Top 20 Recipes of 2020

In this post I’ll be sharing our annual year end feature with the Top 20 Recipes of 2020.

Let’s face it friends, 2020 was a doozy of a year! There’s just no denying it. We all went through an experience like none we’ve ever known before.

A year ago we were all ringing in the new year with Barbara Walter’s voice in our heads saying her famous line “welcome to 2020” and here we are now saying “Good Riddance 2020”. And don’t you come back!

This year brought with it record breaking weather events, a global viral pandemic, and the world shutting down.

We also cannot forget Prince Harry leaving the Royal Family (Megxit), Kids going to school virtually and a crazy toilet paper shortage. WHEW! Seriously, what was up with the toilet paper and Tiger King???

The year didn’t pass us by however without blessings. We always have our blessings to be thankful for even during the toughest of times.

Families were eating together around the table at home and spending time together. A lot of folks were even learning how to cook for the first time.

Home cooked meals became more popular than they’ve been in years and I’m breaking down the top favorites here on the blog.

Top 20 Recipes of 2020

Let us begin with the top 10 recipes of 2020 that were published this year.
