Needless to say, 2020 has been.....weird. A year of unprecedented times, tons of change and lingering unknowns. But looking back on the year, I've been blessed beyond belief! We welcomed our second daughter in February, made the decision to move to the family farm and take a little leap of faith in our careers.
Thanks to all of you loyal followers and fans, I was able to quit my "eight-to-five" job to focus on my blog! I can honestly say I LOVE what I do and cannot even begin to tell you how much I appreciate the support, whether that's viewing my recipes, commenting on social media, leaving reviews or sharing with friends. It means the world to me and this business of mine! <3
Onto the good stuff.....the TOP 10 Recipes! Out of over 80 new recipes in 2020, these were the 10 with the most page views....
#10. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cobbler
Coming in at #10 was the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cobbler. What's not to love when you've got fudgy chocolate cake, fudgy sauce and a little peanut butter to top it all off?!
#9. Salted Nut Roll Bars
Salted Nut Roll Bars snagged the #9 spot on the 2020 list. This was a recipe I grew up with and still love to this day!! It's got a chewy base, a soft marshmallow center and a crunchy, sweet & salty topping!
#8. Crock Pot Chocolate Cobbler
Crock Pot Chocolate Cobbler slid into the #8 spot. This was really no surprise as it's become clear that you all LOVE a good chocolate-y cobbler! In fact, Chocolate Cobbler was the #2 recipe for the year in 2019!
#7. Honey Garlic Pork Chops
Coming in at #7 was the Honey Garlic Pork Chops. I LOVE these pork chops. They're saucy, full of flavor, juicy, tender, easy to make....okay, you get my drift....they're delish.
#6. Toll House Pie Bars
Toll House Pie Bars slides into the #6 spot for 2020. These bars have a pie crust base and a creamy, chewy, chocolate chip cookie filling. And if you've got a raging sweet tooth like me, you'll top it with hot fudge and ice cream for the ultimate dessert!
#5. Hamburger Steaks with Mushroom Gravy
In the #5 spot was another favorite of mine growing up, Hamburger Steaks with Mushroom Gravy. These hearty hamburger steaks are full of flavor and surrounded by a dreamy mushroom gravy!
#4. Ding Dong Cake
Ding Dong Cake clenched the #4 spot for the year. This one was an instant hit with Dance Around the Kitchen followers....then again, just look at this cake. It's simply divine!
#3. Blueberry Cream Cheese Bars
In third place was the Blueberry Cream Cheese Bars! These have a little bit of everything - a buttery crumb topping, creamy filling and tart, juicy berries!!
#2. Banana Pudding Dessert
Our 2020 first place runner-up, was Banana Pudding Dessert! Take one bite of this no-bake dessert and you'll know exactly why this deserves all the accolades it gets!
And holding the title of Top Recipe of 2020 is….
#1. TWINKIE CAKE!
Oh Twinkie Cake how I adore you!! Moist layers of yellow cake surround a smooth fluffy filling like in a classic Twinkie, but so much better! It's really no surprise this one snagged the top honors this year - everyone who's tried it seems to love it!
