Phew, what a year this has been. At this time a year ago, I don’t think anyone could have predicted how absolutely insane 2020 would be. While it was very much surreal a lot of the time, I think many of us tried to fill our days with delicious recipes and making the best of a crazy situation.

In keeping with tradition, it wouldn’t be the week between Christmas and New Year’s without the annual roundup of the most popular recipes on BEB.

I always love putting together this list and uncovering which recipes really stood out among readers throughout the year. I’d love to hear if your favorite made the list, and if it didn’t, tell me what it was!

Here we go!
