A look back through 2013’s most popular recipes as well as my favorites for the year.
Top Recipes of 2013 from The Lemon Bowl2013 was an incredible year both personally and professionally. On the personal side, we watched our oldest son transform from a 16 month old baby into a running, climbing and thriving toddler. In November, we welcomed our second son into the world and have loved every single second with him these last two months.

Kids on the Rug - The Lemon BowlOn the professional side, my food blogging hobby officially became my full time career when I quit my day job of 5 years in March. In the following months, I had the privilege of traveling throughout the country to attend various conferences and press trips. From California to Orlando to Austin and more, I am so grateful for these experiences.

Fields and Mountains - The Lemon BowlWhen I started sharing recipes with all of you back in 2010, I never imagined it would turn in to what it has become today. Beyond that, I could never have fathomed the friendships I would form. While I knew I was blessed with the friends I’ve made over the years, nothing beats the day close to 40 food bloggers surprised me with a virtual baby shower.

Before I turn into a sobbing, emotional mess of gratitude, let’s get to the recipes! I had so much fun taking a look back at your favorite recipes from 2013. While I was researching the most popular posts from the year, I also put together a list of my personal favorites.
