Most Popular Recipes of 2011

End of the year recaps are a guilty pleasure for me. I love looking back and re-discovering things I’d enjoyed earlier in the year so I wanted to include a wrap-up of sorts here too.

Today, I’m sharing the recipes that were most popular on the blog this year.

10. Bacon Pierogi Bake

There are several recipes on this blog that we’ve tried, loved and never made again. This isn’t one of them – we make it regularly. It’s also become one of my Mom’s favorites.

9. Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

A no-fuss dessert that tastes amazing. Venting the lid at the end makes the topping nice and crispy, and keeping it warm in the slow cooker makes it perfect for a party or get together.

8. Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Packed with carrots, bananas and wheat flour, these are a great, healthy muffin.

7. Chicken Spaghetti

We tried this recipe as part of a recipe swap and really enjoyed it. It’s become one of our go-to meals to bring to family and friends who need another meal in their freezer.

6. Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Start with refrigerated crescent rolls and you’ll have these mini cinnamon rolls in no time. The small size makes them perfect for a brunch spread.

5.  Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are quite the indulgence, but they’re so much fun. What can be better than two awesome cookies melded together?

4. Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

These start with boxed brownie mix, which makes for a quick dessert in a pinch. They’re fantastic and look more impressive than the effort they require.

3. Baked Chicken Chimichangas

I baked these instead of frying them to make a more-healthy version of one of our restaurant favorites.

2. BBQ Bacon Apple Chicken

This is a super simple recipe that we’ve been enjoying for a few years.  It’s perfect to toss in the crockpot before work on a chilly morning. It was featured in an article on Republic of Bacon earlier this year, which has added to the recipe’s popularity.

1. Chocolate Jack Daniel’s Cupcakes

I whipped these up for my brother’s going-away party and they quickly became the most popular recipe on the blog. They’re moist, chocolately and have a good kick of Jack to them so it’s easy to see why they’re a favorite!

Tomorrow, I’ll share my personal favorites from the year.
