Easy Weekly Menu 49: The Weary Chef's top dinner recipes for 2013!

Hi, hi, hi! Here we are, the last menu of 2013! I am not going to make a teary speech about the past year of blogging right now. I’ll save that for my actual one-year anniversary next month! Today, I just want to share with you an easy weekly dinner menu of my seven most popular dishes in order of most viewed. Looking at this list, I have learned two things: People like chicken, and reader’s favorites aren’t always the recipes with the best photos!

  1. Easy Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti – I have to admit, I thought this recipe was solid gold when I made it. When the words easy, cheesy, and chicken are together, you can’t go wrong! I hope you get to give this one a try soon if you haven’t already.Easy Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti - Super #easy dinner #recipe!
  2. Easy Chicken and Dumplings – This photo is a pretty early one taken with my phone. I don’t know why it’s so popular except that everyone knows that chicken and dumplings are good!Easy Chicken and Dumplings made with #Bisquick | The Weary Chef
  3. Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff – This stroganoff is good on its own merit, but I owe much of its popularity to my friend, Julie of This Gal Cooks, who included it in her wildly popular 10 Super Simple Crockpot Chicken Recipes roundup!Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff - You will love this #easy #slowcooker #stroganoff recipe! by @wearychef
  4. Cheesy Hasselback Chicken – This is another dish I was very excited to share when I tried it because I thought people would really like it. I didn’t realize just how much of a hit it would be!Cheesy Hasselback Chicken - A delicious, elegant chicken dish ready in 30 minutes!
  5. Stovetop BBQ Chicken – This one has been especially popular in search engine traffic. Everyone is looking for a good BBQ chicken recipe I guess!Stovetop Barbecue Chicken - 15 minutes is all you need for perfectly juicy #BBQ #chicken!
  6. Cabbage Roll Casserole – Thanks to RecipeLion for sharing this recipe a few times in their email newsletters and bringing many new readers to The Weary Chef!

  7. Lemon Chicken Pasta – Funny story about this recipe: It was very popular on Pinterest with my original phone photo seen here. I finally had a chance to make it again and take new photos, and the retakes never took off. That will teach me to mess with success!Easy Lemon Chicken Pasta - #easy, #healthy #pasta dinner! by @wearychef

wow–hasn’t even been a year yet? What a ride :-D I will bring kleenex to your Anniversary post ;-) Happy New Year’s to you and yours.

And that raspberry champagne cocktail? I’m hope now, so the bubbly is at the ready!

I can’t believe it hasn’t even been a year. I can hardly remember a time when my iPhoto wasn’t full of pictures of food ;)

Are you going to use sherbet or sorbet in your floats? I would have used sherbet, but there was no raspberry to be had at my grocery store. Can’t wait to hear what you think!
