As we draw closer to 2014, I wanted to share with you the most popular “Honey, What’s Cooking” recipes of 2013. Although there are a few unhealthy recipes in the mix below, I’m so thrilled to report the #1 recipe favorited by y’all is a “healthy” one. That’s right. Scroll below to find out.
10. Jalapeno Popper Cream Cheese Sandwich
Cheesy, delicious, scrumptious. A delectable combination of creamy and spicy!
9. Sweet & Spicy Mayan Hot Chocolate (reduced-fat)
Another combination of creamy and spicy, plus sweet, try this Mayan hot chocolate and you may never want the classic kind again.
8. The BEST Guacamole
Delicious, chunky, flavorsome guacamole. I watched and learned from the folks at Dos Caminos in New York City.
7. Healthier Spinach Linguine Alfredo
Alfredo sauce without a ton of butter and cream? How? Thicken the sauce with a little butter and white flour along with some 2% reduced-fat milk and cheese. You won’t believe this dish is made with only 2 tablespoons of butter and NO cream.
6. Toasted Coconut Blueberry Muffins (reduced-fat)
Whole wheat muffins packed with nutrients… blueberries and coconut. You won’t feel guilty eating one or two of these babies, perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea.
5. Cilantro Lime Avocado Rice
Inspired by Chipotle, this creamy dish is made with brown rice and flavored with avocado and lime. Heavenly!
4. Slutty Brownies
These brownies were certainly NOT a favorite of mine, nor was it my recipe, and I even mentioned that in my review, but I suppose this topped your list… gotta be honest.
3. Cast Iron Skillet Spinach Mushroom Frittata
Looking for a high protein brunch with barely any carbs? Look no further. Try this frittata packed with spinach, mushrooms, cheddar cheese, and eggs! Keeps you full for hours.
2. 1-Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug
Don’t wanna spend too much time baking? Make this cookie in a mug, takes less than 5 minutes to assemble, and tastes scrumptious.
1. Spaghetti with Vegetarian Quinoa Meatballs
And the Oscar goes to…… Spaghetti with Vegetarian Quinoa Meatballs made with whole wheat spaghetti and Rao’s Marinara Sauce. You won’t miss the red-meat with these veggie meatballs. They’re amazing and packed with nutrition and flavor. If you make nothing from the list above, MAKE THIS!

My favourite was the toasted sandwich that had avocado and I think roasted vegetables in it
Oh I know what you're talking about, that was really delicious, yeah but I guess it didn't make the top 10, but I'm sure it would make the top 20. 🙂
Must try this quinoa pasta...love that it won out! And Rao's is really good stuff but expensive.I'll have to stop being cheap and buy some. 🙂
Have a great weekend Nisha. So nice seeing you yesterday.
OMG... you'd love the quinoa pasta.. packed with protein and so delicious. I'm cheap too Ameena, I just stock up on Rao's when it comes on sale, even if it's like $5 - $6 a bottle, that's the cheapest it's gonna go. 🙂
It was so nice to see you.. let's plan when Ali is out of town and bring Maya. It'll be nice and easier to meet for dinner so we can be out a few hours and not feel rushed.

This is great. I want to try the cilantro avocado rice and jalapeno sandwiches ASAP. This post is making me so hungry. Great round up.
Thanks Miryam... I LOVE those 2 recipes. It sucks I only make things once, I need to make that jalapeno sandwich again, it was so good. 🙂
That is such a hilarious name for a brownie. I love brownies so I have to try that slutty brownie recipe JC
