Our Favorite Recipes From 2020

Our editorial team is dispersed across the country from coast to coast. Some of us have large families and others are happily coupled and keeping it small.

Like our readers, we found ourselves in the kitchen for much of 2020. We stocked our cupboards with simple ingredients to sustain ourselves and our families. Like you, we baked Banana Bread and No-Knead Bread. We cooked our way through major holidays, birthdays, and special events.

Below are the recipes that we turned to time and again throughout 2020 to sustain ourselves and our loved ones, some new this year and some old favorites.

Whether you’re feeding an army of seven like Claudia, our community manager, or making dinner for two like Emma, our editor in chief; living in the middle of America like Summer, Cambria, Sara, and Andy; trekking across the country to Maine with toddlers like Megan, or living in the Pacific northwest trying to wrangle teens and tweens like me, Rachel—we’ve cooked from the Simply Recipes website just like you.

We’ve each sought comfort, inspiration, and sanity throughout 2020, and these are our most loved recipes. Thank you for being here and cooking with us this year.
