I Tried Blackberry Brownies

They say don’t go to the grocery store hungry. Speaking from experience, I’d have to agree — and I’d add that you should never open Instagram on an empty stomach. The app has established itself as a digital landing pad for delicious and very aesthetic food inspiration, showcasing anything and everything that can trigger an instant Pavlovian response.

As we close out 2022, we wanted to look back on the top 10 recipes from Instagram that we simply couldn’t take our eyes off. In most cases, these recipes immediately had us run into the kitchen to try them out for ourselves — and after reading through this list, you’ll be very hungry and inclined to do the same.

Sesame Fried Eggs

If you're looking for a brunch-worthy dish that’s simple enough to make before heading off to work in the morning, make these sesame fried eggs. Adding sesame seeds on top of and under an egg while it fries basically creates an over-easy egg with lots of crunchy texture. It's a simple twist that completely stopped us in our tracks.

Baked Salad

A big bowl piled high with glossy, tender ribbons of warm green cabbage and kale, silky strands of tender red onion, and a generous shower of crispy quinoa — this baked salad recipe from Justine Snacks is a total stunner.

Sarah Kieffer Chocolate Chip Cookies 2.0

We were excited to see that Sarah Kieffer took to her Instagram to share a new version of her famous pan-banging chocolate chip cookie recipe, and guess what? They're far less fussy, have a softer center, and are yet another stroke of cookie genius.

Copycat Costco-Style Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

There's a reason Patty Catalano is Kitchn's resident Costco expert. That's because she knows the ins and outs of the wholesale grocery store and, at the drop of a hat, can distill her take on any given product. According to her, "Their muffins were no match for Gaby’s Double Chocolate Chip Muffins. In a side-by-side comparison, Gaby’s muffins were intensely dark in color with an intense, chocolatey flavor." So basically, make these muffins (with ingredients you get in bulk at Costco)!

Blackberry Brownies

While nothing beats a good old-fashioned brownie, we were impressed by Thida Bevington's very fresh take on a chocolatey classic. What takes them to an 11 is a blackberry and white chocolate ganache that drapes the tops and sides of the brownie base, tasting and looking like a decadent dessert straight out of a movie.

“Crispiest Potatoes on Instagram”

The recipe adds a few more steps than what you might be used to when making roasted potatoes, but it’s still quite straightforward, and the results are worth it. And with a name like the “Crispiest Potatoes on Instagram,” aren't you curious to try it?

Broma Bakery’s Oreo Peanut Butter Rice Krispies Treat

From ones spiked with eggnog or pumpkin spice, to ones with extra-toasty vibes, thanks to brown butter or the grilling method, Kitchn editors have never met a Rice Krispies Treat we didn't like. So it should come with zero shock that we freaked out when Sarah Crawford of Broma Bakery showed us how to make her Peanut Butter and Oreo Rice Krispies Treats. Now we know peanut butter-smothered Oreos and buttery marshmallow cereal are an elite combination.

Jennifer Aniston’s Favorite Salad

While we later found out Jennifer Aniston did not love this salad during her run on Friends, that didn't change the way we felt about its refreshing, nourishing energy. Said contributor Laurel Randolph: "I ate it four times for lunch and, you know what? I'd do it again." Enough said.
