Another year has come to an end, and I always like to look at which posts were the most popular during the year. I love looking back and seeing which recipes you, my readers, have enjoyed the most. This year, there were some surprises in the list as well as a couple of returning recipes. Check out our countdown below to discover the most popular post on Patty Cake’s Pantry for 2017.
I created this recipe for an elderly friend who passed away this year. She had been craving the food from her childhood and specifically reminisced about her mother’s red cabbage. I’m not certain if it’s an authentic “Apfelrotkohl,” as she called it, but it tasted good and was great served with roasted bratwurst and potatoes.
This is a recipe that my mother always prepared for Easter, but occasionally, she would make it for other special occasions. It’s a simple combination of rice, canned pineapple, marshmallows and whipped cream that was always a childhood favorite. This is a great way to use up leftover rice.
This recipe has fallen from position 6 last year to position 8, but it’s still going strong, and is very popular with our visitors. These are a favorite in our family, and we frequently make our ribs in the pressure cooker then finish them off on the grill or in the oven to get some good carmelization on them. Carmelization actually adds flavor to these ribs.
I never realized how versatile hominy could be until I made this casserole. This is so creamy and cheesy that it’s hard to believe that it’s made from only 4 ingredients. You’ll love this simple combination of flavors.
This post is down from its position as number 5 last year, but it still gets plenty of visitors. Of course, who wouldn’t love to have a delicious baked potato in half of the time. We finish these in the oven to ensure that they had a little bit of crispiness to the skin. Pressure cooker “baked potatoes” are delicious.
I have to confess that I really love roasted vegetables. They’re simple to prepare, and that’s a big plus on a busy weeknight. The best thing about roasting carrots it that they become sweet. That makes them very appealing. Roasted baby carrots are sure to become a favorite with your family like they are with ours.
This isn’t a recipe, but I’m very happy to see that it’s among our most popular posts. It’s a great thing to make homemade popsicles. If you make them yourselves, you can be certain that you know what’s in them, but not all popsicle sticks are created equally. I’m glad to see that this information is being disseminated.
This pie is an American Original. Its roots are in the culture of African America Muslims. It’s an alternative to sweet potato or pumpkin pie and is a surprisingly delicious dessert that’s great on your holiday table. It’s delicious for any celebration meal, too.
I have fallen in love with sheet pan dinners, or in my case, dinners cooked entirely in 9X13 inch baking pans, so I’m not surprised how popular this post has become at Patty Cake’s Pantry. This recipe is very simple and delicious, and I love that once I’ve placed everything on the pan, or pans, I don’t have anything to do for 45 – 60 minutes. Dinner simply takes care of itself. I frequently pair this recipe with the slow cooker red cabbage and apples recipe above.
This recipe has moved up from fourth place in 2016 to first place in 2017. Beans and ham are a tradition in my family, and using the pressure cooker gets them on the table in less than half of the time. Served with a pan of moist and delicious corn bread, this makes a very satisfying meal. Beans are also an excellent source of protein. They’re a frugal food, too.
