This Berry Sangria Iced Tea is a take on the Starbucks drink! Herbal iced tea mixed with a berry orange syrup, apple juice and blackberries! So refreshing for a hot summer day.

This recipe grew in popularity very quickly over the summer.  Apparently many of you were googling how to make Starbucks Berry Sangria Iced Tea at home!  I’ve heard back from quite a few of you who think it tastes just like the Starbucks version.


8. Soft Beer Pretzels with Beer Cheese Dip


This recipe has been like a runaway train!  I only published it about a month ago and it has already become my third most pinned recipe of all time.  But Soft Beer Pretzels and Beer Cheese Dip, how can that NOT be a hit?

The Irish Mule is a refreshing cocktail made with ginger beer, lime juice and whiskey. Enjoy this on Saint Patrick's Day or any time of year!

I made this Irish Mule for St. Patricks Day, and I was a bit surprised that it became the most popular cocktail on my site. I don’t know why I was surprised, because what’s not to love about ginger beer, lime juice and whiskey?  It even spawned a few variations including the Apple Cider Irish Mule, The Cranberry Irish Mule and the Pomegranate Irish Mule, and although all are delicious, none are quite as popular as the original.


5. Ginger Peanut Lettuce Wraps

These Ginger peanut lettuce wraps are filled with colorful veggies, your protein of choice, and the most addictive peanut sauce ever!

These Ginger Peanut Lettuce Wraps shot to popularity after being featured on Buzzfeed, and I’m glad they did!  These are super easy if you have leftover chicken or use a store bought rotisserie chicken.  Also I could drink the peanut sauce, no joke.

3. Easy Chicken Ramen

This Easy Chicken Ramen can be made at home in about 30 minutes! A flavorful broth with chicken and noodles, and don't forget the ramen egg!

I TRY not to play favorites, but I think that this Easy Chicken Recipe might be my favorite recipe on Fox and Briar.  I worked on fine tuning this recipe so that it was super flavorful but still easy to make, using ingredients that can be found at the supermarket.  I hear lots of great feedback from my readers that you love it too!



2. Buffalo Chicken and Broccoli Bowls

This Buffalo Chicken and Broccoli Bowl is fast, easy and flavorful. Chicken and broccoli in a buffalo sauce, served over cauliflower rice makes a gluten free, low carb, high protein, paleo and whole 30 friendly meal!

I created these Buffalo Chicken and Broccoli Bowls with Cauliflower Rice last January as a healthy and quick dinner.  It’s paleo, Whole 30, gluten free and takes under half an hour to make, so I guess it is no surprise that it is coming in at number two on the list!
