Before we get started with the top 10 recipes of 2017, I would like to take a moment to say Thank You“. I appreciate y’all stopping by to visit, and your continued support. We’ve grown quite a bit this year on Facebook and started a new group where we can all share together.

Top 10 Recipes of 2017

10. Pineapple Casserole

This is the recipe that I almost forgot about! I was thrilled when I saw it at a restaurant this past summer and knew I had to share it with all of you (and to remind myself so I don’t forget about it again). You’ll find this dish at gatherings and it’s a delicious blending of some ingredients you might not expect.

3. Southern Skillet Fried Apples

Never dare call this dish a dessert. No. Absolutely. No. It is and always will be a side dish. A little scoop of ice cream wouldn’t hurt though  😉

1. Creamed Chipped Beef & Toast (S.O.S)

I could have never guessed this would be the recipe that went viral this year but it did. I became the chipped beef queen of 2017 because so many love this dish. HaHa!  This dish originated in our nation’s military. So many of you took time to share your fond memories of this dish. A recipe so simple but it has touched so many lives.

Julia, I love the new look of the blog. I have been cooking Chicken Livers wrong (and gross) for 50 yrs.....gonna give your recipe a try. I found your blog several months ago looking for SOS like my Daddy used to cook in the Army in the 1950's (he was a cook when he first joined.) I loved it.
