I published many recipes on FoodieCrush this year, and while I thought they were all good, this is YOUR list of readers’ top 20 favorites.
The best recipes are the ones we come back to time and time again — the ones that are the heart of of our ever-expanding repertoire and the ones that keep them asking for seconds.
This last year I tinkered and tested, made a lot of messes, and whipped up tons of winners along with a fair share of losers that you never even got to see. Hopefully I’ve inspired you to make memories in the kitchen and to make something good, because honestly, what’s better than enjoying a stellar meal with the ones you love?
I’m happy to bring you YOUR list of the 20 most popular recipes chosen by readers as your favorites. These are the recipes that were most clicked on/bookmarked/and hopefully cooked with by FoodieCrush readers in 2017. Some are new, some are favorites you obviously keep coming back to for more, but all of them were FoodieCrush favorites.
Happy eating, friends. :)
“I think of myself as an enchilada sauce snob. Not the type of sauce snob who makes my own, just the sauce snob who “knows” a good enchilada sauce when I encounter it. I have always wanted to try and make it myself, but had no idea where to begin. That is until I found this recipe. It is so easy to make. Not only do I love it, my picky kids love it too. They argued over who would get to lick the spoon! I highly recommend this recipe.” ~ Jamie
“This salad was fantastic! Perfect side dish to simple grilled chicken the other night. Yum!” ~ Bev
“Just made these! So yummyyyy! I added some fresh squeezed lemon too! Thanks! ~ Aleka Shunk
“Soooo delicious! Full disclosure, I skipped the “cabbage bath,” followed the dressing recipe, but only added the celery and kosher salts and pepper to taste. Just an absolutely amazing flavour! I have been searching for “the perfect” coleslaw dressing and this is, as the name implies, the best. Thank you Heidi..” ~ Cate
“I made this soup tonight and it was wonderful. I usually doctor up recipes but I didn’t do a thing to this one and it was delicious.” ~ Laura Dennison

“Made this for my family tonight when I was pressed for time to get dinner on the table. It was a big hit Thanks for a great recipe!” ~ Vivian
“These burgers turned out so well! All of the flavors really work well in the turkey burger and the my husband said that this is the best tzatziki sauce that he has ever had. Thanks for the recipe!” ~ Ana
“Hi, I wanted to let you know that I made this last night. Hubs could not get enough and proclaimed that we need to have it at least once a week in perpetuity. It was really delicious. I added celery and a small handful of blanched broccoli. Forgot the red onions, but we love them, so…next time. Love how versatile it is according to personal tastes and that it’s a great way to get lots of veggies in. Thank you!” ~ Linda
“When I read your post yesterday morning, I knew what I was making for dinner! I found the gnocchi, tomatoes and mozzarella at Trader Joe’s, had the fresh herbs growing in my garden and everything else in my kitchen! This came together quickly and tasted like it was from a five star restaurant! I will definitely be making this again and again! Thank you for sharing!” ~ Michelle
“Yummy recipe! Made these yesterday for a cookie decorating party and it was a great way to offset all of the sweets we were consuming.” ~ Ana
“This was truly absolutely amazing!!!! My whole family went crazy over these potatoes!!! The only thing different that I did was I added I’d say at least a teaspoon of garlic powder !!!! I love garlic❤️ Thank you so much!!” ~ Nancy
“This was DELICIOUS!!! So much good flavor! We used 2 Shock top Pumpkin wheat ales (24 oz). Your tips for the vegetables made them perfect! Thank you!” ~ Laurie
“I made this turkey roast for my family over the holidays. Huge hit! I was hoping for leftovers for sandwiches, but apparently my family was pretty hungry! Great recipe!” ~ Stefanie
“Fabulous summer salad. A new favorite for the whole family. Thank you so much for the recipe!” ~ Maren
“I sent this recipe to my husband last week and he made it. I think it is one of our new faves and we are excited to try it with different veggies and shrimp, etc. Thanks for making one of my favorite Thia dishes that I order out easy and delicious to make at home!! 🙂” ~ Avi
“This was the best recipe I’ve tried all year! I thought I had vegetable oil and then ended up not, so we substituted melted butter and WOW. We also threw some bean sprout in with the basil and cilantro. This dish couldn’t get any better. Thank you for the easy and fun recipe! Hopefully you have some more coming using that fish sauce, since I don’t know what else to do with it! 🙂” ~ Stephanie
“This is an outstanding list of breakfast ideas. While I always make time to fix us breakfast in the morning, I often get in a brekkie rut and make the same things. This list definitely brings some new inspiration my way – thank you!” ~ Denise
“Made this delicious chicken recipe this evening. It was so juicy and the skin was crispy, loved turning the chicken throughout the baking process. This is going to be my new baked chicken go to recipe.” ~ Patty
“Just tried this, to bring to a party tomorrow. it’s amazing. right now it’s late at night and i can’t stop thinking about it sitting in the fridge because i want some. but no…have to wait ’til tomorrow. thanks for sharing.” ~ Tracy
