At the end of a year, I like to look back and take “inventory” of my recipes and how they were viewed. In regard to the Most Popular Recipes of 2023, the recipes ranged all over the spectrum with German Recipes coming in at the top. Recipe for Kielbasa Sauerkraut and Potatoes


Top Twelve Recipes for 2023

This recipe for Kielbasa Sauerkraut with Potatoes was my all time favorite with over 20,000 views. I find this quite odd, as it didn’t even rank in the top 15 last year. It’s an easy one-dish recipe to make for your family as a weeknight dinner. Flavored with onion, garlic, thyme, and sage, it’s quite satisfying.

#5 – Thick Venison Chili remains in the top five recipes. A lot of my venison recipes have ranked in the top 50 recipes. For the first 15 years of our marriage, our family practically lived on venison that my husband hunted, both deer and elk. After much trial and error, I learned the best recipes for using the roasts, steaks, and burger. This is one of them!

#11 – This one really surprised me, as my Italian dishes do not usually get much attention. I’m guessing this might be because of our German family name, which doesn’t lend much authenticity to Italian recipes. No matter the reason, I’m delighted to see that Tiramisu with Cream Cheese made it into the top twelve this year. It is a delicious recipe to try the next time you serve an Italian dinner for your family!
