Most Popular Recipes of 2019

2019 just flew by at a lightning speed and we now have a brand new year allowing us to make a better version of everything we are. I am not a resolution person but I sure do love looking back at the year and reminiscing the best moments. 

Most Popular Recipes of 2019

The one activity I look forward to the beginning of every month and year is to gather reports on how the blog has performed and what posts have made it to the top 10. It gives me an insight on you, the reader's favourites and helps me share more of such recipes. I was really excited to see some the newest recipe make it to the top 10! Although, this is the first time I am sharing a list of Top 10 most popular recipes of 2019 and hope to make it a blog tradition going forward. 

I gathered these top 10 popular recipes on my blog via Google Analytics report of total page views of these posts for the year 2019.
