It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a month now since most of us have been self-quarantining, self-isolating, sheltering place, and whatever else you want to call it. How is everyone doing food-wise?

I’ve gathered up all of the recipes on the site that have been getting an enormous amount of usage over the last month. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of BREAD BAKING going on! There are other types of recipes on this list, and perhaps you’ll find a new one that you’ll want to tackle while spending time at home.

Don’t forget to share some of your favorite recipes in the comments below!

1. My Favorite White Bread Recipe – Hundreds of thousands of you have made this bread over the last month, confirming how unbelievably easy it is and how perfectly it turns out each and every time.

2. Ciabatta Bread – Lots of folks are experimenting with this delicious Italian bread, as well.

3. Classic Burger Sauce – The absolute best burger sauce, which goes magnificently with my cast iron skillet cheeseburgers.

5. Grandma’s Banana Nut Bread – If you overbought on bananas and want to whip up a classic, old-fashioned banana bread, you’ll love this. If you want to kick things up a notch, try my peanut butter-banana bread with chocolate chips.

9. The Best Meat Sauce – My father-in-law’s legendary meat sauce is a must for keeping in the freezer, quarantine or no quarantine. Sub out the meat mixture with whatever is available or you can omit it totally.

10. Wacky Cake – This recipe hails from World War II and was popular because it requires no eggs, milk, or butter… and here we are. Crazy times! This is a delicious chocolate cake and I top it with a simple vanilla buttercream.

13. The Best Old-Fashioned Sticky Buns Recipe – Yesss make it a weekend morning any day of the week; these are so caramel-y and sticky and delicious.
