Wow! This year just flew by, didn’t it?! It’s already time to share my annual most popular recipes post.

At the end of every year, I like to round up the recipes that you all loved the most. These are recipes that were created and posted in 2018, so they may not be the most popular of all time. It usually takes a while before recipes get noticed and become popular.

The exception to this rule is my most popular post of all time. It was posted at the end of 2017, but it immediately took off and soon became the most popular and most loved recipe on my site — crazy!

I also want to give a HUGE thank you to all of you for following, sharing, commenting and being loyal readers. You have all helped my little corner of the Internet grow and become successful, and I am incredibly grateful for that!
