Every year I love to reflect back on what the most popular new recipes were from the year before. The Top 17 New Recipes in 2017 highlighted buddha bowls and zoodle bowls. And as you’ll see in this post, bowls are still a big hit!

This year I hosted “Whole30 March” with an entire month dedicated to Whole30 recipes. This was a very popular month! In fact, 8 of the recipes on this list were part of Whole30 March.  At the end of the month, I rounded up 30 Easy Whole30 Recipes with a Whole30 Shopping List.

This year, I also introduced Instant Pot recipes on the blog and people were excited! From easy basic recipes like Instant Pot BBQ Chicken to full dinners in the Instant Pot like this AMAZING Beef Stroganoff, the people have spoken and more Instant Pot recipes will be appearing on the blog in 2019!

Lastly, I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone that recipes with buffalo sauce topped this list! Ever since I introduced Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne to the blog in 2012, people keep coming back for recipes with buffalo sauce, so I’m here to give them to you, year after year!

Luckily, there are several brands of buffalo sauce that are whole30 approved and most are vegan and gluten free, making buffalo sauce an easy ingredient to add to any diet!

In addition to delicious recipes, this year on the blog I shared my Kitchen Remodel Reveal with all of the fun before & after pictures to go along with it!

I can’t wait to share more deliciousness in 2019! What can you look for in the new year? Definitely more Whole30 recipes, gluten free recipes, Instant Pot recipes, low carb recipes, zoodle bowls, buddha bowls and of course, buffalo sauce recipes!

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!

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, but I’m already planning for what to do with all of the leftovers!

Since there’s only so many turkey sandwiches I can eat, over the years I’ve come up with several different recipes perfect for repurposing your Thanksgiving leftovers!

From Turkey Tostadas with Pomegranate Guacamole to Mashed Potato and Bacon Pizza to Mushroom Spinach Turkey Quiche with Stuffing Crust, I’ve gotten creative over the last few years with how I transform my Thanksgiving leftovers into new & delicious meals.

This year, I’m sharing three new recipes that are perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers including Stuffing Biscuit Cranberry Turkey Sliders, Thanksgiving Leftover Pull Apart Bread and this pierogies recipe, filled with leftover mashed potatoes!

Authentic German Sausages in Where Else But… Oklahoma

In America, we do BBQ, in Italy they do Pizza and in Germany they do Sausages. When two German girls recommend a German restaurant, you eat there and you eat sausage!

My Dad used to work with these two girls and they would frequent Ingrid’s Kitchen for lunch. So of course while I was in town I met him for lunch to see what all the hype was about!

Since appearing on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives Ingrid’s has expanded their restaurant and their menu, but there’s one thing that’s remained the same and that is their homemade, authentic German sausages.

My Dad got his “usual” the #50 Smoked Sausage plate with sauerkraut, red cabbage and those amazing little German potatoes.

His Sausage was great but those potatoes were amazing, light and packed with flavor, I’d come back for a giant bowl of those alone!

I decided to try the Sausage Sandwich with ground veal and pork sausage, grilled onions and peppers.

The sausage was exactly how they described it, flavorful! The homemade bread was fresh and toasted perfectly with a light layer of peppers and onions.

I’ll be heading back to Ingrid’s for another dose of potato amazingness next time I’m in Oklahoma!

If you’d like to join in, visit Ingrid’s at 3701 N. Youngs, Oklahoma City, OK.
