What a wonderful year we’ve had here on SouthernPlate! I’ve so enjoyed getting to hear about you and your families, share my family with you, and come together each day at our little virtual supper table. The Southern Plate Facebook page and Instagram have grown drastically and our Front Porch Fellowship Group, where we’ve recently started our daily scripture reading plan, is thriving.

It’s been a great blessing having you in my life and I want to thank you for the honor of letting me be a small part of yours. Today, as we wind up the year, I thought I’d share the posts from 2017 that y’all loved the most. I hope you find a new favorite among the list and if you do, be sure and come back and tell me! 2018 holds more meals together, more conversation, and more time spent connecting with those dearest to us. Wishing you an abundance of blessings in that and more!

Now let us dive right in!

Coming in at number 1 is:

 Soft Sandwich Style Hawaiian Bread

This is a favorite of my husband and kids alike so I usually make at least two loaves on the days I bake it. They never last long.

The BEST Thousand Island I’ve Ever Tasted takes the prize of #2 – and the fact that the #2 recipe is a salad dressing on a Southern cooking site really says a LOT about this dressing!

Snickerdoodle Quick Bread

This delicious bread comes in at #3 with little surprise. It tastes as wonderful as it looks!

Old Fashioned Fruit Cocktail Cake

This brings back memories of my childhood and apparently many of y’all share similar memories. What a blessing!

Zesty Bread Seasoning

This is a wonderful all around bread seasoning that has a myriad of purposes beyond that. Check out this post for instructions on making bread with it and check out my Zesty Chicken Tenders (a few recipes down) for another way to use it!

Hot Dog Chili Sauce

This chili sauce has been loved by my family since I was a little girl. Make hot dog night one of your favorite occasions! (Hint: make extra because it freezes beautifully)

Chantilly Sheet Cake

This is a very special cake recipe that I developed after my husband and I fell in love with a $30 version at a local supermarket. Perfect for any special occasion – or just a wonderful day in your life.

Zesty Baked Chicken Tenders

VERY flavorful and finger licking good!

Grandmama’s Japanese Fruit Pie

Memories this pie brings back put a tear in my eye every time.

Flamingo Cake

A fun recipe my mother and I whipped up with a dreamy, creamy, fruity taste that everyone loves!

  1. Cheesy Chicken and Rice
  2. Dinner in a Dish
