Mom Loves Baking Top 10 Recipes of 2017

It’s that time of year again when I reflect on the recipes I posted in the previous year and share with you The Top 10 Recipes of 2017. It’s fun to look back and see which ones were your favorites. I’ve gone over the numbers in Google Analytics to find out which ones were in the top 10. Here they are in order from number 10 down to the number 1 most popular recipe on my site last year.

And there you have it! My Top 10 Recipes of 2017! Which one was your favorite? Or did you like one that wasn’t on this list?

Now it’s time for me to plan out my recipe ideas for 2018. I’m excited about making lots of fun treats this year. Some will be gluten-free and dairy-free so my daughter can eat them. Others will be desserts with all the classic ingredients as we are a household divided (my husband and son want all the “normal” stuff). I’d also like to bring out more of my grandmother’s special recipes. What would YOU like me to make in 2018? I’ve even made a Mom Loves Baking Vision Board with lots of my favorite ideas. One of the headlines on my board says “Must Try Cakes, Incredible Pies, Rich Tarts & Ultimate Cookies!” I think that pretty much sums it up!

Stay tuned for my first recipe of 2018!
