Top 10 THK Recipes of 2013 {}

Here at THK, 2013 was an amazing, wonderful year! After more than six months of planning, researching, and learning new technology (Grrrrrrr … 😀 ), we launched our blog in April, and it’s been a happy whirlwind ever since!

In case you missed any of them, here’s a recap of our 10 most popular recipes of 2013, as decided by you – our loyal readers (and how many times you viewed each recipe).

Ok, ok – technically our post on How to Cook Quinoa is our most popular post ever. (Our readers are definitely quinoa-crazy … and more quinoa recipes are coming soon!!!!) Also in our top 10 posts is our tutorial on How to Make Fruit Bouquets and Fruit Kabobs. But, since neither of these is technically a recipe post, we didn’t count them.

Bonus alert! We each also picked one of our personal faves that didn’t quite make the top 10 (but should have!). So, that’s 12 top recipes for the price of 10 – lucky you!

Top 10 THK Recipes of 2013 — 26 Comments

    • Hi, Susie! I know – wouldn’t this delicious burst of sunshine be so perfect for a frigid winter day like today!?!? I’m so glad to know that you love it … thanks sooooo much for taking the time to leave us a comment and let us know it’s a fave! Now hop right up and go make some (and then mail some my way, too)! 😀 ~Shelley

    • Happy 2014! We love that you’re excited to try more of our recipes! We had a long discussion about which recipe we would choose as our favorite – we love them all!! 🙂 It’s been fabulous getting to know you too, Debi! 🙂 ~G&S

  1. What a healthy round-up of wonderful recipes from 2013! I need to try that Corn, Edamame and Quinoa Salad with Lemon-Dijon Vinaigrette! Happy New Year

    • Happy New Year to you, Julia! You most definitely need to try the Corn, Edamame and Quinoa Salad! It is absolutely delicious, simple to make, and always a crowd pleaser! And the dressing … oh it is just SOOOO good!! 😀 ~G&S

    • Yes, Kristi – for sure make this one! Gretchen invented it at the request of her littlest daughter, and I’ve gotta tell you – my family fell head-over-heels in love with it, too! We were seriously addicted to how refreshing (and easy!) it is and made it all the time last spring and summer (you know … back before it was -20F here in Ohio! 😀 lol!). You’re gonna love this! ~Shelley

    • The Citrus Quinoa Salad is SOOOO good! It reminds me a salad I had at Disney over the summer – and I could have eaten it every day! It was just so fresh and delicious! Hope you love it as much as I do – and it’s a snap to make! 🙂 ~Gretchen

    • Thanks, Abbe! So here’s your dilemma … which Snack Bites to start with! Of the five different versions we’ve posted so far, it seems like everyone has their own favorite. As for us, it kinda seems like our fave is whichever one we happen to be eating at the moment! They’re all sooooooo good! And, people always seem surprised that such yummy little snacks can provide so much sustained, high-quality energy! We make big triple- and even quadruple-batches and keep them in the freezer! Yum! 😀 ~G&S

  2. Wow, without even realizing it, I have enjoyed eight of those “favorite ten”.
    I will be trying Gretchen’s “10 Minute Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal” and Shelley’s “Lightning Fast Cheesy Three-Pepper Ravioli with Italian Sausage”. Both look like new faves.
    I am looking forward to a new year of recipes from Two Healthy Kitchens!

    • Yes, yes, Ashley – make those Snack Bites soon! Our families both beg for more when we run out! I love them as a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon, my youngest takes them to school for a morning snack, and my husband eats them for dessert! And we love every kind! They are sure to be a hit at your house, too! ~Gretchen

    • Thanks, Consuelo! The Three-Pepper Ravioli is so fast and easy – yet so surprisingly delicious and satisfying! A total family fave I’ve made time and again since I first concocted it one hurry-up evening! 😀 ~Shelley

  3. Awesome, I love when I get 12 for the price of 10! I seriously love when I’m shopping and see one package has 10 and another has more for the same price. It’s a super lucky score 😀 Just as super lucky is finding you and your site! I love all that you have to share, especially the Three Pepper Ravioli with Italian Sausage! So easy and so tasty…I love it!
