Reader's Top Ten Favorite Posts

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...A few weeks ago, I marked the 1000th post on One Perfect Bite. At that time, several of you asked which posts had been most popular with readers. I honestly didn't know and promised to do some research. I had time to do that today and came up with this list. I did have to laugh as I put it together, because not one of my personal favorites is on it. Here is the list of your top ten favorite posts. They appear in order of popularity. We'll do mine some other time.

I also received a nice surprise today. I was looking through my blog statistics and was puzzled to find a number of visits from the Smithsonian Food & Think blog. A little research led me to an article called The Hamburger: A Quintessential American Meal. While not mentioned by name, the article links to the post I had written on Salisbury Steak. Who'd have ever thunk it? I wonder if there's a Nobel Prize for meatloaf. I'd best get to work on my speech.











Pumpkin Butter





















Oven-Baked Baby Back Ribs
















Perfect Chocolate Cake



















Watermelon Smoothie




















"Real" Coffee Cake

















Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte























Refrigerator Dill Pickles



















Giant Lemon Sugar Cookies


















Triple-Chocolate Cheesecake




















Cranberry Layered Cheesecake

Your readers obviously have a sweet tooth! We seldom eat cake so my list would have been different I am sure but the pumpkin butter sounds wonderful, on my to-do list :-) Diane

Best,

For what it's worth, I've gotten more compliments recently (for which I quickly mentioned your name) for the Hawaiian banana bread than anything else I can recall. Good stuff, a real go-to recipe.

KarenP said...

Librarian said...

Hello Mary, thank you for stopping by at my blog - getting such a positive comment from someone like you, who is much more experienced and popular blog-wise, means a lot!
Congratulations on your 1000th post. The peanut butter chocolate torte looks like something I'd be ready to... well, not exactly to die for, but I think you get the idea :-)

Nami @ Just One Cookbook said...

What a collection! Do I have to pick one? just kidding. But I'd die for your Oven-Baked Baby Back Ribs! Just thinking about it make me drool non stop, Mary!

JG said...

The Refrigerator Dill Pickles and the Pumpkin Butter certainly got my attention! I'll have to try both.

Three-Cookies said...

Sweets are the clear favourite, by far. All look fantastic, and you've had the difficult task of tasting each one:)

Nourhan @ Miss Anthropist's Kitchen said...

Oooh, thanks for the roundup! These all look incredible--especially the cheesecakes :D

Lucy said...

The chocolate peanut butter torte is making my mouth water! Congrats on reaching 1000 posts - what an accomplishment!

Anonymous said...

I'm not sure how you judged the most popular recipes, whether by number of hits, or comments. But possibly you didn't get as many comments for your favorite recipes because the readers didn't stop to comment. They went right to the kitchen to make them! Thanks for the continued supply of lovely recipes.

I am so very hungry now. You are a gourmet goddess.

Alessandra said...

I am fascinated by blog statistics, and what people search and find on the net! Sometimes I think that if I had a blog about 'making your own cheese' I would get 10,000 visits per day! My post about making halloumi and ricotta has been the top viewed since ever!

Please publish you speech for the great meatloaf award for us!!! :-) If I weren't a vegetarian I would make you one!!

Ciao and have a great day!

Cheesecake and I go way back. We have been in love since my birth. And in a total switch - the refrigerator dill pickles also sing to me (no points for my weight watchers life).

Congrats on the 1,000 posts Mary - it's a huge accomplishment and your attention to detail and care lets me know that this is something you don't just dash off - but work at - and we all respond!

My Little Space said...

I love everything you posted up there. Just imagine how time flies.
