Top 10 recipes of 2013

Canadian Living's Baby Kale Caesar Salad, from the October 2013 issue Before coming to Canadian Living, all of my recipes were sourced online. It's a popular place to find meals in a pinch and, on Wednesday, Google Trends released its Top 10 searches of 2013. The categories ranged from celebrities to diets to "how-tos" (twerking topped the latter list), and—you guessed it—recipes. Unfortunately, not all online recipes match our Test Kitchen's Tested-Till-Perfect guarantee, so if you're looking for the best of the best, read on for our versions of the most-searched recipes of 2013. 1. Spaghetti squash CL's take on the number one recipe search, our  Crispy Spaghetti Squash Bake, is even better than stove top versions. Nothing beats a crispy topping of bread crumbs and Parmesan. 2. Lasagna The name says it all: No lasagna recipe on the web can top The Ultimate Lasagna, which combines a rich meat sauce and creamy cheese. 3. Hollandaise sauce Perfect for our Classic Eggs Benedict, the Classic Hollandaise Sauce is simple yet delicious. 4. Borscht soup There are many modern spins on this classic Ukranian beet soup. Printed in the July 2013 issue, our Beet Borscht makes for a perfect summer soup and can be served warm or cold. 5.  Hamburger Don't let the name fool you. The Basic Burger is far from boring. Personalize yours our many Flavour Perks: pickled jalapeño, grated gingerroot or hot pepper Worcestershire  sauce, just to name a few. 6. Chicken Cacciatore One of The Test Kitchen's make-ahead meals, our Easy Chicken Cacciatore isn't just a breeze to whip up—it's also affordable. When we first printed this back in 2007, it was priced at only $2.86 per serving! 7. Rice Krispies squares Kids love making treats out of their favourite crackling cereal. Our Rice Crisp Squares require only four ingredients and deliver a low-calorie, low-fat treat the entire family can enjoy. 8. Tzatziki CL's Best Tzatziki takes only five minutes to prepare, and dresses kabobs or chicken or pork souvlaki beautifully. 9. Cronut A croissant-doughnut hybrid, Cronuts are prepared from a laminated dough that's sugared, filled and glazed. Developed and trademarked by Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City, pastries are loaded with 510 calories and 35 grams of fat. Meanwhile, our Mini Cinnamon and Sugar Buñuelos, a Hanukkah favourite, deliver the same amount of sweet at only 110 calories and 7 grams of fat per serving. 10. Kale salad Even if kale isn't your favourite leafy green, our creamy Baby Kale Caesar Salad is loaded with garlicky flavour. You'll forget you're eating a vitamin- and antioxidant-rich superfood!
