10. Asian Pork Tenderloin with Ginger Glaze (Slow Cooker): I just love throwing meat into my slow cooker and coming up with a dinner that looks like this. I love to make this meal low-carb by serving it with this Asian Cauliflower Rice.

9. Cinnamon Honey Butter: I love slathering this on rolls or toast! It also makes a great neighbor/host gift around the holidays. Whip it up when you make my Aunt Shirley’s Famous Dinner Rolls! Or these Big Fat Crescent Rolls! Yum:

8. My Mom’s Fudge: Okay so technically this is almost the recipe that was (is?) on the back of the marshmallow creme jar (“Fantasy Fudge”), but to me it will always be my mom’s fudge. She has made it for all the neighbors every year at Christmas for as long as I can remember. It is the best chocolate fudge out there. (My mom adds a little less sugar than the original recipe calls for).

7. 20-Minute Lemon Broccoli Pasta Skillet: That’s right my friends, 20 MINUTES. You just can’t beat weeknight recipes like this. Swap in whatever veggies you have on hand:

6. Nutella Stuffed Brown Butter Blondies:  I don’t really feel like I need to explain this one. NUTELLA.

5. Slow Cooker Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce: Crock pots for the win! I love how easy this curry is. There is also a stovetop version if you prefer. Eat it with this Homemade Naan!

4. Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts: You would not believe how easy and tasty this recipe is! Poor little Brussels sprouts often get a bad rap (I used to hate them) but that’s because people don’t know the secret about roasting. It takes them from “this smells like feet” to “Oh my goodness I’m going to eat this whole pan single handedly.”

3. Cilantro Lime Cucumber Salad: This recipe is perfect for anytime of year when you need a healthy side dish! It has a little kick to it, but nothing too crazy. We love this one!

2. Beef Barley Soup: This recipe is from my mother-in-law Kris, who got it from her mom. Kris told me this a while ago after re-reading the post, “I read all the comments on this soup, and I have to say I got a little teary eyed thinking about how well received my mother’s delicious soup has been, and how many families now love it and consider it a favorite. Really, I was blown away by all the positive comments after people made it!” This continues to be one of the most-made and most-loved recipes on the blog. (Update 2017: This recipe just hit 1 million page views. aaahhh!!)

1. Number ONE recipe on The Food Charlatan! >> Cuban Mojo Marinated Pork: A simple overnight marinade and an hour or two of roasting is all you need to get THAT CRUST. Make Cubanos (Cuban Sandwiches) with the leftovers. (Update 2017: this recipe also recently reached 1 million page views! Crazy right? That’s crazy.)
