10. Slow Cooker Pulled Venison
Our easy venison roast recipe cooks away in the slow cooker while you're at work so you come home to juicy pulled meat that you can use however you'd like. We love it on sandwiches, but it's also great for fajitas and soups.
9. Cherry Pie Moonshine
Did our Cherry Pie Moonshine grace your table this summer as you celebrated the Fourth or July or Memorial Day? A few jars of this made it out on the Guadalupe River here in Texas, making this infusion one of the best we published this year.
8. Chocolate Bird Nests
Our Easter-themed recipe was a huge hit this year, and with only three ingredients, we had a feeling y'all would love it! Did you bookmark this festive recipe for next year?
7. Sweet Tea Moonshine
There are few things we love more than moonshine, and that's moonshine infusions! One of many to grace this list, this particular moonshine infusion was created with a summer bonfire in mind. Best enjoyed in a circle with loved ones, infuse this variety for holiday gifts this year!
6. Pecan Snowball Cookies
Published in November, these Pecan Snowball Cookies were an immediate hit with our community. The slight hint of almond take these cookies from the realm of too sweet to one that's decadent and filled with pecans. They melt in your mouth like whoa.
5. Dreamsicle Moonshine
One of the first infusions we created, this citrus moonshine flavor was a serious fan favorite. The addition of coffee creamer adds a depth of flavor that takes this orange moonshine from tangy to creamy, and it's oh so worth it.
4. Cornbread Enchilada Skillet
A skillet casserole with a cornbread bottom, this got us through many a busy week in 2017 and y'all loved it, too! Made with pantry ingredients, it's a 20-minute dinner miracle we still make every week.
3. Slow Cooker Beer Can Chicken
The best dinner is the one you didn't have to cook yourself, and with this easy slow cooker recipe, our community knew a good recipe when they saw it. With directions so simple, it's almost magic that it yields such a juicy roast chicken.
2. French Toast Casserole
You'll find our favorite French Toast Casserole on the table Christmas morning and for the 2,000 of you who loved this recipe, we suspect it'll be on yours, too!
With ingredients everyone has in their refrigerator and pantry, this casserole is even delicious when craving breakfast for dinner.
1. Homemade Texas Sausage Kolache
This was, by far, our most loved recipe this year and we wouldn't have it any other way. While we learned that sausage kolache are actually called klobasniky this year, so many refer to sausage pastries at kolache, we thought it was most fitting.
While we've published a Sour Cherry Kolache recipe, this classic and meaty Texas favorite was loved by over 3,000 of you in a victory landslide.
