It’s time for one of my FAVORITE annual traditions: discovering Your Favorite Recipes of 2023!

A collage of recipe images

Each year, I take time to sort through all the new recipes we shared, deciphering which ones were the most popular in your homes.

I always find it fascinating to learn what types of recipes most interested you over the past year!

So, what recipes topped the charts this year?

  • Beef recipes were a hit! From a cheesy ground beef casserole to a juicy steak sandwich, beef was king.
  • You also loved side dishes. With scrumptious options like bacon Brussels sprouts, arugula salad, and homemade potato chips, there was something to accompany every meal.
  • The air fryer also made multiple appearances on this year’s list (as it has for the past few years).

No matter which recipes earn the spotlight each year, I’m always profoundly grateful for each and every one of you who visits the site, tries my recipes, and shares your feedback.

I find so much joy and purpose in your reviews, emails, and photos.

THANK YOU for being a part of the Well Plated community and for bringing my recipes into your homes!
