Happy 1st Birthday, Chew Nibble Nosh!

Today marks Chew Nibble Nosh’s very 1st birthday!  

It’s so hard for me to believe that one year ago today, I nervously clicked the “Publish” button on my blog dashboard for the very first time.  I was a wreck over it, to be honest.  Throwing myself out, into the web-world was intimidating, to say the least.  This Fattoush Salad recipe was my very first post.  It’s simple, and sweet, and the picture of Avery’s hand makes me smile.  She told me she wanted to be “on the computer”, and so, she is.

Since that day, I’ve learned more than I ever imagined, and I still have a lot to learn.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so patient with me and supporting me as I’ve started out on this crazy journey!  It’s been an amazing, whirlwind of a year.  But now, I’m at the point where I can’t imagine NOT hitting that “Publish” button a few times a week.

Today, I thought I’d change things up a bit and do a top ten list.  These recipes are the Top Ten Most Popular Recipes on Chew Nibble Nosh from the past year.  They may have made the list because they received the most number of hits, or their Pinterest numbers are through the roof.  A few of them are there just because they are the recipes that people are constantly telling me they made.  I love hearing from all of you, so keep the comments coming!

Starting off with number 10, we have one of my favorites for fall,

Browned Butter Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats.

Just retrieving this picture makes me want to whip up a batch.

Number 9?

Crispy Smashed Roasted Potatoes

These are so good, and I don’t make them as often as I should.  They will be on next week’s menu!

Rolling into the number 8 spot is the recipe for one of my favorite ways to blow a diet, Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites.

I dream of that frosting.  I really do.

Onto number 7, Southwestern Corn Dip

This was the first recipe from Chew Nibble Nosh that the Pinterest community really seemed to love.  It still brings in loads of hits from Pinterest, even though I published it almost a year ago.  Thanks, Pinners!

Number 6 on the list is the recipe for Slow Cooker Cincinnati Chili.

I’ve learned that people love a good Crock Pot recipe.  Thankfully, this is one of them!  (Hmmm…this one may have to go on the menu for next week as well.)

Number 5 was actually a surprise favorite,

Fruity Kool-Aid Candied Popcorn

I didn’t expect to like this.  I made it for my girls’ classes at the end of the year because I thought it would be fun!  I was pleasantly surprised at how much the adults seemed to enjoy it…myself included.  After looking at the stats, I guess you guys enjoyed it as well!

Number 4 on the list is my recipe for Baked Gnocchi with Zucchini and Tomatoes.

This was a twist on one of my favorite recipes that was handed down from my Grandmother.  I’m honored that you enjoyed it so much, and I’m sure she’s looking down at all of you with a big, satisfied smile on her face.

(Oooh!  Top Three!)

In 3rd place, we have Three Cheese Artichoke Bites .

One thing I’ve learned about you this year, is that you love a good appetizer, and you like cheese. This one makes sense, then!

Coming in second, it’s the

Almond Crusted Chicken Salad with Peaches and Balsamic-Buttermilk Dressing

This is another one that loves to make the rounds on Pinterest.  It was also featured over at the wonderful blog, Six Sisters Stuff.  It needs to make another round through my kitchen, as far as I’m concerned.

Finally, the moment I know you’ve all been waiting for.  THE most popular recipe of the past year on Chew Nibble Nosh is…

Not Fried Pickles!!

This recipe, from my little blog, has been pinned onto Pinterest more than 1,000 times.  It was a featured post on the BlogHer network and continues to be the post with the most hits almost every single day, even when there’s a new post up! I just checked and it’s in the lead for today already! You guys sure do love your pickles!!!

Thank you for taking this little trip down recipe memory lane with me.  It’s been a wonderful, exciting year for me and I’m eager to see what year two will bring for all of us.  Whatever it brings, I hope it’s delicious.

  1. Congratulations! I have enjoyed not only reading each and every post but also expanding my cooking experience. Keep up the delicious fun!

  2. Congratulations, my friend! What an accomplishment. You should be very proud (I’m proud of you)!! Does this mean you get a night off from the kitchen tonight – or is now allowed when celebrating a food blog anniversary? : ) In any event, congratulations!!

    • Haha! Thank you! I do get a night off tonight, but not in honor of the blog. It’s a crazy busy Brownie meeting night, and Aaron’s working late, so it’s either sandwiches or a quick bite out for me and the girls. 😉

  3. Congrats! So proud of you and happy for me. Sadly I’ve only made two on the list, but I’m having a week of meals dedicated to Chewnibblenosh’s first birthday. Summer corn salad last night, just had coconut pecan cheesecakes for desert, making the peanut sauce shrimp (I’m subbing chicken) tonight, tomorrow the penne sundried tomatoes with artichokes. Thanks for being the first place I look when I’m making my grocery store list. I leave my meal planning to you and feel completely “food rut” free! Loves!

    • Sounds like a a yummy week! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it!! I’m still thinking of that frosting, thanks to you. 😉

  4. Frosting? Did someone say frosting??? Where is the recipe?
    Oh, yeah. Congratulations, Christine!

  5. I have tried several recepies, and I have loved every single one. Thanks for taking the time to do this blog, everything I am in a pinch and want a great recipe I can always count on you.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kristi! I am off to check off your site now. We’re a BIG Disney family and it’s so nice to meet someone in the know! 🙂
