Most Popular Recipes 2015

The Most Popular Recipes 2015 on
I had a bit of a surprise while compiling this list of the most popular recipes from 2015 on Many of the most popular recipes had in fact been published in years gone by. At first I was taken aback, but then I was pleased. If recipes from previous years were still so popular as to be featuring in the top 10 then you must definitely be enjoying them as much as my family and I do!

So I resisted the temptation to feature just the most popular recipes actually published in 2015. Instead, I have chosen to feature the actual top 10 as chosen by you, my readers. The top 10 posts on the blog did include a couple of non-food posts but this compilation is just the most popular recipes.

The biggest surprise for me is that desserts are not the most popular recipes on the blog. It seems that vegetarian and fish recipes are among my readers’ chief favourites but you also like a sweet treat now and again. You are fans of healthier muffins too. Funnily enough, some of the most popular recipes from 2015 are the ones I make most frequently for my family. It looks like we are definitely on the same wavelength and that makes me very happy indeed.

So without further ado, here are the top 10 most popular recipes on as visited by you in 2015.

In first place, it’s my Cod with Mushroom and Spinach Sauce. An easy to make family dinner, this dish is good for you too.

  1. What a fantastic list! I can see why these are popular. It doesn’t surprise me that the veggie and fish dishes are your most popular, they all look so yummy. I need to try your Cod with Mushroom and Spinach Sauce and that veggie tart looks fabulous! I love me some veggies! Thanks for the collection!

  2. A super round up with lots of good ideas.

  3. It’s fascinating, isn’t it, to see which posts perform best. And this is a great reminder for me to try your Cod with Mushroom & Spinach Sauce recipe.
    Delighted to hear you are working on a cookbook. Maybe some of these will feature?

    • It is, I was really surprised which posts were most popular, Pauline. And they just might, although I’m mainly concentrating on old family recipes that I still make today 🙂

  4. Definitely can see why these were popular! I still drool when I see that quiche.

  5. What an incredible year of food blogging you have had April. Not only do your recipes tantalize our tastebuds, but your travel articles are crafted in such a way that we feel like we are right there beside you. I wish you a most fantastic 2016 and can’t wait to see what you dream up for us! Also, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the love and support you have given me this past year. I am so very appreciative!

    • Oh Linda, thank you so much! What lovely compliments! Thank you so much for all your love and support as well, I really do appreciate it. Wishing you a wonderful 2016!

  6. What an incredible collection. As I went through each one, I said to myself, ‘This is my favorite.’ Then, I came to another and said, ‘No, it’s this one.’ I found myself repeating the process over and over making it almost impossible for me to choose which one of these creations I like the best; fantastic job here my friend! I can’t wait to see what 2016 hold for you and your lovely and delicious site!

    • Thank you so much, Dan, for the compliments and your very kind words! Wishing you and yours a fantastic 2016 – I’m excited to see what you share at your wonderful Platter Talk too!
