If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, there’s a great chance you’ve heard me talk about, take pictures at or check in to Queenstown Public House. It’s my “Cheers” if you will. My neighborhood bar where “everybody knows my name.” But literally, I’ve been asked if I work there because people see me there so often!

It’s a gem and I’m a creature of habit. What can I say? I find something I love, I stick with it.

One of the things that keeps me coming back time and time again is their Prosecco Mint Sangria. It’s amazing.  So amazing that I decided to re-create it at home last weekend and share my version with you all!

OMG y’all! This creamy, dreamy mac and cheese recipe is EVERYTHING!

As the biggest Mexican Street Corn fan ever, I’m determined to add it to as many recipes as possible.

Because what could be better than creamy, spicy Mexican street corn paired with cheesy, velvety mac and cheese?! Nothing, I tell you, absolutely nothing!

This week, I’ve partnered up with some of my favorite fellow food bloggers to promote the “Food Blogger Winter Games”, a series of recipe posts from each blogger highlighting different countries cuisines ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

The country I selected to cook from was Germany and yesterday I shared a delicious recipe for Pork & Sauerkraut Cabbage Rolls. Today, I’m sharing a new one pot recipe for German meatballs and potatoes. This is a great dinner recipe for all those fellow “meat and potato” lovers out there! And that creamy lemon caper sauce, O-M-G, I dare you not to drink it straight from the pan, it’s seriously so good!

This recipe is very special for several reasons, it’s the first recipe photographed in my new house (yay!), it was inspired by my boyfriends love of cabbage rolls and it’s part of the “Food Blogger Olympics”, an initiative started by my friend Amy to celebrate the upcoming Winter Olympic Games!

For the “Food Blogger Olympics”, each blogger picked a country and created recipes inspired by that countries cuisine. I picked Germany because that’s where my boyfriend Kurt’s family is from and he loves German food. In the 3 years we’ve been together, I’ve learned a lot about German cuisine and decided it was time to spread my knowledge on the blog!
