Best of 2013 – Top 12 Recipes on About a Mom

December is a month of holiday cheer, but it’s also a month of reflection as the year is coming to a close. I am looking forward to taking some needed time off later this month to think about what I have done this past year, both professionally and personally, and to form a plan of action for next year. Food has become a big part of this blog, as more and more of my favorite family recipes have been making an appearance. We’ve definitely shared more recipes in 2013 than ever before. I thought it would be fun to take a little trip down memory lane and take a look at the best of 2013 – the top recipes on About a Mom from this year.

Dessert recipes are always wildly popular, but I have been happy to discover that casserole recipes are still very sought after. I have always made a lot of casserole dinners for my family, but have moved away from the cream of soup recipes of the past to using more fresh ingredients. It seems that many of you are doing the same.

One of my greatest joys is getting an email or a comment from a reader to let me know that you enjoyed one of my recipes. I love hearing how you swapped out some of the ingredients to and adapt the recipe to suit your own family. It always gives me ideas for the next time I prepare the dish myself.

Which one of these recipes is your favorite?

    These are really great recipes to make and I like the Chicken Noodle Casserole because it is healthy and easy to make. I also like the Balava recipe. I would love to make these for the Holidays!

    Tank you for sharing all these great recipes. I would really love to try the Impossibly Easy Chicken Taco Pie recipe.

    LOL! This like asking, “Which one of your children is your favorite?” You guys have THE best recipes, bar none! How to pick one? But I were forced (ahem!) it would have to be the Spanakopita Recipe – it came out better than any I’ve had in so many Greek diners in NY. You all should be running a catering service!

    I am always on the lookout for new recipes to try with my kids. Trying to teach them young. Thank you for sharing.
