My Top 10 Recipes from 5 Years of Blogging | cookincanuck.com #recipe #top10

When you hit those big birthdays…30, 40, 50 and so on…do you get as sentimental as I do? I need a couple of days to look through all photos and relive memories from the past five or ten years. My poor family would be wise to leave the house, or just sit me in front of a plate full of sushi to keep my quiet.

Well, I’m going through one of those sentimental times with my blog this week. As I mentioned on Friday when I chatted about My Top 10 Tips for Bloggers, Cookin’ Canuck just turned five.

So, I sat down with a bowl of soy sauce and cayenne-doused soba noodles (one of my many comfort foods) and scrolled through some of my favorite recipes and posts from the past five years.

And then I decided to get analytical about the whole thing, which just means that I looked up my stats in Google Analytics to find out what YOUR favorite posts were. My Health and Weight Loss Journey post was one of them, but I wanted to make it all about the recipes.

(For those of you who came for the regular Sunday running post, I promise that we’ll be back to regular programming next week.)

So, here they are…your top 10 favorite recipes:

#1 Hearty Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash & Quinoa

I love all of these recipes, but my FAVORITE is the brie-strawberry-agave nectar-basil-on-little-toasts appetizer. It always gets RAVES. Thanks!!
