Our 20 Most Popular, Most Delicious Recipes of the Last 10 Years
Imagine how many recipes you make over the span of a decade. In between the “just OK” and “never cooking this again,” there are rare bright spots—dishes that you want to make over and over, they’re that good. Over the past ten years, PureWow has published roughly 1,500 recipes. And while they’re all delicious in their own ways, some just hit the tastebuds differently. These are the 20 recipes you (and we) have loved the most.
20. Baby Blooming Onions
Mini just tastes better. We don’t make the rules.
19. Mini Mason Jar Apple Pies
The individual portions are just the right amount, and the mason jar packaging is a lot cuter than a standard pie dish. (And once again, you don’t have to share.)
18. The Best Potatoes au Gratin Ever
The name says it all. These spuds are smothered in cream sauce and lots of cheese for a rich, comforting side that can be made ahead and held in the fridge until you’re ready to bake it.
15. Skillet Gnocchi with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe
It’s hearty, delicious and tastes like you spent all day making it. (It takes 30 minutes, FYI.)
13. Easy One-Pan Ratatouille
Usually, ratatouille requires cooking each vegetable separately—and slowly. Our version might not be as authentic, but it’s weeknight friendly, and that’s saying a lot.
12. General Tso’s Cauliflower
Is this dish on the menu at your local takeout spot? We didn’t think so.
10. Balsamic Cranberry Roast Chicken
Thanks to your trusty cast-iron skillet, this roast chicken is completely hands-off and oh so seasonal. You don’t even have to brown it on the stove before putting it in the oven.
8. Cheese and Bacon Baked Potatoes
We’ve never met a potato we didn’t like. This one has cheese and bacon to seal the deal.
6. Baked Mac-and-Cheese Bites
It’s hard to improve on a classic. That’s why we made it bite-size and utterly snackable. Your go-to, made for on-the-go.
4. One-Pot, 15-Minute Pasta Limone
Behold, a dinner that doesn’t require a last-minute trek to the grocery, special ingredients or a ton of time. We’d make it every weeknight if we could.
3. Cacio e Pepe
It’s a six-ingredient pasta dish that takes 20 minutes to make. What’s not to love?
1. Spicy Whole Roasted Cauliflower
Not to brag, but we were so ahead of the cauliflower trend. This dish is as dramatic in presentation as it is easy in preparation, so naturally it’s our top recipe of all time.
