The craze of foods in the last two years of blogging popular picks everything from 5 minute Artisian breads to Nutella wonton ravioli! It hasn't stopped. Desserts with Nutella have still been the biggest draw and attractions in views and reposts on other sites with popularity.
I have first hand experience with healthy foods not getting popular at all. I have a site called Blogsgotheart. Dedicated to a happy healthy heart of foods. Fat is flavor and more appealing to most viewers.
Italian food seems to be pretty universal these days and still my favorite to cook.
If I post something that has Nutella in it the views triples in views in an hour.
If I post Brussels sprouts with a gourmet flair I get a few looks, not many comments and virtual boos.
So here is what I predict what will bring your blog more views if you post more recipes and photo's of them in 2013.
Cupcakes of all kinds continue to be a huge hit

First and foremost for Dessert the number 1 popular views of the year in 2013 will be the Cupcake. Not just any cupcake but fancy, filled and frosted. Don't hesitate to make many this year to get more traffic especially a show stopper unique delicious cupcake. Get creative!
Second for sure will be the use of hot sauce in all forms. Get your hot sauce out because Buffalo everything will be popular all year round
