This week, when someone asked me which of the hundreds of recipes on my site is the most popular of all time, I drew a complete blank. In all the years I’ve been publishing recipes on Nom Nom Paleo, it had never occurred to me to peer that deeply into my blog’s analytics.
When I finally checked, I was surprised to see that the single most visited recipe on my site— beating out favorites like Cracklin’ Chicken, Slow Cooker Kalua Pig, Asian Cauliflower Fried Rice, Sweet Potato Hash, and Magic Mushroom Powder—is a quick and easy side dish: Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon.
Maybe it’s because the simple act of roasting Brussels sprouts brings out their warm, nutty sweetness. Or perhaps it’s the allure of crisp bacon that draws people to this dish. Or maybe it’s just ’cause my discerning, super-smart, food-loving readers know a good thing when they see it.
p.s. SoCal folks: Don’t forget that I have a book signing at Whole Foods Market El Segundo on January 31st, 2015 from 11 am to 1 pm. Please RSVP here if you’re coming!
