As it turns out, the most viewed recipes here on How Sweet It Is tend to be of the sugary, chocolatey, gluttonous variety. I don’t blame you.


But since I’ve been holed up on my couch in a snuggie for the last 72 hours, I’m going to share the 10 most viewed delicious dinner recipes with you. I’ve eaten more hoho cake, cake batter bark, and red velvet cake balls than can fit in my fridge and all I really want to see is a piece of chicken.

And now Mr. How Sweet just fell in love with me all over again.


10. Crispy BBQ Chicken Fingers


9. Loaded Veggie Enchiladas



8. Loaded Baked Nachos


7. Easy Enchilada Lasagna


6. Easy One Pot Tortilla Soup



5. Crunchy Honey Chicken



4. Moroccan Vegetable Soup



3. Chicken Chickpea Soup



2. Chicken Mac & Cheese



1. Buffalo Chicken Burgers



Back to regularly fattening scheduled programming tomorrow. Have you tried one of these recipes? What was your favorite dinner recipe in 2010?

    This makes me laugh but validates what i have ALWAYS said:
    “As it turns out, the most viewed recipes here on How Sweet It Is tend to be of the sugary, chocolatey, gluttonous variety. ”

    The dinner options all either involved cheese, chicken, or the words tortilla/enchilada appear in the recipes. I guess if ppl can’t have chocolate, they want cheese-n-chicken…lol

    We are flying home today. Lord save me from the airports.

    I made something very similar to your chickpea soup and looooved it. It’s so perfect for cold winter days (which we seem to be getting plenty of!) I’ve been away from my computer this weekend, but I hope you had a very Merry Christmas Jess! :)

    I’m pretty sure Mr. How Sweet and my own wonderful man-friend are related. He eats 24/7. Steak, chicken, pork chops, more steak, chicken. He actually made Chicken Quesadillas to go with the Chicken Tortilla Soup.

    I’m a mac n cheese FREAK! My husband and I made the chicken mac n cheese and loved it. He hated whenever I made mac n cheese in the past cuz God forbid there was no meat in one single dinner i make! So this excited him…. we loved it and the combo of different cheeses was awesome.

    Chinese dry-cured hams have been recorded in texts since before the Song dynasty and used in myriad dishes. Several types exist in Qing dynasty cuisine and are used in dishes of stewing hams.
