SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week Isabel at Family Foodie is hosting and the theme is Retro Recipes Then and Now.

raspberry jam cakesLong time no see!  I have been so uninspired lately.  I have been busy and just not interested in doing all the work to make something yummy and then take the pictures and create a post.  It was just too much.  Therefore, I knew the only way that I would get back into the kitchen with some gusto would be to do some baking.  When I saw that the Sunday Supper crew were doing retro recipes I decided to dig for some delicious baked good from yesteryear.  And found these lovely cakes to make for any good tea party!

Peaches and Cream Ice Cream

Did you see all the pictures from Northern Spark?  OMG it was so much fun and so beautiful!!  There was so much are and a lot of it was interactive.  I went to The Walker first.  They had some drawings, bedtime stories and bon fires.  Next I went to The American Swedish Institute, where we yarn bombed our bikes.  Later I headed over to Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  They had so much going on; the group swinging, capture the flag, shadow puppets, this human video game thing, face paint and a glow in the dark space with people playing music that I don’t understand, but looked super cool.

It was so awesome!!  I am so glad my friend told me about it!  It will now be a yearly ritual of mine I am sure.  Oh and there were bikes every where!!
