ceased and people looked for things to occupy their time, cooking at home became a need and a want. We stocked our kitchens with ingredients and then had to use them.

There’s a silver lining in that. Cooking at home is a good thing.

In my own life, I found myself cooking more than I had in years. When my office closed, I began eating breakfast and lunch at home. Likewise, when my kids’ schools closed, they too found themselves eating lunch at home. Plus, we stopped eating out at restaurants as well (though we did order takeout from local restaurants once a week).

All of this also resulted in a shift on Sarah’s Cucina Bella too. There’s been more savory fare — from breakfasts to lunches to dinners and side dishes. Perhaps unsurprisingly, savory fare represents prominently in the top 10 new recipes of 2020.

It probably doesn’t hurt that these are some of my favorite recipes of the year too. (One favorite that didn’t make the list: make your own fancy ramen bowls.)

Most years, sweets make up 30 or 40 percent of the top 10 new recipes.

This year also had more new recipes on SCB than in recent years. There were 97 recipe and recipe roundup posts published here this year. Not bad.

Without further ado, these are the top 10 new recipes of 2020 on Sarah’s Cucina Bella.
