2018 is winding to a close and before we leap ahead to 2019 and all of the great things that are in store, I thought we’d talk about our FIVE recipes that got the most hits in 2018. (I won’t lie-they were a little surprising!) I can tell now what our readers are interested in, and I bet we’ll bring you more of it in 2019, after all, we want to inspire you to get into the kitchen! (although definitely if you have a special request, just let us know in the comments section at the end of this post, we’d love to hear!) Without further ado…here are our five most popular recipes of 2018!
Although none of these recipes were actually POSTED in 2018, these are the five most searched/read/printed recipes from WithTwoSpoons.com in 2018! Interestingly there isn’t a salad amongst the bunch!
No surprise here! These Cinnamon Sugar Mini Donuts were developed for a recipe round up featuring the Minnesota State Fair which is also called the Great Minnesota Get Together! You can find these little delicacies at the fair itself, or if you avoid crowds (like me), you can just make them at home. Your kids will LOOOOVVVVVEEEE these. Trust me.

Less of a surprise, this simple Instant Pot Chipotle Black Bean Soup utilizes dried beans and the smoky heat of chipotles to create a warm, comforting bowl of soup. Throw everything into your Instant Pot and walk away while your Pot does the work!

More comfort in a bowl! Reminiscent of the soup my mom used to give me as a kid, this one also utilizes dried beans, bacon, and rough cut vegetables to create a bowl of savory goodness. And, I guess you all really like using your Instant Pots! (Me too! Me too!)

Easy, fast, able to be made ahead, AND healthy. Sounds too good to be true. Nevertheless, these egg white muffins check all of the boxes. Plus they are easy to customize which is perfect for families with picky eaters. One tip: get your picky eaters eating these with whatever they love and then slowly start introducing small amounts of other flavors. Your kids will go from picky to versatile!

And our most searched/read/printed recipe of our Five Most Popular Recipes…. (drum roll please)…..
Flavorful, saucy, tender pulled pork made in the Instant Pot. Mostly hands off, this one will cook for you while you are doing something else (laundry? play with your kids? read a book? whatever floats your boat!). Poach, or fry an egg over easy, to put on top of this beauty and you will have a happy tummy indeed!
