The Best of BEB in 2017: 20 of My Favorite Recipes

My all-time FAVORITE RECIPES of 2017! Easy recipes, sweet, savory, and delicious!

A collage of photos of the favorite recipes listed in the post.

Yesterday, I shared my annual roundup of the 10 most popular recipes on Brown Eyed Baker that were made during 2017. While many of those on that list were my favorites, there were also a ton of recipes that I fell in love with this year that didn’t make the cut. I want to share my personal favorites with you that didn’t make the top 10 list, so I put together this follow-up roundup, which features 20 of my favorites from 2017. It was agonizing to pare this list down; there are so many more recipes I want to include! These are the recipes that I made over and over, tried to hide from others, and cried when they were gone.

Enjoy browsing the list, and feel free to share any recipe requests for 2018 in the comments below!

(Recipes are listed in chronological order, January through December.)
