1. Good Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Breakfast took the top spot this month, with this pancake recipe getting nearly 30,000 views. What makes them so special? Well, maybe because they're just like grandma used to make...literally.

You'll need only 7 ingredients to make them, and the video gives you tips for what the pancakes should look like when they're ready to flip over. Hint: Watch for bubbles.

4. World's Best Lasagna

Who would dare call a recipe the "world's best?" When John Chandler submitted this back in 2001, he meant the title as a bit of a joke.

It's still going strong with 20,000 views this month alone.
