Most Popular Recipes

While didn’t start out as a recipe site, it certainly has become part of what makes the site tick, and I’ve realized that what we need now is a round up of the most popular recipes. Especially after getting a request from the next generation for some family recipes, it seemed like the perfect time to share some of the best recipes I’ve shared over the years.

As regular readers will know, I have also been lucky to work with great Canadian Chefs to share their recipes here on Many of these recipes have become family staples, and we know readers who come back for the most popular recipes regularly for special meals and holidays.

One of the great things I've been able to over the years is work with wonderful world-class Chefs here on, through judging and in my work with Second Harvest's Toronto Taste.

While I love sharing my recipes and family recipes, I love sharing recipes from professional Chefs adjusted for the home kitchen. Seeing ingredients, flavours and techniques through professional eyes can bring a brand new spark to your everyday meals (mine too!). And that is exciting!

In addition to food recipes, we’ve also worked on a list of great drinks and cocktails. These are, for the most part, boozy, so you if keep sober this isn’t the list for you. But don’t worry, if you are interested, I do have non-booze versions and beverages recipes I’m happy to share.

I will revise this list to ensure it is up to date as I add more recipes and with shifting times. It’s amazing to see which recipes get attention at different times and as culinary trends shift and changes. ( has been around long enough that those changes and shifts really do show up in our stats.)

In the meantime, I’d love to hear about which recipes you like most, which you’ve tried and which inspire you to think about trying them in your own kitchens.
