Top Ten Recipes of Last Year:


Baked Pork Chops with Cream of Mushroom Soup - this easy pork chop recipe remains the top recipe on the site and for good reason! It's delicious and did I mention EASY?


Meatloaf Muffins - a jump from #3 to #2! And one of my family's favorites! I use my Classic Meatloaf recipe and bake in muffin pans so you get extra crispy edges on each one! We love to make up a double batch and keep some in the freezer for busy nights.

Easy Apple Crisp with No Oats - Lots of people are looking for a great apple crisp recipe with a streusel that doesn't call for oats and this recipe is perfect! Make it in one dish for easy clean-up.


Granny's Fried Apple Pies - This one had a big jump from #8 to #4 and for good reason! These are the real deal fried apple pies, not the factory kind or even the fancy ones you get at the apple farm. These are made the way Southern grandmas used to make them!


Fudge Pie with Cocoa - a perennial favorite, this Fudge Pie has been in my top 10 since it was posted. You can make it in less than an hour with just pantry ingredients. Perfect for potluck!
