Here we are, at the end of 2015. It’s been a year of royal births (Princess Charlotte), Royal wins (go Kansas City!), and here on Well Plated, recipes you have deemed royally tasty.
The end of a calendar year, for me, is a natural moment of reflection, and so I wanted to take the opportunity to look back at the 146 (!) new recipes I published here on Well Plated in 2015. First of all, WOW. That is a lot of food and dishes and me chatting away at you. Thank you for being here and supporting me through those recipes. They wouldn’t mean a thing if I couldn’t share them with you.
Secondly, you had favorites! Of those 146, several stood out as consistent winners, and you’ve made some of these over and over again. I can’t say enough how much joy it brings me to think of these dishes finding life in your kitchen.
I did a little number crunching, and today, I’ll be highlighting the 15 most popular recipes from 2015, as well as sharing what you had to say about them. From easy-to-make muffins, to comforting chili, to green smoothies, to the most decadent of chocolate treats, your favorite recipes represented a little bit of everything, for every season.
Let’s take a look.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made these!!! The boyfriend is obsessed too, to the point that it’s almost become a joke, because we keep finding excuses to cook them. They are so easy and have so much flavor. We love them in tortillas, but honestly I like them plain too. Thanks for a great recipe! – Susie
This dressing is INCREDIBLE! I cannot get enough. I think the trick is real anchovies with a good quality parmesan. Thanks for posting!! – KR
Hi Erin! I made this dish last night. I couldn’t believe the aroma of all the ingredients when I was cooking, it was unreal. My hubby came into the kitchen because of the amazing smell. It tasted equally delicious! I’m loving your blog and can’t wait to make more of the recipes! Thanks for sharing! – Vanessa
Made these over the weekend with my kids, and you are right—they are PERFECT! This will be my go-to cut out cookie recipe now. The cream cheese makes them so soft and the dough was really easy to work with too. My only regret is not doubling the recipe. We devoured the whole batch in 2 days! – Joan
#11. Mississippi Mud Pie Bars
Followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious!! – Sharon
Saw this on Pinterest and made it half an hour later. Lol. They came out very moist and delicious! I am constantly craving chocolate, so this curved my sweet tooth beautifully. – Morgan
It was delish! Very flavorful and it was indulgent without the guilt…I’ll be making this every week for my meal prep so I can eat it out the fridge, and it travels well…Thank you! – J.
I found this recipe a few months ago, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made it since! I’ve sent it to all my family and friends, and we are all obsessed with it! …I even shared the recipe with a lady in the grocery store when she asked what I was making!! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes! <3 – Jessica
I noticed a big typo. You state that this recipe yields 16 bars, but your hand must have slipped when typing. This is obviously a single serving- it’s one serving, right? How else can you explain why I ate the whole pan? These are amazing and so easy you can put them together while holding a “helpful” 5 month old! – Korby
Just cooked this dish for dinner and it was so yummy! Simple ingredients, yet full of wonderful flavor. Thank you for sharing! :) – Kathryn
Made this for breakfast this morning with a baby kale mix and vanilla yogurt and it was amazing!! I’m not sure if this is supposed to taste this good and be healthy for you! – Nachole
I made this for a beach party tonight. It was a hit. Simple to make and something different than the usual sour cream, mayo, or cream cheese-based dips. It’s a keeper!!! – Kathy
Just had this for dinner tonight, and it did not disappoint! Thanks so much for the recipe! I will most certainly be making again. – Ashley
Looking for something both delicious and light while dieting is a difficult feat. I want to thank you entirely, I made this last night and it was beyond my expectations!!! Cheap, easy, and bursting with flavor!!! Thank you! – Benjamin
and the most popular recipe of 2015…
Made these this morning and they are so delicious! My kids devoured them and told me I needed to make a whole bunch and keep them for school! Thanks for the recipe! – Jessica
