Share this Recipe!

Happy New Year to all of my awesome Daily Dish Recipes readers! Thank you for making these the best recipes of 2017!

The end of the year brings in a feeling of newness, a feeling of renewal and starting fresh. After the holiday rush, the parties and celebrations, it’s time to take a little time for reflection and of course goal setting. It’s about seeing what worked for the previous year, and what maybe didn’t. For a food blogger, it usually means taking a look at the recipes that worked, what reader’s thought were the best and which ones made the best recipes of 2017.

Banana Split Cheescake Bites

These Banana Split Cheesecake Bites were not surprisingly the favorite recipe of the year on the blog. They are so simple to make, taste delicious and look absolutely beautiful on a platter for dessert. It’s no wonder this was the best recipe of 2017! {pin for later}

Spicy Black Bean Quesadilla Bites

You almost have to wonder, since the top two recipes are “Bites” if that’s the trend here. People love being able to eat anything they want, but in small bites.  That’s definitely me! These Spicy Black Bean Quesadilla Bites are a great appetizer and can be made lots of different ways, leaving this recipe open to experimentation! {pin for later}
