Top 20 Most Popular The Kitchen Docs Recipes of 2020

See if your favorite TKD recipes made the list of these top 20 recipes of 2020

Needless to say, 2020 was anything but an ordinary year. The good thing is, that it’s behind us. You all have shown a lot of love to the blog in 2020 and for that I am forever grateful. Some of you reached out and asked me to do this top 20 most popular list of recipes from the past year, so here it is! I took a look back at the analytics for 2020 and came up with this list for you all. These data can sometimes be misleading, since the recipes from the beginning of the year obviously get more views and love from you than the ones that were, say, came around in November – December. 


In 2020, I also looked for pointers from you all – that what your expectations are from this forum and then tuned the content accordingly. I still am, very much a spontaneous cook and I write down and photograph recipes that I cook for my family. So no blog agenda or planner here but I love the pointers you send me or when you respond to my polls on Instagram and Facebook. It definitely gives me a direction to think. Since I do not blog full time, I appreciate this even more. 

If 2020 taught us anything in the kitchen, it was how to improvise with what we had on hand, make full use of pantry items, yeast was nowhere to be found (hello yeast free naan!), hold our loved ones close, and count our blessings. Being present here on the blog and sharing recipes and my love of food and cooking with y’all kept me motivated and sane. Your appreciation, likes, comments, photos, and inspiring messages always mean so much to me!
