First, can we discuss the rate at which 2018 flew by? Was it the blink of an eye or the flap of a butterfly’s wings? 2019 is knocking on our doors and we can’t look forward to a new year without reflecting back on the previous. What was the best part of your 2018?
I LOVE looking back on the year and seeing which recipes have been your favorite. What’s most exciting is when a recipe I published that year falls into the top ten category, especially since that recipe has 7 years of page views to compete with. (See #7!)
I gathered these top 10 popular recipes from looking at the page views of my posts as well as the positive reviews. If you’re looking for the best of the best on SBA, these 10 recipes are it!

#6 Chocolate Buttercream

#4 Salted Caramel
#3 Best Banana Cake
#2 Super Moist Chocolate Cupcakes
#1 20 Minute Honey Garlic Shrimp
And my personal #1? It’s so hard for me to choose as I have about 1,000 recipes between my website and cookbooks, so I’ll narrow it down to a favorite recipe published on the blog in 2018. No-Bake S’mores Cake is most definitely my favorite 2018 recipe! So simple and that toasted marshmallow meringue is absolute heaven.
