Our 10 Most Popular Recipes of 2019
Of all the new recipes we created this year, several stunning desserts and three impressive main courses were our readers' favorites.
At the end of each year, we like to highlight the best of the best from the past 12 months. Here, we're sharing the brand-new recipes that we created in 2019 that our readers (you!) loved most. From an easy version of corned beef and cabbage made in an Instant Pot to stunning desserts like the Chocolate-Chip Oat-Coconut Skillet Cookie pictured here, we're proud to share the recipes that you couldn't get enough of.
Of course, our founder is known for her stunning, sweet desserts. One of the most popular recipes from this year was our Lime Pudding Cups—and they couldn't be easier to make. Just heat heavy cream, sugar, and lime zest in a sauce pan until it is boiling and reduced. Mix in plenty of fresh lime juice for a tart, bright flavor, refrigerate, and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and crushed graham cracker crusts. Bring them to a party on a warm summer day—a cool scoop of these will taste so refreshing.
Looking for a super impressive main dish for a dinner party? We have two fabulous options. First up is Roasted Branzino with Lemon and Thyme; if you've never cooked a whole fish before, this is the best way to learn. Thoroughly rub olive oil and salt on the fish skin, which helps it to get crispy and flavorful, then stuff the fish with lemon slices and thyme leaves. Bake on a roasting pan, then cut it open to reveal the flaky meat inside.
Another dish that's sure to be a winner is our Peruvian-Style Roast Chicken and Potatoes. The chicken is rubbed with a spice blend of cumin, sweet paprika, oregano, and salt and pepper. It's one of the most flavorful roast chicken dishes we've ever tasted—and don't even get us started on those crispy potatoes.
Celebrate the end of a wonderful year—and the start of the new one—with our tasty and timeless recipes.
Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage
With this Instant Pot recipe, it takes less than two hours to create a super tender, aromatic beef brisket for St. Patrick's Day. Mustard seeds, black peppercorns, juniper berries, allspice, and bay leaves infuse the cooking liquid with classic corning flavors and transform the meat into a flavorful main course.

Roasted Branzino with Lemon and Thyme
Roasting a whole fish may seem intimidating, but our method is truly simple (and spectacular). Any meaty fish, such as Arctic char or red snapper, can be substituted and will work well in this recipe.
