Your Top 13 of 2013 {Most-Viewed Recipes of the Year!} (2024)

This is my favorite post to write each year! I love to look back through the year's posts and see what your favorites have been. I generally have a pretty good idea of what's popular with you from seeing the 'views' statistics each day, but when I go back through the entire year, there are always a few surprises for me! One thing that's really surprised me for this year is there are a lot more savory recipes in your top picks than in previous years. The top posts are usually about 95% sweets!

For the sweets you did put in the top 13 with your views, it's clear you sure love your no-bake treats! Over half of the sweets to make the most-viewed list are no-bake ... And oh, are they yummy ones!

And so ... without further ado ... here are your The Kitchen is My Playground top 13 picks of 2013. Enjoy!

13. Strawberry-Coconut Punch Bowl Cake- Your 13th pick of the year is one of my hubby's top picks of the year! He absolutely loves, loves, loves this classic Southern treat. In fact, he's come up with several other flavor combinations for me to create. {I just need to find the time to create them!}

12. Scrumptious Strawberry Cobbler- I have to agree with you on this easy strawberry cobbler ... it's one of my favorites of the year, too. Especially when I can get my hands on fresh-from-the-field local strawberries to make it with. So yummy.

9. Chocolate Valentine Kiss Cookies- These Valentine Kiss cookies were so fun to make! I used the dough from my Insanely Delicious Turtle Cookies{The Kitchen is My Playground's most-viewed post of all time} as the base, and then went to town with all kinds of fun sprinkles. Not only were these cookies a blast to create, this was also the first photo I ever took with the special 50mm camera lens my sweet hubby got me for Christmas last year. I love this photo!

1. 3-Ingredient Crescent Sausage Bites- And here it is, your top favorite of 2013! I have to admit I was very surprised when I posted these Crescent Sausage Bites and they immediately went wild. 'Cause I almost didn't even post them! They're one of those things we just throw together all the time ... and I just kinda quickly snapped a few photos of them one day. Turns out, we're not the only ones who love them!
