Sarah’s Cucina Bella’s Top 10 Recipes of 2023

With the new year swiftly approaching, here are Sarah’s Cucina Bella’s top 10 recipes of 2023, a look back at new recipes that readers loved.

Pastas, salads and desserts dominated the favorites of new recipes on Sarah’s Cucina Bella in 2023. If I had to use one word to describe them all, I would probably say “fresh” because most recipes included fresh produce of some kind or another.

It’s always fascinating to see what recipes get the most attention each year.

What I love about this year’s list is that it includes many of my favorite recipes of the year like that amazing burrata salad and that craveworthy pesto pasta. But a few of my favorites — like Crab Benedict and Lobster Bacon Fettuccine — didn’t make the cut (you should check them out anyway).

Of course, I would be remiss to not admit that it was a weird year for this 18-year-old food site. I had to step away for months to deal with a crush of things happening behind the scenes. That meant that there were fewer new posts this year — only 30 — than usual. Thank you for sticking with SCB through it all.

In my personal life, the highlights of the year were my son graduating from high school and going on to an amazing first semester of college, my daughter dancing in three excellent productions and also excelling at school and me graduating with my masters in English. There were a lot of challenging moments too, of course, but there’s no need to dwell on those.

Back to the food, some recipes really stood out this year as most viewed (and shared!). And that’s what comprises this list.

Let yourself be inspired as we take a culinary journey through Sarah’s Cucina Bella’s Top 10 Recipes of 2023.
