    The Most Popular Recipes of 2022

    There’s definitely a theme to the most popular recipes of 2022 and you’ll note most of these dishes are.

    • Easy – low-fuss recipes that don’t skimp on flavor
    • Quick – you all loved shortcuts like the Air Fryer! We all appreciate getting dinner on the table fast.
    • Budget-friendly – inflation hit America’s pocketbooks this year so it’s not surprising that the top recipes were also affordable options. these recipes prove you don’t have to spend a fortune to eat well.
    • Traditional – many of you were making recipes that are old comfort foods like Sloppy Joes and Chili. Nostalgic recipes will never go out of style.
    • Family Friendly – I’m pretty sure all these recipes also land in the kid-friendly category (i.e. recipes that your kids will love and actually eat). That makes me so happy as one of our core values is happy and healthy families.

      I’ve been watching you on you tube for awhile. Checking out your written recipes I’m so disappointed that none of them have ingredient amounts. I wouldn’t want to have to guess at how much of something to put in. So many look good.

      I have missed getting your emails, posts, and recipes! Not sure why they stopped. I adopted Anna when she was 9 from an orphanage in Nizhny Novgorod (now married w/2 little boys). Would love more Ukraine and Russian recipes, especially Borscht w/beets and just beets. Do you still do video instructions and also how do I search for these videos. Blessings and thank you so very, very much for keeping my Anna’s Russian foods her childhood when she was first here. Suzan (in Charleston, SC now.)

      Natasha, I love your recipes, have made so many of them, they are now my go to source if I am out of ideas. My family’s favorite still is the Mushroom stuffed pork tenderloin, a must for every Christmas. Made several times your meatloaf, the Tuscan chicken. I love your Chicken pot pie Soup. There are too many to list here!
