Letter from the Editor | What a Year!

Updated January 1, 2020
We countdown your favorite recipes from the past year, plus a sneak peek of what’s to come in 2020.

What a Year!

Oh 2019, you’ve been a wild ride. Personally, it’s been a pretty fun year for me—this was my first year as editor for, and I can’t believe how many fun things I’ve been able to do and be a part of so far. From learning how to make ice cream in a bag to mastering the Million Dollar Grilled Cheese and hacking my way through the holidays, there haven’t been too many dull moments around here. While we’re feeling reminiscent, and also because I’m a sucker for a good countdown list, let’s take a look back at some of our most loved recipes from 2019:

Looking Ahead

Do you have any resolutions? I’m actually a big fan of making goals for myself, so long as they don’t have to do with losing weight (with all the good food I’m surrounded by all day long, I pretty much have to rule that resolution out; for instance, our new recipe for better-than-sex bundt cake recipe—yeah, no weight-loss happening here with that thing around). Last year I promised myself I’d learn a little bit of French every day, and guess what? Amazingly, I kept my resolution! I still can’t speak French fluently or anything, but I have a better understanding of the language and a petite quantité of new words that I now know. In 2020, I’m going to continue to challenge myself to learn more. Specifically, more learning in the kitchen. With the weather as gross and cold as it is, the more time I can spend inside doing something fun and exciting, the better. Lately myself and the other Tablespoon editors have been collaborating with the experts down in the kitchens to come up with some recipes that use unusual ingredients that we might not otherwise know anything about, much less use in everyday cooking. We’ll be sharing what we came up with in the coming weeks, but here’s a hint: all of the ingredients originate from Korea. Intrigued? Make sure you keep up to date on what we’re working on by following us on Instagram or Facebook, or subscribe to our daily email. Happy new year!
