This post is one of my favorite posts of the year!! I share this “Popular Recipes” post every year at about this time. Surprisingly, it’s always one of my more popular posts. I never think you’ll really enjoy any type of round-up style post because there’s no new recipe. But you guys have shown me otherwise. I guess it’s nice to have everyone’s favorite recipes all in one place for easy reference!

Personally, I love this post because it’s so fun to see all the major recipes hits. Many of which I would never have guessed would be so popular. Sometimes I share out recipes and think they’ll fall totally flat, but then you end up loving them! So this most popular recipes of the year post is always fun for me to see what makes the cut! 

Before I dive into the recipes, I really just want to say a huge thank you to you all. It’s been so much fun seeing what everyone has been cooking and baking, especially this holiday season. I said this at Thanksgiving, but we’ve never seen so many HBH recipes being made…even more so this year than last! There’s been a whole lot of cocktail mixing, cinnamon roll baking, pasta tossing, and so much cookie baking. It’s incredible, and I’m extra thankful for you guys and your constant support and kindness. We love our little HBH family.

I hope you guys are having an amazing holiday break!!

  1. I bought the Every Day cookbook and it jumps from page 214 to page 241. Some pages are repeated. Has this been a problem for others or is it a one off? Just thought you should know!

    1. Hi Paula,
      Thanks so much for purchasing the cookbook, so sorry to hear this! Where did you order from? I would reach out to them to they can replace the book for you!! xxTieghan

  2. I am so grateful that a friend told me to follow you a few years ago. I make my shopping and dinner list with your website up every week. We have loved everything we have tried! I have told all of my friends about you and gotten several of them hooked, too. Thank you so much for having inspiring recipes that are easy to cook and delightful to eat.

    1. Hey Page,
      Thank you so much for you kind message and trying so many recipes! I love to hear that you have been enjoying them. Thanks for being here:) xTieghan

  3. Thank you so much for all the delicious recipes! My family enjoys your recipes almost every night if I am cooking! (My husband is not a recipe person but I LOVE having your recipes as my guides and I am that person that when you write “cook 5 more minutes” I am so incredibly grateful for that amount of detail😂) because of you I have fallen in love with cooking and feel confident in my ability to make a delicious meal. We hardly eat out anymore because your food is si much better.

    I have a history of complicated relationship with food and have not always nourished myself as I should in the past. I love that your recipes are all made with real, whole, good ingredients! And I love love love that you never slam diet culture and calorie counting down our throats. Your food is nourishing and never shaming. And I just love you so much for that. Thank you Tieghan!!

    Ps I had never cooked meat without the instant pot and you totally taught me how! 😂🙌 and my husband could not be more grateful. Also I made six different kinds of your cookies for our friends and neighbors this Christmas and they were all a HIT. I will never stop telling people about you!

    1. Hey Natalie,
      Thank you so much for your super kind message! I am so glad you have been enjoying the recipes and truly appreciate you making them! It really means so much to me:) xTieghan

  4. I can’t wait to make more of these recipes but our favorite is the Indian butter chicken. It’s so delicious but I need to start making my own naan 😉

  5. I’ve made most of these!! Top at our house are Thai peanut ramen and one skillet chicken sun dried tomato and orzo! Both so good!

  6. I’ve made the white chicken chili at least 5 times since it was posted, my family loves it! I even made it on Christmas day, it was a big hit! I like to toss in some sliced carrots and a handful of frozen kale to add some veggies. Made the Mustard Chicken and Orzo and the Christmas Monster Cookies, too! Looking forward to trying more recipes this year!

  8. I’ve made so many of these! Just made the hamburger helper (added bacon that needed to be used) and it was incredible. In fact, I think I have some leftovers to eat tonight! Loved your monster cookies, all the asian recipes, and was as obsessed with all your chicken orzo dishes as everyone else must have been! You make everything look and taste SO beautiful! Thank you for another incredible year of sharing your recipes with us!
