My Top 10 Most Frequently Made Recipes

September 27, 2012

Do you ever read blogs and wonder what recipes the author behind the blog actually makes time and time again? I do more times than I can count. Since most food blogs tend to be an endless parade of new and exciting dishes, it seems as if every night’s a dinner party where no recipe is made twice.

But I know better than to believe that. My guess is that a lot of food bloggers default to a select few recipes when they are baking and cooking behind the scenes. So today, I’m sharing the top 10 recipes that I make most often when I’m not baking for the blog. In no particular order:

1. Whole Wheat Flax Seed Banana Bread

2. The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie You’ll Ever Need

3. Breakfast Bran Muffins

4. Healthy Pumpkin Butter

5. Chickpea, Kale and Quinoa Bowl

6. Autumn Chopped Salad (or some version of this salad – I usually leave out the bacon)

7. Quick Caramelized French Toast

8. Buttermilk-Blueberry Pancakes (I use this as my base recipe, then customize for what is in season/on hand)

9. Slow-Cooker Apple Butter

10. Lemon-Brown Sugar Chicken

      If that makes you creepy, I’m creepy too! I always wonder what people actually cook in the day-to-day. I also have always thought it would be fascinating to work at a grocery store to see what people buy.

    I make your whole wheat waffles with bananas at least every other week. I usually make a double batch and then freeze them for the week. My 19-month-old learned how to say “waffle” because of them!

    Ooh, I love this. Sometimes it seems that food bloggers only make super complicated things with a million ingredients all the time. It’s nice to see the recipes that are simple enough to be repeated!
