Taking a look back at Our Most Popular Recipes from the year is always one of my favorite things to do. I always challenge myself throughout the year to add more recipes, especially those we enjoy most in my family.
Of course we are counting down our Top 10 beginning with Number 10.
Number 10. Homemade Crescent Apple Turnovers
I love recipes using those yummy Crescent Rolls! This recipe making the Top 10 this year surprised me a little bit because it is actually from my first full year of blogging.
It’s a Crockpot recipe which means it frees up oven space when preparing a big meal. There are only 4 ingredients too and that makes it a winner for me!
You can’t have food without fun! Our Most Popular Family activities include:

Number 8. Homemade Vegetable Soup
A winter favorite at my house is a big pot of Homemade Vegetable Soup. Anytime we bake a ham, my hubby knows a pot of soup is not far behind. I like to freeze the ham bone and add it to soup for a delicious flavor addition.
Number 7. Mexican 3 Meat House Special Copycat Recipe
One of my favorite meals is this copycat recipe I created of the Mexican restaurant House Special. Every Mexican restaurant we visit has almost exactly the same House Special which is a combination of shrimp, chicken and beef. Some serve it over rice, others do not. Either way, it’s delicious and we love it so much we created our own version to make at home.

Number 6. Smoked Cornish Hen.
We had Smoked Cornish Hen for our New Year’s Meal to begin 2018. I shared the entire meal right here on my Instagram. Be sure to hit that heart! This year we are planning to smoke a turkey breast.
Number 5. Homemade Creamy Cole Slaw
See the Videos on our Facebook page to view me preparing this slaw! It is a simple easy recipe because we love using hacks and or cheats, whichever you prefer to call it. I like to call it an easy recipe.
Number 4. Glazed Baked Spam.
It’s easy and affordable. We tend to cook this dish more often in the winter months as a comfort food. Spam is a big deal, they even have their own festival! Did you know there is one state which loves Spam more than any other? Yep, visit the recipe to see which one.
Number 3. Oven Baked Smothered Cube Steak
This recipe for Oven Baked Smothered Cube Steak has always been popular ever since I first published it on the blog. I make it just like my Mom taught me. Any time I tell my hubby I’m making this for dinner, he leaves work a few minutes early to come home in the evening.
I make this easy recipe Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring because you can make foil pack dinners in the oven or on the grill. They take a few minutes to put together but are so worth it in the end.
We have a variety of foil pack dinners on the blog. Just type ‘foil pack’ into our search bar for more ideas or visit our Recipes>Entrees page.
Number 1 is our 3 Ingredient Crockpot BBQ Wings.
These are a big hit with anyone for any reason. My family loves these when we have celebration dinners and I love how easy they are to prepare.
